Dishonored Concept Art: Yep, Totally Influenced By Thief
The Dishonored team is made of of people who worked on Deus Ex and Thief, so it makes perfect sense that as they were putting their game together, they’d draw from past experience for inspiration. (Indeed, Ricardo Bare explained their genre well when we interviewed him last week.) Dishonored obviously stakes out some rather unique ground, but it’s interesting while playing that you can see the connection between it and those earlier games. Illustrating that point, Dishonored artist Wes Burt has posted some early concept art demonstrating how Dishonored protagonist Corvo developed, and the similarities to Thief’s Garrett are pretty striking.
