Two of the characters narrate the game's plot as the video flows through this animated, graphic novel style journey. The graphics and textures are phenomenal and the game menus and packaging will feature equally compelling style.</p> <p>See the video and some additional screen shots below.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="347" title="Design, insomniac, resistance3" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/08/17/resistance_3_art_01.png?1313631137" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/resistance-3-motion-graphic-illustrated-journey" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/resistance-3-motion-graphic-illustrated-journey#comments design game graphic video video game Thu, 18 Aug 2011 00:40:09 +0000 wardandrews 3243 at http://design.org Awesome Audio and Design from Astro Gaming Headphones http://design.org/blog/awesome-audio-and-design-astro-gaming-headphones <p><img src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/blog-full-scale/blog/2011/04/25/astro_headphones_10.png" alt="Design, headphones, astro" title="Design, headphones, astro" class="imagecache-blog-full-scale" /></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="538" title="Design, headphones, astro" alt="Design, headphones, astro" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/04/25/astro_headphones_10.png?1303801093" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/awesome-audio-and-design-astro-gaming-headphones" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/awesome-audio-and-design-astro-gaming-headphones#comments design gaming headphones industrial music video game Tue, 26 Apr 2011 15:14:21 +0000 wardandrews 2809 at http://design.org The ABCs of Superheroes: Typography and Poster Design by Fabian Gonzalez http://design.org/blog/abcs-superheroes-typography-and-poster-design-fabian-gonzalez <p><img src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/blog-full-scale/blog/2011/04/11/superhero_-minimal_1.jpg" alt="Design, superhero, abcs" title="Design, superhero, abcs" class="imagecache-blog-full-scale" /></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="756" title="Design, superhero, abcs" alt="Design, superhero, abcs" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/04/11/superhero_-minimal_1.jpg?1302567499" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/abcs-superheroes-typography-and-poster-design-fabian-gonzalez" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/abcs-superheroes-typography-and-poster-design-fabian-gonzalez#comments comic design graphic poster print typography video game Tue, 12 Apr 2011 00:23:40 +0000 jessicapatterson 2780 at http://design.org The iCade: An Arcade for Your iPad http://design.org/blog/icade-arcade-your-ipad <p><a href="http://www.thinkgeek.com" target="ThinkGeek">ThinkGeek</a> originally created this playful and ingenious design as an April Fools spoof, but they say the iCade product design will become a reality and be available for purchase in June 2011. </p> <p><img src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/blog-full-scale/blog/2011/03/23/icade_1.jpg" alt="Design, icade, ipad" title="Design, icade, ipad" class="imagecache-blog-full-scale" /></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="528" title="Design, icade, ipad" alt="Design, icade, ipad" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/03/23/icade_1.jpg?1300922749" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/icade-arcade-your-ipad" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/icade-arcade-your-ipad#comments design games industrial ipad video game Thu, 24 Mar 2011 03:09:09 +0000 jessicapatterson 2740 at http://design.org Super Rad Nintendo Poster from Allan Peters http://design.org/blog/super-rad-nintendo-poster-allan-peters <p><a href="http://cargocollective.com/peters" target="Allan Peters">Allan Peters</a> designed this Super Rad poster as a contribution for <a href="http://www.toysintheatticshow.com/" target="Toys in the Attic">Toys in the Attic</a>, a toy drive and art show in Minneapolis.
