tales-from-dunwall

So I’ve finally started making gifs from some of the character animation I did for Psyop’s Dishonored: Tales from Dunwall animations! I wanted to isolate a few of my favorite sequences from the rest of the backgrounds/effects to show what they look like on their own. 

This is a little zoomed-in segment of one of my favorites. It’s from the Episode 3 dream sequence. Poor lil Piero gettin’ tumbled around. So much fun!!

Dishonored: The Tales From Dunwall || Chapter 1 - The Awakening

"His name was Edmond Roseburrow, and Dunwall was his last hope. He had dedicated his life to knowledge and progress, but throughout the isles no one would listen. The Whale Yards were no place for a natural philosopher, but he had no where else to go. The poor and hungry gathered there hoping for a few scraps, and Roseburrow wondered if he would soon share their fate. But then he saw something. Something that made him realize his entire life’s work was a waste, and it brought a smile to his face. Roseburrow’s discovery breathed new life into Dunwall. It made him rich beyond his wildest dreams, but he never took his success for granted. So when young Anton Sokolov came to him with a radical new idea, he couldn’t help but give him a chance. Sokolov’s ideas ushered Dunwall to a new era of technology, but over time Roseburrow learned that sometimes progress comes too great a cost. It’s a funny thing, ambition. It can take one to sublime heights or harrowing depths, and sometimes they’re one and the same. Roseburrow learned that lesson all too well."

DISHONORED—TALES FROM DUNWALL EPISODE 3: IN THE MIND OF MADNESS

In the Mind of Madness, Bethesda’s third and final episode in their Tales from Dunwall web series, introduces the character Piero.

Piero is a key figure in the city of Dunwall and while his role is unclear, he is an important part of Corvo’s story; he is the maker of the mask that Corvo wears.

With the Empress dead, plague spreading, and Dunwall crumbling, Piero began having visions of children succumbing to the plague.

Driven by the children’s sorrow, Piero crafted his greatest creation: a mask to protect the wearer from the plague. Eventually this mask would be given to the Outsider and in turn, to Corvo.

If this three part series is any indication, the final game is going to be masterful. This final episode was full of so many allegorical images, like the children in body bags as pawns, that I literally have goosebumps from excitement.

Dishonored will be available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 9 (US) and 12 (EU). Pre-order on Amazon and receive the Backstreet Butcher Pack.
