Get your hands on the brutal art of Brutal Legend

brutal_legend_20090507141450Remember the ‘Brutal Art of Brutal Legend‘ panel that I posted about way back in March? Were you as disappointed as me when none of the wonderful art to be discussed during the presentation actually made its way to the public?

Fret no more, because you’ll find that a total of 26 images have been added to the BRUTAL! galleries: eight in the ‘Concept Art’ gallery, and 18 in the ‘Miscellaneous’ gallery.

There is some pretty awesome stuff here, showing aspects of the development and game that haven’t been seen before. For example, check out an abandoned Eddie concept with a distinctly Lemmy-esque vibe; you can also see a number of different vehicles, loads of unseen environments, and even the first beast himself Ormagöden.

Clearly there’s going to be a breathtaking amount of environmental variety and eye candy in Brutal Legend, with superb art direction holding it all together. Thanks very much to Noyb for providing these images.


[May 8th, 2009 at 9:36am GMT+1] Some people have pointed out that these images have a slightly blurry quality to them. I just want to clarify that these are unavoidably a little blurrier than the game proper will look as they’re derived from a compressed presentation shown at Game Developers Conference, and were re-scaled to fit the presentation hardware.

Lots of awesome pics here! They provide some cool details into stuff we havent seen yet. For example, in one of the pics it looks like Eddies axe and guitar have some sort of upgrade or “fire spell” or something on them as they appear to be glowing red with power on his back. Not to mention all the awesome new environment screens!

That sky has got to be the single coolest thing I have ever seen. Wow. Just, wow.

Nice job, plus has images not posted as well. I may change my desktop from the Eddy rocking image to one of them. Though I may not since that one barely fits.

gives me the chills

The scope of some of those environmentals can only remind me of Shadow of the Colossus. This game evolves into something even cooler with each update

and I did change my desktop

Hee, thanks Mykal. Quite a few sites have picked up on this, including GameSpy, Joystiq, and Shacknews. Nice to see there’re so many people looking forward to Brutal Legend out there!
