A collection of concept art from popular video games created at Massachusetts game development companies.
Behind the Game is the first exhibition that brings together concept art being created at many of Massachusetts' most prominent video game developers. Concept art is a form of illustration used to make ideas visual. In video game production, it serves as a bridge between the game's design and final, in-game graphics. While it serves this purpose, a game concept art piece can transcend its production role and is appreciated for its own merits: technique, idea, and artistry. Behind the Game presents this sometimes invisible art to a wider audience beyond developers and hardcore gamers.
