Final Fantasy series composer Nobuo Uematsu is an amazing man. He's one of my personal musical heroes and I've had the pleasure of chatting with him a few times. Aside from being a talented composer, he also makes his own beer!
Uematsu also writes e-books, it seems. His first, "Bilk-0 1946," will be available for purchase on the iTunes Store this August. Pronounced "Buliko," this is a story about a robot created by Dr. Mabuse, a noted AI scientist. As Bilk-0 meets people, he has to deal with feelings and emotions.
This e-book is set to Uematsu's original music, so Final Fantasy fans can expect a treat for the ears. Hiroki Ogawa, the director of Nobuo Uematsu's music label, did the illustrations. I've also met him -- a very kind man.
Two great people put this book together so it has to be good! Bilk-0 1946 will be available next month from acttil, priced at $9.99. Check back with their site next month. There's also a Facebook page to follow.
Check our gallery out for a few preview images from the e-book.
