Dark Horse just released The Art of Deathloop, a hardcover art book documenting the creation and production of Arkane Studio‘s 60’s-inspired, time looping first-person shooter video game. A pair of retro-styled anaglyphic 3D glasses is included with every copy, so readers can experience select 3D imagery found inside the book. The 2021 title was one of the most critically acclaimed games of the year and the winner of many Game of the Year awards, so it’s nice to see it receive deluxe art book treatment. Check out Dark Horse‘s press release for the art book below.
