Got my copy a couple of weeks back, it's a stunning book. Oh how I wish the Oddworld folks would start producing little animated shorts based in their twisted universe, I mean a full length feature would rock, but I'd settle for some Pixar style 5 minuters.

I have to say I got my copy about a month ago, and I just want to say that this is quite simpley one of the nicest art books I have in my collection. In turn a couple of my friends have had a quick look at it and have rushed back to the old internet to order themselves a copy. So can I just say thank you for such a great book.
Hats off to you all.

Yes, I got my e-mail a few days back too!

It said 1-5 weeks shipping...If I had paid so much extra to get is shipped BEFORE Christmas, I'd feel kinda deprived if all those who pay the normal price have it before the 25th too!

But anyway, I can't wait for it either, especially now OWI had been releasing loads of screenshots and trailers of the game, now the releasedate is only 1,5 months away from us (or actually, away from YOU, because I have to wait 2 more months here in Europe)

I've always loved the characters of oddworld and i think this book looks amazing. I was wondering if the sketches in the book are good for ref images. I've always wanted to try and model one of the characters but couldn't find any good pics. This book looks to have lots.

I second dotTom. Whata world it is! With all these game to movies being made [Doom ? *ahem*] it would be great to see something with more character brought to the table.

It's really cool to see Ballistic move into this kind of venture.

Very Good Book!!

Got my copy yesterday. Beats the hell out of the Art of Halo.

Oddworld Inhabitants have a great artistic style and a wonderful imagination.

Ballistic should be commended on the quality of the book. Simply a gorgeous book.
