One of the most exciting upcoming video game releases (at least for me anyway) just got a little bit more exciting. The game is called Firewatch, and it looks truly remarkable in its simplicity.
Not only will the game be released on February 9th (less than a week from now!), but it will be available not for the usual $60 new game price tag, but for only $20, which is pretty amazing. On top of that, I just discovered that geek favorite artist Olly Moss worked on the art for the game as well.
You can find more info and watch a handful of new preview videos for Firewatch below.
It’s always nice when you get to write about The Last of Us again, even if it doesn’t involve whether or not developer Naughty Dog is going to be making The Last of Us 2 after Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End or not.
No this bit of news is related to one of the best aspects of the game, its phenomenal score composed by two-time Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla. It’s been announced that the full soundtrack, including the soundtrack for the DLC release “Left Behind,” will be released by Mondo Music on vinyl in an impressive little four-album collection, complete with some lovely artwork by Olly Moss and Jay Shaw.
You can read more about the vinyl release, see images of the set and the full cover art, and also watch a video about the music of the game, which I love to watch and share any time I have an excuse to.
Comic-Con is the one place where geek collectors go mad, and if you like to collect pop culture art pieces, then you will no doubt be at the Mondo booth at this year’s convention in San Diego in just a few days, waiting in line to score an exclusive piece from them. This year won’t be any different from any other year, as Mondo will be releasing limited edition posters that you only can get at the con.
Artists like Drew Struzan, Martin Ansin, and Olly Moss will be there to sign their one of a kind pieces for those who are able to get them. They will be there to sign The Dark Tower, Conan the Barbarian, Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle, respectively. There will also be four kinds of posters for Pacific Rim. But of course, that is only the tip of the iceberg. We should expect very big things to be happening over at the booth.
You can check out a preview of all of these posters, their specs, and their prices here after the jump.
Last year, Mondo debuted a collection of Academy Award-nominated posters that were released at random times during the Oscar ceremony. Like all their poster releases, it was a success, so they are doing it again this year.
Once again multiple artists have drawn up their vision of the nominated films and we’ve got the first three Olly Moss, Laurent Durieux, and DKNG that will go on sale this Sunday during the broadcast of the Academy Awards. The first three films featured are Les Miserables, Paranorman, and The Master. Check them out here below, along with details about each poster, including specs and pricing.
Earlier this year, when it was announced that Mondo had acquired the rights for Lord of the Rings, fans of the art house and J.R.R. Tolkien surmised that there would be a poster for released in conjunction with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, opening in theaters this Friday. Well the wait is over, and with the film hitting theaters in less than two days, Mondo has unveiled Olly Moss‘ vision of The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Check out both – yes there are two – versions of the poster below.
So how do you get this “precious” poster in your hands? Well like most of the previous Mondo releases, you have to follow Mondo on Twitter to find out when the poster goes on sale. Remember Mondo could post the poster on sale at any time.
