So this will blow some skirts up: in somewhat shocking, but totally awesome and wholeheartedly welcomed news, videogame publisher Acttil announced today that they will be releasing Nobuo Uematsu’s picture e-book entitled Blik-0 1946. The book will not only include prodigious artwork from Hiroki Ogawa, but also come packed with a three-track OST by Uematsu himself that reportedly enhances the viewing experience by rendering readers’ ears dazzled by the sweet, tantalizing sounds of those imaginative overtures we’ve all come to know and love from the Japanese composer.
Blik-0 1946 tells the tale of a robot trying to live its life as a human being. Unlike other machines of its kind, Blik-0 was designed to mimic the way humans function, thus ultimately giving the poor guy a complex we suspect. So aside from melting hearts with its adorable story that’s sure to be both profound and existential, Blik-0 1946 will be released in the iTunes Store sometime in August for a measly $9.99. If you don’t pick this up, you yourself are a robot, and clearly have no conscience or heart.
