A Special “Shadow of the Colossus” Valentine’s Day Message

From Olly Moss, the man behind the wonderfully minimalist Star Wars posters and Resistance 3’s Saul Bass inspired artwork, comes a very special Valentine’s Day message. Moss based it on the events in a certain PlayStation 2 game by venerable game designer, Fumito Ueda.

Moss tweets, “I made this dumb valentines thing for the girl” but anyone who has experienced the love and loss in Shadow of the Colossus will surely empathize with the message. It lies in wait after the jump.
