Totilo's story yesterday on what might be a Command & Conquer action game got me thinking about Tiberium, the promising yet ultimately ill-fated shooter EA once had planned for the strategy universe.
While the game was cancelled because it was shaping up to be a bit rubbish, that certainly had little to do with Tiberium's art, which portrayed a game that seemed to owe as much to Republic Commando as it did Command & Conquer.
These pieces are all the product of artist Steve Burg, who in addition to working with EA has also done stuff for film and television as well.
Today though, we're just looking at this great Tiberium art, which leaves us with just a tease of the Command & Conquer game that could have been.
Wow, this thing had some pretty interesting settings — cities, wastelands, spaceports (presumably), factories, crashsites, abandoned settlements.. the list goes on. Add a few more sunny spots (lots of rain in these pics) and you've got yourself the makings of something cool.
Why was this thing rubbish, again? Don't really remember.
