Blatant theft. I hope Olly leans on them about it, pronto. Just ridiculous.

It tis a blatent rip off...but probably not much he can do.
It's not an exact copy and he doesn't own the right to the property.

Seems certain 'artists' are as starved of Olly's work as they are their own creativity and ethics.

Zero surprise though.

Firewatch, the game.

Dude seems happy making video games now and can't blame the guy for doing what he loves. Hopefully get some
Prints after the game is released.

I could easily see him want to do something Comics related after the game comes out :)

Well he has to have something at Mondo-Con. I don't think he'd go empty handed or just Firewatch stuff.

It's like that time Michael Jordan left the NBA for two years to play baseball and said he wouldn't come back.

I have most of my 5x5's in floating glass. Looks great, and relatively inexpensive. You could do a bunch of individuals and grid them, or a large one and have them all in the same frame.

Not really. Given the opportunity to keep doing posters of other people's properties, restrictions and all, or to succeed in creating your own content...I'll take the wild guess that there are plenty of artists who dream about accomplishing the latter. Besides, he's been able to scratch that itch pretty easily with 5x5s and gifts for family/friends...
