UDON-PaxEast2014-Boothnumber

PAX East 2014 is almost upon us and UDON Entertainment is thrilled to be exhibiting at the show! PAX East takes place this weekend, April 11-13 in Boston, Massachusetts, and it's always a fantastic show for video game and pop culture fans. UDON will be set up in Booth #1097, near the fine folks of Midnight City and Big Fish Games! Check out the map below for more details!

UDON artists Long Vo and Edwin Huang will be at the booth, signing books and doing commission sketches! Long Vo is a long-time member of the UDON crew, and his work can be found in pretty much every Street Fighter comic and graphic novel! Edwin Huang is best known as the artist of Skullkickers with Jim Zub, and his UDON comics debut is in Super Street Fighter Volume 1, with more work on the way!

UDON will also have almost every in-print art book on hand at the show, including recent releases like The Eyes of Bayonetta, Dragon's Dogma Official Design Works, Ys: The Art Book, and dozens more! We'll also have a selection of convention exclusive dust jackets and hard covers, including the Comic-Con Reversible Dust Jackets Seen above!

Maybe the MOST exciting thing for Mega Man fans though, is that we'll have a VERY limited number of MM25: Mega Man & Mega Man X Official Complete Works in both regular and limited editions! As always, stop by early in the show for the greatest selection of titles, before we sell out (and we basically sell out of everything every year...)!!

One dark fantasy game. 80 original visions.

SUBSTRATA: by UdonEntertainment

What happens when over 80 creators from the world’s top video game studios join forces to create the ultimate dark fantasy game? The answer is SUBSTRATA, a brilliant new art book collecting designs for the heroes, enemies, and landscapes of this hypothetical new game world…

SUBSTRATA is the brainchild of illustrator Paul Richards, who conceived of the project as a way to reunite his fellow artists from Vigil Games, makers of the Darksiders franchise. Together, they rallied a global community of artists and the result is a breathtaking tome, featuring a who’s-who of top tier talent from across the gaming industry. SUBSTRATA is a true passion-project, where artists were encouraged to forsake conventions, inhibitions, and technological limitations, to create something never seen before.

“SUBSTRATA gave us all a chance to conceive and execute our own ideas in our own voices,” said Paul Richards, Project Curator. “This is a mighty win for artists devoted to making exciting, original game content for its own sake. In that spirit, we’re proud to say all proceeds from the book will go to the charity organization Gamers For Good. Please visit them at www.gamersforgood.com”

The artists who have lent their passion to SUBSTRATA have worked on some of the top-rated AAA games in the industry. Check out this amazing list of games which have featured artwork by SUBSTRATA contributors:

Allods Online – Assassins Creed IV – Darksiders I & II - DayZ - Destiny – Diablo 3 – Donkey Kong Country Returns: Tropical Freeze – Doom 4 – DotA 2 -  EVE Online - Evolve - Firefall – Gears of War – Guild Wars 2 – Halo 4 - Hearthstone - Hunted – League of Legends – Left For Dead 2 - Overlord – Overlord 2 – Portal 2 - Rift - Runescape – Saints Row - SMITE – Star Citizen – Starcraft 2 – Uncharted 3 - Wildstar – World of Warcraft
(All titles TM & © their respective owners.)

Gamers, artists, and up-and-coming developers alike, this is your chance to see a world created from the ground up, and no fan of video game artwork should miss this unique, uncensored peek at a game project from the moment of its conception.

SUBSTRATA is now available for pre-order through comic book stores, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and wherever great books are sold. Look for it everywhere this spring!

Hey folks! We're thrilled to announce that UDON will be handling the layout and design for all versions of the English artbook/strategy guide for Mighty No.9, the new game from Keiji Inafune and Comcept!

While we can't share too many details at present, we can say that we've been tossing around a lot of great ideas for the book, and we're really excited to be working with Keiji Inafune and the whole team. Mighty No.9 looks like it's going to be a great game, with wonderful art design! It's going to make a heck of a book, and you can get your copy (either digital, softcover, or hardcover) by supporting the Mighty No.9 Kickstarter before it ends on Tuesday!

For more on Mighty No.9, check out The Mighty No. 9 Kickstarter Page!.


For now, we'll leave you with this awesome sketch by UDON''s Chamba, created last month at PAX!
