I posted about this a few weeks ago and now it’s out! Nobuo Uematsu’s e-book Blik-0 1946 is now out in iTunes and Amazon for the Kindle (sans the soundtrack).
There are 4 iTunes packages for Blik-0 1946:
- iPad version for $9.99
- iPhone version (not released yet)
- iPad / iPhone versions in Japanese (not released yet)
- Soundtrack only version
Blik-0 1946 is a story about a robot named “Blik-0,” created by a reputable artificial intelligence scientist, Dr. Mabuse. Blik-0 is a robot built with functions that let him emulate the human heart and brain. As he experiences life the way humans do, he starts to struggle with feelings and emotions like sadness, heartache, anger, and love.
There are three original tracks included in the iPad version composed by Uematsu entitled “Blik-0 1946”, “Ah, But Why?” and “So Close”. The e-book is also enriched by illustrations made by Hiroki Ogawa who designed and illustrated the EARTHBOUND PAPAS’ official character, which is featured on the jacket of the band’s début album, Octave Theory.
You can find out more at the Blik-0 1946 official Facebook page.
Blik-0 1946 is only available on the US iTunes store so you will not be able to find it on the Asian / Philippine store. If you have a US iTunes account though and some spare credits lying around, be sure not to miss it.
