No, you're not having some sort of hallucination, that's a hummingbird with a skull and somewhere in there amongst the insects, there's also a caffeine-hungry Statue Of Liberty, an eagle and a helicopter. This fantastical work of art is what the creative team at gaming kingpin Rockstar has created for our 20th Anniversary Take Cover Project.
When you look at their impressive body of work, Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne and LA Noire (coming in May), we suspected the results weren't going to be straightforward. This, however, was beyond what we hoped for. As Rockstar explain: “Our cover art, designed to reflect the decay that exists alongside all things beautiful, definitely warrants close inspection - not only is it a little creepier than it appears at first glance, but you might see a few things you recognize from our games across the years.”
