While some players may be too busy struggling to survive to appreciate the design work that went into building the game, this book provides contains over 200 pages which looks at the chilling monsters, locations, characters and monsters.
Inside you’ll find a full lineup of character, world, enemy, weapon, and other equipment artwork, rough designs, behind-the-scenes concept visuals, and an interview with the game’s creators.
