When I saw it at a local bookshop, I grabbed it immediately. Oddworld is a comprehensive fictional universe presented in video game form, created by game developers Oddworld Inhabitants under the direction of Lorne Lanning.

This art book covers a decade of art work spanning a few game titles whi More pictures at parkablogs. There's extensive character coverage with chapters devoted to Abe, Munch and Stranger. That's on top of other concept designs included for all other characters that feature in the games. There are extensive sketches with scribbled notes, 3D renders and full colour illustrations. Also included are concept paintings for the backgrounds, weapons, vehicles and other props for the game.

The captions provided describe the world of Oddworld and the ideas behind. It talks about changes in designs, such has the requirement of a three-finger character instead of four fingers because of negative connotations in the Japanese market.

The writeup is great and there's something to read on every page. This is a paperback book published by Ballistic Publishing. There are both paperback and hardcover versions for the normal edition. If you're getting, get the hardcover because the binding on the paperback isn't that great, and this book is thick at pages. This book is recommended more for Oddworld fans and game artists.

By nature, these 'behind-the-scenes' companions often provide a newfound appreciation to their video game counterparts, but few execute as well as this one does. Covering 4 games across the first decade of Oddworld - Abe's Oddysee, Abe's Exodus, Munch's Oddysee and Stranger's Wrath - you'll walk away a true expert of the award-winning franchise. The early chapters cover the inspiration and conceptualization, both Without a doubt, The Art of Oddworld is easily one of my favourites in the library.

The early chapters cover the inspiration and conceptualization, both of which were heavily led by series mainstays Sherry McKenna and Lorne Lanning. The hardships and dangers endured by the diamond-miners in South Africa.

The elusion of extinction by the most desperate of creatures. The loss of culture and way-of-life amidst onslaughts of industry. Some pretty deep and dark realities we face in our own world, have translated to the cartoonish, albeit heartfelt, representations we know and love from the franchise. This immediately had me hooked. Next up, is a presentation of its scale. Oddworld is huge. We've come to know the staple locales like Rupture Farms, Magog Motors and SoulStorm Brewery, but you'll quickly realize that the entire planet has been fleshed out with a rich lore, only a fraction of which has even been mentioned in the games.

And further behind the scenes tidbits offer insight into some of these ideas that never quite came to fruition. How about that designs of the character hands and some in-game popsicles all had to be redone because of the cultural believes of Japan.

Couple all of this with the usual concept art, storyboard designs, and character bios that are a given with these types of books, and you've got yourself a pretty incredible centerpiece for your coffee table.

Keeping in mind that I'm a big fan of the games, so bias is playing its role in my review, if you've had any enjoyment with the franchise over the years, I highly recommend this one. Sep 30, Dax rated it it was amazing. A great art book, well presented on very nice paper. For fans of Oddworld, this explains quite a bit about the universe.

It is also good for artists who might want some inspiration. I have never seen art like this before in a video game and it is one of my favorite game series. Definitely a unique style.

Peter Plantec contributes to the Digital Eye column this month with a riff on the wizardry of previs. My first thought upon thumbing through this slick new book was: When are these guys going to print some posters? The Art of Oddworld Inhabitants: The First Ten Years contains so many beautiful images that Id find it difficult to choose just one to have as a poster; I would want them all! Putting my poster greed aside, I realize these folks know theyve got something amazing to offer and are careful with how they exploit it. An example is the book cover art; its barely a tease.
