Yet another must have visually stunning coffee table companion perfectly suited for any person who appreciates the artistic ingenuity that goes into the design and development of a video game. The dust jacket has a smooth, almost liquid velvet touch to it and the vibrant reds ever so perfectly hash their way into the black darkness. A metallic overlay has been added to specific areas, thus creating this awesome coffee table piece to be drooled over by all who dare to draw near it. “Chi Wai Lao’s final approved drawing of what would become the iconic Engineering Suit was his 38th try at it, and that’s after many other artists had a go at Isaac before him.” Inside, over 300 stunningly captivating pieces of artwork can be found, including the most model sheets for a game I have ever seen within a book. Nothing is left out; from the sketch-ups to the final turn tables, we get an insiders view of the ingenuity behind one of the most beguiling games to come to market. This compendium takes you through the seven-year journey behind the scenes of the creative geniuses at Visceral Games studio, behind the video game, Dead Space. As a game designer, I can fully appreciate all of the details put into these companion books. It’s not just about the game story, but of the birth and creation from one idea that blossoms into the next idea. It’s more than just smashing  a few buttons on a controller while attempting to beat the game. It truly is about a much larger picture unseen by most, yet appreciated by millions. Even if you are not an avid gamer, if you are into art, this is a book that you must have. *You can view the original review at City Book Review
