Where does the time go?!  

A busy few months have seen us spend several hours across multiple sessions talking with Lorne Lanning, and undertaking a large portion of the book planning including overarching structure, pagination, and crafting the final design layout.  

To that end, we’re very pleased to be able to share a couple of work-in-progress shots with you here!  


These are not finalised images, and we’re using placeholder text in these examples to allow us maximum freedom in layout and spacing, but you can see how they’re continuing the feel presented in the images used in the Kickstarter campaign.  

We’re also excited to share news that the brand new map of Oddworld is being worked on right now. This is being designed as a direct result of the production of this book and the Stretch Goal that you all helped reach, and will form a double fold-out page spread in the finished book.  


We’ve been discussing various elements of the game collection with Oddworld Inhabitants and we’re excited with how that’s coming along, the design elements being worked on there are the New Employee Handbook, and the art cards.  

Do remember that all shipping info, benefactor name preferences and other details can be managed via CrowdOx, and pre-orders will continue into 2019, so if you know anyone who missed out on the Kickstarter campaign consider pointing them in that direction.  

For anyone who has pinged us a message or question recently, we’ll get to answer those early in the new year and we’ll be in touch again with a new update later in January.  

That update will have more on the design progress as well as a broad outline on timings and some info on shipping.  

Until then have a wonderful Christmas and fantastic New Year celebrations! Have a SoulStorm Brew for us!
