When EA Sports announced it was resurrecting 80′s arcade staple, NBA Jam, we were all feeling more than a nostalgic twitch in our joystick hand.
NBA Jam mixes the outrageous moves and fun of the original old school coin operated two-on-two game, but updates it with slick, modern NBA athlete character likenesses and big time arena styling.
Popgun was tasked with capturing the spirit of the original game in a contemporary piece of keyart. Setting a ball and LED marquee on fire, and have it smash through a hardwood floor seemed perfectly fitting.
Upon its release, everyone agreed that our version of the round ball classic was a high flying, backboard smashing, slam dunk!
