Dishonored animated short concludes three-part web series with murderous hallucinations

The third and final part of the effective Dishonored animated shorts is out now. This one provides a bit of background on Piero, described as a "key figure" in the city of Dunwall. His story will cross paths with Corvo, but what's his angle? What is the source of his madness? Why has he strung up a tumble of sheets and photos in the shape of a skull?

The film answers none of these questions, but oozes the same grimdark Dunwall vibes that the other two films captured so adeptly. The series was created by animation company, Psyop, who typically develop CG shorts. These films were "predominantly created by hand, which was then enhanced with 3D elements to add to the painterly atmosphere, dimension and depth of each shot."

“After we saw the story line, we decided to draw each style frame thirty or forty times and create a cell animated look and give it a sort of a painting-come-to-life effect," explains creative director John Saunders. Chloe Grace Moretz of Kick Ass fame narrates and Dexter theme composer Daniel Licht provides the music. Enjoy.
