Re: ZGI artwork

Thanks so much for that.  So ZGI was re-released on DVD a few months later?  How dare they!!  I wonder what the patch was for. What a great site this is.  Lots of screenies, artwork, - everything really (except for a new game!) And I've just realized: I did not ever get an Encyclopaedia Frobozzica w...

Re: ZGI artwork

Thanks.  I had hoped the 'unused artwork' was more than just concept sketches, interesting as they are.    I'll keep looking - the backstory sounds good.

Re: ZGI artwork

Thanks for the reply.  We never seem to get guides like that here in Australia, unless ordered from o/s.

Thanks: I'd love to see some scanned images.

If only Activision had met their promise of...
