looks great! I'm not usually interested in soundtracks to games or movies, but because I've become such a Banner Saga fanboy, I'm definitely interested to see what's in store! The artwork looks awesome!

The art style for this reminds me of some of J.R.R. Tolkien's watercolor illustrations for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I love it!

So beautiful! :) Did Arnie make this or not? There's the distinctive tall branch-less trees, the snow and the banners, but we haven't seen a lot of watercolor-like drawings by Arnie, have we?

EDIT: OK, twitter post clarified this. It's Arnie ;)

PS, about Symbolism -- It's interesting to note how the caravan passes from light/day, to shadows/twilight and finally into darkness/starry-night... So, by the end of the game, probably this mystery of the stopped-sun is resolved? :rolleyes:

Why does it somehow remind me of Hayao Miyazaki's style :)

How does the pre order on steam work with the soundtrack? because according to the steam pre-order page it says something about getting three exclusive tracks, are the people who pre-ordered it, getting only those three tracks and then we have to go get the Banner Saga soundtrack separately or are we getting the soundtrack as well? this is just to clarify

Holy cow - that preview is awesome. I'm so hyped for the soundtrack now. Didn't know there would be vocals for portions. String at the end nails it soooooooo goooooooood.
