The Darkness II, another non-photorealistic game in the pipeline
Another game with strong non-photorealistic extensions is Darkness 2, to be released in late 2011 from Digital Extremes. It has a more unique perspective on cel-shading compared to other games with similar approaches in so much that it is based on high-contrast lighting and hand-painted textures, similar to a graphic novel.
As can be seen above, this results in a very good compromise betrween impressionism and realism and bodes well for a fantastic and fairly unique visual style for the eventual game. More information about Darkness II can be found here.
