This year’s Steam Summer Sale has endedSo say goodbye to all transactions. But say hello to some seemingly crazy art! At the end of the sale, Valve artists were free to share the fake video game key art and covers hidden in Steam’s large digital catalog as part of the sale’s scavenger hunt. Sure, the games are fake, but I really want to play most of them.
The art of these non-existent video games Valve developer Claire Hummel..She has previously worked on games such as Half-life: Alyx When Westworld Awakening VR.. And now, Steam is no longer available for sale and the related time travel events are over. Hummel shares on Twitter All the cool covers she made for different fake games across different genres.
For example, this looks like a fishing game about not being able to catch fish. I play it.
And this is some important art for the game about helping the very important king go to the bathroom. Yeah, I do that too.
According to Hummel, the idea behind the art was to make it look “relatively compelling” to harmonize with thousands of other games on Steam. However, the art and game titles are weird, so you may find something “at first glance a bit weird”.
Various game names and ideas Created by Erik Wolpaw and Jay Pinkerton, A longtime valve lighter. After Hummel gave the fake game name, she went to work to make art for it.
“I tried to match their energies in the final art,” Hummel explained on Twitter. “It’s a lot of fun trying to create plausible and sophisticated logos in different styles / genres.”
This process has led to some wonderfully bizarre, but also very intriguing fake video games.For example, at least Custard Castle Small Court??
On Twitter, Hummel shared that creating all these fictitious video games from now on would be “a lot of work”, but it was still fun to do.
“I hope everyone got the kick from finding each of these as much as we made.”
