New From Josan Gonzalez: ‘The Future Is Now: Nightfall’ [16 Preview Images]

The Future Is Now: Nightfall by Josan Gonzalez

Josan Gonzalez (sometimes known as Deathburger), the artist who wowed us a few years ago with The Future Is Now, is back with a Kickstarter campaign for another chapter, The Future Is Now: Nightfall.

“The night falls in Robo-City Prime. You’ve just received a message from Max Overload, he needs your help.”

Here’s a video teaser:

There’s a lot going on with this Kickstarter campaign — it gets meta, where as a backer you become part of a sub-story — and we can’t do it justice here. If you like Josan’s work, check out the Kickstarter page and get involved if you so desire. We’re inside the final 48 hours, but the good news is the project has blown past its funding minimum and is now approaching its seventh stretch goal. For those unfamiliar with Josan’s ragged, glorious, hyper-detailed futurism, here are a bunch of preview images:
