0 A.d. Soundtrack Album Art

7 posts in this topic

Check out the new album artwork for the 0 A.D. soundtrack:

post-17-0-00602500-1308297837_thumb.png

The scene is set in a Greek theater. It contains some weapons and armor (a helmet, a sword, a spear, a shield, a fasces and an arrow), some musical instruments (a lyre and two trumpets), a theatrical mask and an amphora. (An amphora is a ceramic container used in ancient times for transporting and storing wine, oil, grains and other commodities.)

Thus, it represents some major themes in the game (antiquity, nation-building and warfare) and contains a reference to music and the arts. We chose to represent 0 A.D. in a theater in self-conscious irony, as if to say, "We're just acting out war, and setting it to this music".

For now, the album art will be used on the 0 A.D. Bandcamp page to help make the soundtrack look cooler. The soundtrack itself is released under cc-by-sa and will always be packaged with the game free of charge.

Thanks to 0 A.D. contributor Gordon Napier (dashinvaine) for this work of art.

Great cover, but tbh, the iron helmet looks a bit out of place. The rest of the cover has this brown-bronze theme to which the helmet is a very sharp contrast. Maybe a nice Corinthian Helmet would fit in better with the rest.

I like the contrast, but different strokes for different folks.

I guess.:)

The helmet isn't Greek, though, like you say in the description.

The helmet looks like an Imperial Gallic 'G' with Centurion transverse crest. :)
