Ah, Dishonored. Of all the titles wrapping up this year in gaming, this is the one that I find most appealing. Bethesda has released a short documentary video (the first in what appears will be a series) to give the people behind the game a chance to talk about the ideas that guided the artistic and gameplay direction of the game. My fanboy moment comes quick but ends far too short when the smartly dressed visual design director Viktor Antonov pops up to talk. As he was the mastermind behind the amazingly well-realized world of Half-Life 2, his involvement is one of the many reasons to get excited about the game. But enough starry-eyed admiration, here’s the video:

Dishonored will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows for North America come October 9th and Europe come October 12th.
