The Aesthetic Beauty of Rising Sun

The art and components in a game have a big impact on how the overall product is perceived. They help to tell the story. Good art can transform an abstract into a game rich with theme, featuring characters full of life and their own compelling backstories. A single image or miniature figure can add a ton of drama, emotion, and narrative information to a board game.  

Rising Sun is a very personal project for Eric M. Lang. It’s the second in a series of games inspired from the legends and mythologies that thrilled him as a kid. The Viking epic Blood Rage was a remarkable example of how a game can embody the source material in theme, mechanics, and especially art and components. It was this same attention to aesthetic that CMON hoped to recreate by reuniting the same creative team for Rising Sun.
