We’re happy to announce that the Digital Lore & Art Book, which is part of the Supporter Edition of Battle Brothers, has been finalized and released. If you own it, it will download automatically to the ‘Extras’ folder of your game installation.
The book documents many of the artistic choices and iterations we made during the development, and our reasoning behind it. As such, it is as much a documentary on the visual aspects of the game as it is an art book to flip through. At the same time, you’ll also find additional lore on the game’s factions, written by the game’s writer, Casey Hollingshead.
This book is dedicated to our brothers-in-arms who supported the development of Battle Brothers above and beyond by getting the Supporter Edition. The game wouldn’t be the same without you – thank you from all of us!
The 1.1 Update
Work is also progressing on the 1.1 update to the game. As announced last time, we are are having our post-release vacations this month, so you can expect the update to be finished and go live later in June, which is also when we’ll announce our future plans. See you then!
60 pages! That is awesome. Going to read this at weekends. It’s interesting to read about how you built that great game piece by piece. I’d say more if my English skill was higher (I hate tenses).
I wish you good luck in all your future projects.
Well done with Lore and Art Book. Love this.
Great to see this, hope we’ll see more from your studio!
Some “devs” make less work and soul for whole game then you for this Lore and Art Book. If you need money for “support version” of the next DLC ), you can think that you have already got it from me too!
good to have you back! hope you guys had some great vacation!
Pretty cool, but unfortunately I can’t seem to buy just the art book on its own? The steam page for Battle Brothers let’s you buy the soundtrack as stand-alone DLC, or you can buy a bundle with the game, soundtrack, art book and fangshire helm. But there’s no possibility to buy only the art book, even though it’s listed as its own bit of DLC. Is there a chance you guys could put up the art book for sale on its own? Seeing how I don’t want the fangshire helm at all and I don’t want to buy the soundtrack for now, picking up a 3-item bundle just because I only want 1 item from it seems a little silly.
Keep up the great work though, looking forward to patch 1.1
