I usually buy art books to read about the concept and decisions around the art, not just for pure pictures of the subject. This book did not disappoint me at all, in fact I think if you're looking at any game dev, this should be one of your textbooks.
If you want to gain some incredible understanding into the story of Remember Me, while a very average game, the story and art style is among some of the best. I feel the game came to short comings as the story was almost too good to fit into a singular game, or within the confines of such a player base.
This is coming from a student studying BCT at AUT and game dev so I'm looking critically into this in how it would help me, not just a purely entertainment purpose, although I feel this book nails both. You're greeted by a very well designed book cover and then 3 pages of text by the Creative Director and Art Directors. This is a great intro and allows you to really get the feel of the book. Every page usually has text about the decisions made and why. The world in Remember Me is so intricately detailed and this book goes even more in depth, its a book into the mind of the studio and its such a shame the game didn't hit higher ratings.
Overall, if you want a genuinely engrossing art book, that you can easily pick up for inspiration and detailed concepts of stunning scenery, just buy the damn thing.
I played Remember Me a while back and I was really impressed by the art of the video game. It made a huge impression on me (because I LOVE cyberpunk) and dare I say, it's definitely a game I'll remember for being different and original.
I could tell the art director and the concept artists had a lot of love for this project because it was reflected in their stunning artwork. Boy, and do I mean stunning. I was just mindblown by how gorgeous the pieces were. Ugh, there are no words to describe how I felt. Please check out this game and the art if you haven't already. You'll see what I mean.
In the back of the book there's a message that says "I hope this book inspires you" and indeed it does inspire me. There are days when I feel really bad about my artwork, but these books give me incentive to work harder until I reach my goals. Hopefully someday I'll be a concept artist with my work featured on beloved projects just like this.
Five stars. I loved it. I wish I could give it more. One of my favourite books, definitely.
But once I checked it out I immediately noticed that the gameplay was nothing to write home about, the designs on the other hand vibrant, moving and really impressive.
So once the artbook arrived at my house, I immediately flipped to the area design section of the book and all of it was intricate and incredibly inspired. Although they briefly go into the character design stages I felt those were rather under whelming.
The enemy designed however were very cool to see.
I recommend this as a strong buy.
