SOMA, a mysterious new project from James Jean

I was browsing around over on James Jean’s blog and came across these images from something called SOMA, which certainly piqued my interest. There’s basically no info about it, just a line from James that reads “From my secret stash,” and a simple Google search reveals nothing either. But as I prepared the images for the site I noticed that the second one above was titled “Character Line-up” and the last titled “Mushroom Boss Detail.” Could he be working on some kind of amazing, epic video game? I honestly have no idea, but if he did I’d absolutely buy it. Anyone know what SOMA is?

    SOMA is the greek word for body – in cell-biology the term is used for the body of a cell. You’ll find the term in the word psychoSOMAtic. And you can get stuff like AURA-SOMA-liquid in esoteric shops, to help you recognizing your energetic body. I like the work of James Jean!!!!

    The only thing I can think of is the soma used in Brave New World, a legal drug to escape troubles and real life…

    Soma is a type of drug, It is also heavily referenced in the great “Brave new world” by Aldous Huxley.

    I meant what is SOMA in regards to what James Jean is creating, not it’s previous cultural incarnations : )

    Apparently more of a ritual drink than a drug, my bad.
