The Art of Blizzard

Blizzard Entertainment announced that a comprehensive, behind the scenes look into one of the largest and most respected gaming companies in the world is on the way. Blizzard Entertainment has spent the last two decades making games and creating never-before seen worlds. To say they have a popular following would be modest, although it didn‘t start out that way. However, when World of Warcraft was released on November 23, 2004 gamers everywhere were willing to sacrifice time, relationships, and just about anything else for the innovative gameplay. The Art of Blizzard will offer an exclusive tour into the creative process which helped to define such games. Featuring a large collection of artwork, readers will get an insider’s look into the philosophies and concepts that shaped the company into what it is today.

Just like many other game developers before them, Blizzard Entertainment had humble beginnings. When three guys just out of UCLA decided to start the company their goal was simply to make cool games and have fun doing it. Now, just over twenty years later, the company has spread out with offices all over the world, with millions of fans enjoying the unique gameplay in a variety of languages. Besides the Warcraft titles, Blizzards games include the very popular Starcraft, and Diablo series.

Featuring about 800 pieces of conceptual artwork, paintings, and sketches, The Art of Blizzard will explore the company’s genesis and show audiences just how these games are made from their conceptual beginnings. The book will also feature a never before seen look at unpublished projects, as well as serving as an ideal companion to World of Warcraft, Diablo III, and Starcraft II. Commentary on the artwork is provided by Blizzard Entertainment’s Nick Carpenter, Sam Didier, and Chris Metzen. All played major roles in developing Blizzard’s expansive gaming universe. Fans of the online RPG games will most likely have no problem dishing out the money (the retail price is $75, while Amazon has it listed much lower). Even casual gamers and art lovers may want to have a look given the size of the title as this could very well be a great addition to many different types of consumers’ coffee table collections.
