In Search Of Rapture

"Bioshock" was one of the best video games of the last few years, notable not only for it's detailed backstory but for the phenomenal design work inspired by the architecture and advertising of the 30's and 40's. A sequel is due out next year and, inevitably, there's now a promotional site/alternate reality game: There's Something in the Sea. In and of itself that's not very interesting. What caught my attention was the full-scale investigators office they had on display at Comic-Con, complete with audio recordings, maps, documents, newspaper clippings, and evidence samples. Joystiq has an entire gallery dedicated to peering into all the nooks and crannies of the room , and the attention to detail is quite impressive.
