Lucasarts really needs to do an "Art of" book, similar to what Pixar has done with their movies. I would love to see prints of Grim Fandango concept art and quality anti-aliased final renders. I'm sure there are people who would pay more for the book than the game itself costs right now - I know I would!

I doubt we'd ever see this though. A far more viable alternative would be a "Best of Lucasarts" art book. Who wouldn't love to see original concept art from the first Monkey Island games, Full Throttle, Sam & Max ... with a healthy dose Grim Fandango's aztec and art deco-inspired visuals. Everything except Star Wars, of course.

They did put out a "best of" soundtrack, so there's always hope ... maybe after Freelance Police comes out.

That would be great, though I am not very familiar with other LucasArts games.

Yeah, a book like that would be amazing... A collectors item or something... Really, really, really cool...

I love LucasArts... (except from Star Wars)

Btw.. You can also find concept art @ www.billtiller.com

Thanks a mint, Jannar, I really needed those links :D

Is this (http://www.lucasarts.com/products/grim/grim_concept_art.htm) the only Grim Fandango concept art webpage?

You mean apart from ours (http://www.grimfandango.net/index.php?section=gallery&page=concept)? Probably.

Speaking of which, I have those bonewagon renders lying around here in need of adding to the site. I'll sort that out soon for you angels.

Most of those concept art thingers are mirrored on Mixnmojo too (on Grim Fandango's game database info page), in case you hate our guts website.
