Jason from Talon Strikes Studios sent me a message on Twitter a few days ago letting me know that he was working on some artwork for the game and asking if he could have some info. I shared what he needed with him, and then two days later, he said, “It would help to speak with you about it,” and gave me his phone number. So, I called him, we had a great chat, and he told me that he’s working on a custom box for the game. Seems he found something in an antique store that just screamed “Gothic Doctor!!!” to him.
“Oh,” he said, “and I have a few vials. It might be cool to put them in, right?” Sure.
Then I got some pictures of the process, and I thought, “Wow. This is really, really cool.”
And then I saw the final product. Rather than tell you my reaction, I’ll just show you the pictures and you can react yourselves…
Here’s a book that’s in the case.
Here are a few shots of the inside of the case.
Here’s the inside of the case with the lights out. Because the light inside works. There. Is. A. Working. Light. Inside. The. Case.
And lastly, here are a few close ups of the inside of the case.
Really amazing work from a really great craftsman! Great work on the case, Jason! Can’t wait to see what you do next – but if word gets out, designers are going to want a custom case for their games, too!
For those of you who want to hear more from Jason, he’s on Twitter as @TalonStrikes and on the web at TalonStrikes.com.
That is just….CRAZY cool. I LOVE it. The detail is amazing! I WANT ONE.
Thank you Amber, that is very kind of you. I was able to really combine some great elements into the design of the case.
Thank you for the kind words. I had a blast working on the case. It is a one of a kind. If any of your readers have any interest in work such as this I would be more than happy to help them out!
You heard it here first, folks! He’s for hire!!
