Rage is Coming October 4th!

I'm always working, so it's hard to find time to post. But I worked on this, so I had to take time out to post about it! I'm so looking forward to this game. And I'm not even a hardcore gamer. From what I've seen, it looks like it will set the bar for first person shooters. Absolutely incredible.
I was lucky enough to work with art director Stephan Martiniere and design a lot of in game assets, mainly posters, billboards and graffiti. Each faction or clan has their own style of tagging and visual iconography, so it was a blast getting to design a lot of that.
I'm already addicted to the ipad app that came out to preview the gameplay, but I can't wait for the full version.
The user plays as a survivor of the 2029 Apophis meteorite impact who has just awoken from an Ark (a world-wide movement which took scientists and other significant people, and froze them underground in cryo-pods so they could rebuild Earth). Soon, the player comes to realize that his Ark has malfunctioned and that he is the only survivor.
The Game hits stores Oct. 4th, so check it out. You can see more here. I'll be first in line!
