And yes, I'm aware of how crazy this is <3
How gorgeous is all that artwork T_____T You know when you have those dreams growing up were you discover bits of hidden art in the game and then wake up and raegface when you realise it was just a dream. This is real, lol.

Now this is a wonderful little surprise to come home to. I really love the architecture they gave to Twin Seeds, something about it just really draws me in.

Those are simply amazing! I am completely stunned by seeing these beautiful works of art being so clear and vibrant!

I love how elaborate Claris' and Elliot's rooms are, even having both day and night drawings :D I don't know why but from the small image I always thought that Claris' room was some kind of tossed out museum idea 0.0 .....Rich chick room of the future I guess....

And I must say that while Naoto Ohshima brought out much inspiration in all of us I'm sure, you TRiPPY are quite the inspiration yourself! Showing us that the horrid "You should never meet your hero" saying isn't always true and becoming living proof that hard work and passion in anything can really freaking pay off.....In totally awesome and amazing concept art :D
Thank you so much for posting all of this ^_^

I call that an EPIC WIN, or a HUGE SUCCESS!
Thank you so much ‘shima-san, and thank you TRiPPY, we wouldn't got those precious artworks without you! I'm so proud to be a fan of NiGHTS =)

Yeh, it's been crazy to see TRiPPY and, ya know, NAOTO OHSHIMA talking to each other for the last few weeks, lol! XD I couldn't believe how passionate this guy was about our fanbase, he really did appreciate us all still hanging around after 15 years.

When i met Naka and Iizuka they had a similar kind of passion for our dedication, hence why they wanted to meet us. But of course, it being an interview you need to have a level of professionalism about you, so while they were very pleased to see us and talk about NiGHTS it was because of the nature of the meeting it couldn't be as, shall we say, 'geeky' as it could have been, lol. Though we did manage to crack a few smiles on Naka's face, especially after showing him that old NiGHTS story book from 1996.

But with Ohshima? He was heart-felt from the moment he said 'hello!' XD I think he saw one of TRiPPY's NiGHTS pictures in her FaceBook gallery and it prompted him to contact her.

I had waited years to see NiGHTS concept art. One of the things i love the most is seeing how a game is formed visually with designs and sketches. You see the original ideas and visions then see how they processed and became what you cherish today. It's like a form of evolution. I'm a big Phantasy Star Online fan so i spent crazy cash getting the Japanese artbook to see how that game took form ...but for NiGHTS into Dreams there wasn't much, no artbooks or anything. We would scramble for art online. I seriously never imagined Ohshima himself would turn up and go "Hey, you looking for this?" *throws*

It truly has been one amazing experience, i can not thank Ohshima-san enough for sending us this. He has turned out to be as cool and passionate as i have imagined him to be all these years.

How incredible! It's so much fun seeing the evolution of NiGHTS into how we know him today. I particularly love this:

Wow there is some seriously cool stuff in there! :) A bunch of concept art that I have never seen before and the detail is amazing. It's great to see the love and appreciation from the creators 15 years later. NiGHTS is such an amazing character.

Wow, that's amazing. I like the designs of the kid's rooms. Also, something really strange; Elliot's name is spelled eriot in the file name.

Many, many, many thanks to Mr. Ohshima for what he's given us, both now and in the past. These past few years have been an absolutely wonderful time for NiGHTS fans and this has only made it even better. It's one thing to have a crazy awesome fanbase but it's something special to have the big names actually have a lot of respect for that crazy awesome fanbase.

So I wake up, cheer that I'm well again, check my inbox and see the words "concept art" in the headline from NiDcom. Cue wide-eyes.

O_O

This is just so fricking amazing! Awesome art of locations, people, Pians, nightmarens, and more. *_* There's even a NiGHTS that would give you nightmares and a near streaking Reala (oh come on, at least one person thought of something similar).

I just love this. ^_^ :D

TRiPPY, congratulations on finally thanking Naoto Ohshima IN PERSON for such a wonderful game. It's so cool that you got to be friends with him too. ^_^

I have no more words that I can coherently form. O_O

OH MY GOSH THAT NiGHTS CONCEPT IS QUITE LITERALLY A ONE HORNED FLYING PURPLE PEOPLE EATER!!

Fix'd.


*back to being utterly speechless*
