We had the opportunity to do something really interesting with our most recent Penny Arcade Presents project. We actually got to sit down with the guys over at Gearbox and come up with something that tied in with the game in a really cool way. One of the characters you’ll meet in the game is a guy by the name of Johnny Rivas. You’ll find out when you play BIA that he’s actually an artist and he keeps a sketchbook/ journal with him all the time. What we did is actually create that sketchbook and you can get a copy of it if you order the bonus edition. It’s eight pages and contains journal entries as well as sketches all done from the point of view of Johnny Rivas. Some of the entries cover events you’ll see in the game and others give you insights into events that occur outside your game experience.
Anyway, we’re super proud of it and it’s exciting for us that it’s actually being printed and given out alongside the game. I really want to thank Gearbox for letting us create something that fits in so tightly with their game.
