Dishonored Devs Try To Pin Down "Immersion"
The Dishonored video bombardment will leave nothing standing. Eventually all that will remain of former gaming websites will be a flickering screen and a hyperlink pointing at digital vendors of Bethesda's next big game.

The key devs on the project show up in this ten-minute mini-documentary to discuss how this concept relates to industrial design, the non-photorealistic art style, and weird alt-not-London that they're trying to express. There's a tonne of stuff on the architecture, of course, and it's inevitably full of lavish new glimpses the Dishonored world, too.
