The Tales from Dunwall, Part 1: The Awakening

We have just released ‘The Awakening’- the first in a three-part Dishonored webisode series entitled ‘The Tales from Dunwall’. These engrossing prequels, scored by Daniel Licht (Dexter) and narrated by Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick Ass), gives you a first-hand glimpse into Dishonored’s shadowy whaling world of Dunwall, where plague is rampant and the city is in disarray and on the verge of dystopia.

Concepted by Rokkan and developed by Psyop, each episode was predominantly produced by hand. Each frame was a fully rendered style frame, which was then enhanced with 3D elements to add to the painterly atmosphere, dimension and depth of each shot.

Download the Dishonored: Rat Assassin App

Help reduce Dunwall’s rat plague with our new iPhone app, Dishonored: Rat Assassin — available today on the iTunes App Store. Featuring classic “slice and dice” gameplay, as well as weapons and abilities from this Fall’s game, Rat Assassin is 100% free to download.

Want to play on iPad? An iPad-specific version will be available in the near future.
