Content Notes: Kickstarter Exclusive Art Book for Deep Madness. Includes over 160 images, short stories, and background lore for Deep Madness. Please note: unless otherwise stated paid add ons from the Kickstarter Campaign are not included.
The much-anticipated Art Book. To make a great game, you need to have great art. Without the fantastic artwork from their brilliant team of artists, they might have some interesting mechanics, but that’s about it. The art for Deep Madness is what has given it a (disturbing) life of its own, immersing us in the game and burning the horror and madness it contains right into our retinas. So without further ado, let’s introduce the artists that have brought Deep Madness to life!
Chang Yuan currently lives in Beijing, and has developed a reputation as a renowned concept artist. He has been in the game and movie industry for over 10 years, creating concept art for Wasteland 2, Torment: Tides of Numenera, Holy King, STAR CORE, and more. In Deep Madness, Chang Yuan designed the twisted and abstract images of the monsters, pioneering a unique interpretation of chaos and madness. His work on Deep Madness is very different from what one might consider the norm for concept art – and it is all the more horrific and beautiful for it.

The incredible fantasy- and science fiction-themed work of Stefan Kopiński, a digital illustrator and concept artist, has brought a myriad of fantasy worlds to life. Stefan Kopiński worked for 5 years at Games Workshop’s Production and Design Studios in Nottingham, and since 2005 he’s worked as a freelancer in the video games industry helping game developers bring their amazing ideas to life. He has created stunning artwork for companies like Sega, THQ, Capcom Europe and Focus Home Interactive, to name a few. Stefan helped us create many of our scenarios with his amazing artistic talent.
