Prince of Penny Arcade

For several years now, Penny Arcade has proven to be the most monomaniac web comic about videogames around.  Creators Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins, better known as Gabe and Tycho, have now teamed up with the Ubisoft design team in Montreal to create an online only storybook featuring the main characters from the upcoming Prince of Persia game.

Twice a week a new page is added to this prequel story, which is supposed to round up on december 3, when the game will be launched.  In an exclusive deal with Amazon, a high definition version of the storybook will be delivered with any copy of the game online.

The artwork that in the book (which is very explicitly not a comic) is quite a step away from the admittedly limited vocabulary that is used in PA.  In fact, it reminded me more of Scott Morse’s storyboards.  Which is a good thing.

    Aim at the sun. Would likely not reach it, but you will fly higher than if you never aimed. I guess it’s hard to deny such a thinking, right?

That's my opinion. But do leave yours:
