BioShock – Better Than The Movies? August 29, 2007

Posted by Ivan Pols in art, BioShock, character design, culture, design, fantasy art, games, painting.


I don’t have an Xbox, but if I did, I’d probably risk divorce and buy BioShock by 2K Games. The previews of the world they have created are awesome and well worth a visit even if you don’t like to play games. The art direction is tremendous. I was chatting with a guy I know who worked on the concept boards for 300 and does a lot of artwork for gaming companies and he raved about the level of detail 2K have gone to on this property. He reckoned that it’s changed the way the industry thinks about their production values. Every nook and cranny is beautifully designed. In fact, the production values easily rival most blockbuster films released today. If you have never heard of this game before this post you definitely have to check out the site. This is not Wolfenstein.
