Every so often, a game or movie comes along that defines where future perceptions of the genre will go. Pixellica has showcased, for example, interpretations of Blade Runner-esque environments as seen through the eyes of various artists. Today, we offer gaming environments that we really, really wish would make it to the Big Time. Gaming environments that make you drop the controller and shout “I’m there!”
Ever since the dystopian vision was created in 1982 by Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner”, the way conceptual artists see the future has changed. From Blade Runner to Brazil, The Fifth Element to Minority Report (heck, even Mystery Men), conceptual artists have portrayed the future as a place of ginormous cities, flying cars and grungy, rainy street life. Pixellica presents an excellent sampling of dystopian concepts to stir the muse.
