The folks at Dead End Thrills are always hard at work, taking insanely high-resolution images, and doing a bunch of other post-processing tricks I don't know anything about. I certainly appreciate their photo albums, though. These images look better than the game you're actually playing (in this instance, Alien: Isolation is their latest muse), but they certainly capture a spirit and display an eye for the artful within the gaming space, similar to what concept art accomplishes at the front end of the game-making process.
Alien: Isolation launched October 7 on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Whatch for our review, coming soon.
