Mega64 is a sketch comedy group active in the videogame industry. They have worked with Ubisoft, GameTap, E3, the Game Developers Conference (GDC), Spike TV’s Videogame Awards, and guest stars in their productions include notables such as Hideo Kojima, Shigeru Miyamoto, Gabe Newell, and Brandon DiCamillo of Jackass fame. Their weekly podcast is watched by thousands of fans live and later released for download to an even larger audience.
These portraits decorated their "cabin in the woods" podcast set and are sold in their online store and at conventions as individual posters. The concept was to create portraits of the cast that resembled those found in Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion. They were painted from scratch in Photoshop in under 24 hours.
The illustration on the left of the classic Mega64 campground podcast set was orginally made for a class assignment but caught their attention as potential merchandise. They asked if they could offer it as a poster and so began a fantastic journey of exciting projects and cool friends! More recently they commissioned a sequel to the original podcast poster featuring their new basement arcade set.
This is the promotional poster version of cover artwork created for a DVD case. The DVD was a compilation of miscellaneous Mega64 works that were tied together with a time travel plot line. The cover was created to parody the iconic Back to the Future series.
