Last year, the Art of Fury project commissioned 38 Raw Fury game-inspired art pieces, from 23 artists, representing 15 nationalities, held two real-world exhibits in Stockholm and Zagreb (plus a virtual gallery!), one online art auction, and donated over €3,500 to charity! This year we’re proud to kick off the Art of Fury series once again by featuring art from the Tribeca-winning NORCO, a Southern Gothic point and click narrative adventure game, releasing on PC and Mac on March 24th – wishlist it here.
To celebrate the art of NORCO please check out the galleries below, bid on a piece in the auction, or learn more about the exclusive ‘The Art of NORCO’ companion art book to the full game.
Below you can view a selection of 19 pieces of NORCO concept art, paintings, and pixel art environments, inspired by the disappearing swamplands, labyrinthine oil refineries, and other landscapes in the titular town of Norco, Louisiana and other parts of Greater New Orleans. Enter our virtual gallery via Steam or your browser to see the full exhibit and immerse yourself in NORCO’s painterly and cinematic pixel art.
If you happen to be in Stockholm, Sweden, please visit the c/o Bauer gallery at Köpmanbrinken 4, Old Town, to explore the NORCO exhibit in person!
Take home your favourite NORCO art piece in the Art of Fury NORCO Edition Auction, here.

100% of the proceeds from the auction will be split between the artists and an environmental organization in the New Orleans region. Please visit the auction site for full details.
We are proud to announce ‘The Art of NORCO‘, a PDF companion piece to the full game. It features over 80 pages of NORCO’s painterly and cinematic pixel art. From conceptual sketches to polished game environments, see how the disappearing swamplands, labyrinthine oil refineries, and other areas in and around the titular town of Norco, Louisiana inspired the art of the game. Discover NORCO’s underlying themes of industrialization, suburbanization, speculative geography, cancer, faith, and home – and read bios and backgrounds for the characters and locations in the game, plus interviews and anecdotes from developers Geography of Robots.
