Since we’ve got Bioshock in November’s TANK Loot Gaming Crate, it seemed fitting to dive back in some of my favorites. I got wistfully thoughtful on the art and music that went into Infinite’s overall tone and perfection.
Truly, Bioshock Infinite was a complete experience for me because such a beautiful setting provided such painful secrets. We found a hero in Booker but a heroine in Elizabeth. The settings felt so very real for the large boom of politics in the Twenties. If we could’ve built machines and monsters with steam and grease, I can’t be so sure we wouldn’t have been closer and more akin to what Columbia was in Infinite.
I found the concept art of Ben Lo, a concept artist currently with Bioware but once-upon-a-time he worked on Bioshock Infinite for Irrational Games. I was too blown away to simply not share.
While the first two Bioshock games hold a very special place in my heart, Bioshock Infinite’s depth of color and sound had me completely enraptured. No, that pun was not intended. Between the artwork that Ben Lo provided and the team at Irrational Games brought to life and the clever usage of current era music — there was no way I was going to not latch onto Infinite.
These musical covers, quite a few performed by Scott Bradlee of Postmodern Jukebox fame, span decades but all tangled up and harmonized in a timeline that befits Bioshock Infinite. Here are just a few that bring the goosebumps.
