This Collector’s Edition vinyl set includes 2xLP of music from the original Rez, completely remastered for vinyl, plus an extra bonus 7-inch record featuring music from the new “Area X” content.
Of course, Rez is about more than just music and we wanted some place to show off the visual side of the game as well. So, we bundled a retrospective art book with the vinyl — 48-pages of giant Rez images (on some pages, 24 inches wide!!), complete with the comprehensive history of how and why Rez was created in the first place.
We worked with author Nick Hurwitch (The Hohokum Almanac, So You Created a Wormhole: The Time Traveller’s Guide to Time Travel) and designer Cory Schmitz (check the link because there’s too many things to list!) to interview Tetsuya Mizaguchi, as well as other key members of the original dev team, including art director Katsumi Yokota, programmer Osamu Kodera, artist Jake Kazdal, and Takashi Ishihara, the artist the new Area X content. What we ended up with was hours and hours of stories about the inspiration behind and creation of Rez – stories the team realized were just too good to waste.
