Default February, 2010: Rapture

So sticking with the game inspired themes for February, a game sequel is coming out in a couple days that I have been waiting for ever since I finished the first one... one of the coolest games I've played in a long time. Bioshock! I'm sure I'm not alone in here thinking that Bioshock was the highlight of 2007, and I'm crossing my fingers that Bioshock 2 will be just as cool...

So with that said, the February theme is.... Rapture
How you choose to interpret the theme for your work is up to you. Basically anything Bioshock inspired is acceptable.

Good luck!

edit: winners announced!

Nice topic, i think i'll take part in this one.

aseryen, rapture is the name of the underwater city, where the entire game is based.
If you look up the meaning of the word rapture on wikipedia, it means 'a state of elated bliss'. Which in the game the creator of the city tried to create for its citizens in this underwater city.............i think. Look through the making of vids on youtube and also check out the website, especially this page;
http://www.2kgames.com/cultofrapture/downloads-bioshock
If you scroll right down to the bottom there's a downaloadable art book there.

Good luck to everyone taking part.

I played the demo of Bioshock. It was pretty fun, and the style and mood of it was very well done.

So for the competition a Bioshock theme is optional? So I can just create a composition based on the definition of Rapture. I just want to clarify it, since I will be doing something that has nothing to do with Bioshock.

Good luck to those who compete

Nice theme! Yeah, BioShock was without question the game of 2007 (my #2 overall this gen). I even just replayed BioShock again this past weekend to gear up for BioShock 2.

Gonna try (like always) to enter.

'Town'? It's a freaking metropolis, skyscrapers and all. And to anyone who's NOT played the game, I think you will be at a colossal disadvantage because the game is about the city itself. A city you can only really understand by immersing yourself within it.

Do yourself a favor, go play BioShock. Again, I just rebeat it yesterday, but I'm gonna hop back in to check a specific spot for a reference. I think I have my idea.
