BioShockPunk Aesthetics


One of the nice things about improving computer graphics is the increasing variety of artistic directions I see in videogames. When polycounts and texture sizes were low, things had a basic similarity forced upon them. Add to that the fact that, as a new medium, the artistic talent in even the most popular games varied widely; many never even had formal training (not saying that’s good or bad; just pointing it out). That’s all changed. And I’m thoroughly enjoying what I see … which includes screenshots from Irrational Games forthcoming effort, “BioShock”. It’s not exactly steampunk, but it has that quality to it. Check out more images over on Next Level Gaming (Link).

One thought on “BioShockPunk Aesthetics

  1. Given the chronology, I’m almost tempted to call this “bathyspunk”! It’s inspirational–lurve those glowy lights.
