The Pretty Paintings Of PS3 Artist's "Ico-Inspired" ProjectS

Naughty Dog (Uncharted) artist Eytan Zana is working with thatgamecompany's (Flower, Journey) Matt Nava on something new. Something they're calling the "Ico Project".

You can see some of the haunting art over on Zana's blog, and yeah, it's very reminiscent of the landscapes found in Team Ico's classic 2001 platformer for the PS2.

Before you get carried away, this isn't some official Ico project. Hell, it's not even an official game; it may just be an artistic collaboration between two guys who just really dig Ico, and will result in nothing more than some pretty paintings.

But it sure looks nice! Suitably desolate, suitably haunted. Here's hoping it's all for some upcoming Sony title (both devs being PS3 specialists), but even if it's not, here's hoping we get more gorgeous art to look at, and pretend it's from a new Ico game. Or even Last Guardian, since it's been so long since we saw anything on that!
