The Banner Saga is a beautifully animated turn-based strategy game created by Stoic Studio. Eyvind Earle, the American master, was the inspiration behind the distinctive art style, with each character painstakingly hand-animated in the style of classic animated films. Recently Kotaku’s Fine Art column declared, “It’s truly some of the most impressive stuff we’ve ever featured on Fine Art, and that’s saying something.” It certainly is. High praise indeed and deservedly so.
