The Art of Survival follows the development of Lara Croft from some of her earliest concept art (there was a monkey involved), to her final finished render. Not simply a book of art, The Art of Survival also features a “director’s commentary” by Senior Art Director Brian Horton, who hand picked each image featured within the hefty 272 page book.
We here at Nerd Appropriate love us some good chip-tune music (see our Anamanaguchi interview for proof!). What happens when you mix the raw creativity of the Mass Effect 2 soundtrack with the pure fun of 8-bit? The answer… Jimmy Hinson’s Big Giant Circles. BGC’s first full length album, Impostor Nostalgia, boasts over 75 minutes of classic 8-bit inspired music for a mere $3.99. Did we mention the album is pretty damn incredible? Do yourself a favor and head on over to the Big Giant Circles website and pick yourself up a copy… You will not be disappointed. Below you’ll find an embed of the album for your streaming enjoyment… and we maaaay be giving away a few copies to some lucky readers.
