New York based designer Andrés Moncayo has published a fantastic project of painted over NES games which consists of a repainting of screenshots from the mythic NES gaming console. He painted over some true classics such as Double Dragon II, Contra II and more! These are just marvelous... any 70's and 80's kids will really enjoy these artworks by Andrés. For more of paintings and GIF comparisons, please visit Andrés' portfolio at Behance! He'll definitely enjoy it! Cheers. ;)
The latest installment of the Batman Arkham series, Arkham Knight, has got some pretty dramatic scenes. Gotham is a dark yet majestic place, and the game need a talented artist to create equally gorgeous scenes and environments. Rocksteady Studios has just the man for that task: Ronan Mahon. He's got to come up with some of the environments for the game, more precisely Riddler's Orphanage and the Oracle Clocktower. These came out to be really awesome and you really got check them out.
Have you ever played Sim City? If you did, than you probably are a big fan of city simulators. We've seen some nice titles like Cities XL, Tropico and even the latest Sim City, but there was something about Cities: Skylines that caught my attention. It's a fun, super easy, beautiful game and the player has so much freedom to build the dream city. It's just amazing, and the Steam community is pretty engaged, coming up with amazing mods for the game, such as buildings, parks and road intersections. It's definitely a game to be appreciated a LOT.

Both are a great communities for designers everywhere.
We've always seen things from our time designed in vintage style. From advertising for Twitter and Facebook, to iPods from a past era. This time there's something fresh for all of those who love modern vintage design: modern games designed as Atari cartridges. Gotta say I've spent many hours playing some of these games, like Age of Empires III, and it's really cool to see it like that. Makes you think of how rustic these game would've been if released 20 years ago. These are the work of American designer StarRoivas (didn't find her name).
Like I promised to all of you yesterday, today is also 3D day! But differently from tomorrow, I felt the need for some movement. While stereographics are stills, stereoscopic has movement and man, I didn't think it would be this awesome.
It's been a long time since we had any collection post here. I'm in a Half-Life frenzy these last few days... just finished Episode 2 and went looking for news about Episode 3, and all I could find was some concept arts. That gave me an idea.
Lately I'm on a gaming fever. Video games have been a part of my life since ever, and there are some games that just stand out, for its quality, and most of all, for its badassness. Yeah, we love badass games, like the awesome God of War. So I went looking for some cool illustration of it, and found out some really cool ones, and I got say, that Kratos is like an freaking mythologic Chuck Norris. This guy would seriously tear apart a 20ft monster with his bare hands. No, seriously. Hahaha, just kidding...
One of the hottest game at this moment is making zombies hit gamers everywhere once more. Left 4 Dead is one hell of a thrill ride in a post apocaliptic world, but what deserves our attention right now, is the quality of the computer graphics! Everybody knows that we are suckers for 3D renderings, and boy, these are totally stunning... and the best of it all is that these are all in-game screens. Of course, there also the awesome posters that illustrate each chapter of this gruesome game. Anyways, check these out, I bet you'll really dig it. Cheers! ;)
During a little visit to Fubiz yesterday, I ran into something that really got my attention: Videogame remake wallpapers! These are really incredible and just blew my mind! Since many people didn't find the link to the author's page and didn't get to download these wallpapers, I'm also posting abou it and making direct links to each wallpapers.
As a dedicated gamer I always follow the news in the industry and new releases in particular. This week I came across “American McGee’s Grimm”. Gameplay aside, this game is very interesting from the point of view of design. American McGee (visit his blog at http://www.americanmcgee.com/wordpress/ ) is a prominent game designer - dark rich style of his games is always recognizable and creates an unmistakable atmosphere. American McGee (born December 13, 1972) is an American game designer.
