About this deal

You see, I had found some time ago, the digital copy of ' "' Bloodborne Official Artworks", all in image format (which I also converted to PDF so you can read if you like, just a small bonus honestly), and also the first Bloodborne Collector's Edition Guide (Admittedly, this one has a much lower resolution, but it's good nonetheless). As someone who finished Bloodborne for the first time recently, this book served a great post-game literary analysis and exploration on the stories, atmosphere, and history of not just Yharnam, but the entire civilisation (and perhaps cosmos?) as a whole. In the realm of fan theory and the investigative efforts and research required for its creation, the Paleblood Hunt is second to none. As someone who loves content like this (I was a huge fan of the Mass Effect Indoctrination Theory), I applaud Redgrave very much for his work in this masterpiece of a game. Bloodborne captivated me because it encompassed all the things I either love seeing in movies, reading about in books or as my points of interest in general (Lovecraftian and Gothic horror elements, Gothic architecture and Victorian setting etc.). Old architecture always sparked my interest so I spent half of my gaming time simply admiring the work that went into designing the game's Victorian architecture, streets, benches, castles and even streetlamps (I'll get one of those for my house). So I looked into it more and I was right, and this isn't a new issue. From when the document had originally dropped, to when it was revised, and long after, people have disagreed with a large part of the document, and for good reason.

The book clearly divides between fact and personal conjecture, and it is interesting to see how the puzzle pieces (from item descriptions, forgotten notes, NPC details) fit together to form a cohesive narrative. FromSoftware, Inc. is a Japanese video game development company founded in November 1986. The company is known primarily outside Japan for being the developers of the Armored Core and Souls series, as well as Bloodborne.

I'd consider this an integral companion piece to Bloodborne, it completely enriches the whole experience, speaking with a very confident yet playful voice. Excellent stuff. This is a fan-based exploration of the lore in Bloodborne (a video game for PlayStation 4). Even more than Dark Souls, Bloodborne is almost never explicit about anything and understanding what's going on in the game world is a matter of meticulous reading of item descriptions, paying attention to the architecture, enemy placement and chatting to the occasional NPCs.

I saw The Paleblood Hunt being recommended to people who finished the game and wanted to understand it more and I was not disappointed. It is a combination of an encyclopedia and speculative world-building. Each chapter presents the readers with "solid facts" -- pieces of dialogue or other knowledge that's explicitly in the game. And follows up with the author's interpretation of said facts, building a picture of what happened, who these beings were and why they did what they did. Der Kauf zu diesem Artbook rät eigentlich nur der Sammlertrieb und die Liebe zum Spiel selbst. Merkwürdigerweise werden in Spielen für die neuen Konsolen kaum noch freischaltbare Bonis wie Artworks angeboten, obwohl sich viele Gamer für Game Art interessieren. Da es nur wenige Artworks zu Bloodborne im Netz gibt, lohnt sich die Anschaffung für die jenigen, die mehr davon sehen wollen. Ich werde in der nächsten Zeit öfters hinein schauen und wahrscheinlich wird es mich dazu animieren, wieder Bloodborne zu spielen. An intriguing read for those who have finished the game with many unanswered questions and an avid fascination with the worldbuilding and lore. I think this is one of the books about Bloodborne I've enjoyed the most, probably because it focuses solely on the lore, which in itself is absolutely fascinating. It was really well organized and the structure of every chapter, starting with facts and then (possible) interpretation was perfect. I loved the whole parallel with blood composition, lymphocytes and pathogens at the end, that was new for me, in spite of the fact I've already read quite a lot about the game. When it comes to the concepts themselves, never have I seen a more faithful transition from concept to the final product with every little detail, every tiny piece of clothing or a gravestone, everything you remember from the game is there in the concepts, perfectly transitioning from art to video game.I love this game, and I love it's visual style. Gothic Victorian exaggerations that wouldn't be out of place in a Dracula anime; connections between werewolves, lunar cycle, blood, and birth; and a Lovecraftian twist that I actually like more than his actual stories. Unfortunately, this document is only aimed at people who have finished (all three endings of) the game.
