With all the hype surrounding the upcoming stealth game Dishonored it’s quite gratifying to see that for the pre-buzz and on-line campaign of the game Bethesda have decided to produce some exquisite animation in form of a trilogy: The Tales from Dunwall.
A prequel created by Psyop & ROKKAN that have absolutely nothing to do with the look & feel of the game (hand animation mostly for the series) and which attempt to introduce us to that dark parallel world… those sterile lands where plague is rampant and the city is in disarray and on the verge of dystopia.
Today aired the last episode of the trilogy after telling us about how Dunwall was revolutionized by a new energy source in “The Awakening” and warning us about the dangers of accepting supernatural abilities from The Outsider in “The Hand that Feeds”.
This last episode entitled “In the mind of madness” introduces Piero, a key figure in the city of Dunwall, and who also plays a pivotal role in Corvo’s story…. 3 great animated shorts that give us a greater glimpse into that agonizing world.
