Runaway 2 - "Collector's Edition" (Spain)

Postby Wesker » Wed Jun 20, 2007 10:55 pm

Just in case you don't know, there's some sort of "Collector's Edition" of Runaway 2 that has just been released in Spain.

Image

This edition includes:

-A brand-new cover, drawed by Spanish illustrator "Kovec".

Image

-A second DVD featuring the first game, Runaway: A Road Adventure.

-A completely new full-color manual.

-A new interactive system of tips & tricks integrated in both a tips booklet and the game, developed by Pendulo exclusively for this edition.

-An exclusive art booklet with sketches and artworks of Runaway 2, and also the first sketches of the future Runaway 3 (!!).


And all for the cost of just 20 €!

This is an exclusive deal of FX Interactive with Pendulo Studios, so it will be only available for those countries where FX Interactive ships its products.

I'm giving you first-hand images about this edition, including the art booklet, and some descriptions and translations:

Image

The brand-new cover, drawed by Spanish illustrator "Kovec". You can see the 19'95€ price in the sticker.

Image

The back, featuring "comic-style" images.

Image

Two DVD with both Runaway 2 and the first Runaway.

Image

Manual, tip-system reference and artwork booklet.

Image

Character profile inside the manual, everything at full color. You can also see another reference to the Joshua tip-system in the right.

Image

The cover of the small tip-system reference, once again featuring "comic-style" images.

Image

Inside the tip-system reference, you can see how does the new tip-system works in the game, fully integrated with new dialogue speech and funny cutscenes of Joshua.

Joshua basically tells us that he is in a future dimension where Brian has already succeeded in rescuing Gina, and so he is able to help you telepathically in order to keep the balance and preventing a time paradox.

He is always at your service, in a pretty comical way, giving you tips in your current position. The new way of accesing this mode is by an icon between the inventory and the options icon.

Image

The art booklet, front cover.

Image

A message from the developers:

"The development of Runaway 2 has supposed a real challenge for Pendulo Studios. Screenwriters, programmers, drawers, illustrators... Thanks to the efforts of all, we have succeeded in turning an original idea into a whole adventure. In this booklet, we show you a selection of images that represent the creative process of Runaway 2, since the first sketches to the final result. Behind them there are hundreds of working hours, thousands of cups of coffee, and mostly, tons of illusion. We expect you to prove if the effort was worth it."

Image

"Study of lightning of Brian, Gina and Otto heading for the hydroplane, whose inspiration comes from an aeroplane from the Second World War known as the "Cathaline"."

Image

"Transition between pencil drawing sketch, line drawing and full color illustration of Brian inside the hydroplane, inspiration coming from the planes of the forties and adapted creatively to the game demands."

Image

"Study of lighting of Tarantula in the ruins of the Temple of Tiki. An useful guide to the illustrators when applicating color above the final image."

Image

"Line drawing of the library from the Archives of the Indies, in Sevilla. Also included the pencil drawing sketch and the final image. Sometimes, the preliminar sketches only require a touch of color to develop into a full finished product."

Image

"Transition between study of lightning by pencil drawing and full color final illustration of the camerine of Captain Malantunez".

Image

Now comes a progression of paper vegetal transparencies.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

"From sketches with real epoch mobiliary, the final illustration takes us magically to the XVII century. In paper vegetal transparencies, line drawings."

Image

"Study of lightning of Brian deep in the seas of Caribbean. An example of how a sketch from pre-production phase develops into a nice background."

Image

"Design of the mask of the prow of Orion galleon, based upon historical ships. 1. Preliminar sketch. 2. Study of characters placed on background sketch. 3. Study of lightning. 4. Final image."

Image

"Study of lightning of Brian and Joshua on their way to Cicely. What begins as a simple sketch, is cleaned in the lighted table. From there, diffumination is applied and effects of bright and shadow are added."

Image

"Transition between line drawing, pencil study of lightning and full color final illustration of the area of refuge in Alaska. There is a challenge into drawing a perspective that allows integration of moving characters."

And here finally comes:

Image

"Design of characters and preliminar sketches for Runaway 3. With these images, we can only wonder where the next adventure of Brian and Gina is going to take place..."

Image

Well, to me, these look like some kind of Japanese-themed guys. An affair with the Yakuza in Japan, maybe?

Image

Back of the ark booklet, with a nice drawing of the Pendulo logo.
