One of the things that has resonated with Final Fantasy fans is the sound composition. Almost every single game to date has been done by Nobuo Uematsu and he is releasing a new eBook this summer.
The new eBook will have interactive features and be primarily driven by audio. It tells a story of a robot named “Blik-0,” created by a reputable artificial intelligence scientist, Dr. Mabuse. As Blik-0 experiences the life with humans, he starts to struggle with feelings and emotions. This moving and inspirational story is accompanied by Nobuo Uematsu’ 3 original music scores and Hiroki Ogawa’s gentle and warm illustrations to enhance reader’s experience!
The eBook will be published by acttil, a fairly new publisher comprised of some former NIS America staff. Blik-0 1946 (pronounced “Buliko”) will be available for iBooks via the iTunes Store and Kindle. The Kindle version won’t include the music files, but the iTunes Store version will come with all three of Uematsu’s tracks.
