With their most recent Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning developer diary, the game’s art team goes into great deal in order to explain the work that they put into creating a fictional world with character, intrigue and age.
Throughout its seven-minute run time, fans are treated to behind-the-scenes glimpses of the conceptual artwork which was used as groundwork thumbnails for the animation team, with explanations regarding what the group’s thought processes were during their creation process. Furthermore, we also learn about the world of Amalur, including its created sense of history.
If you’re eagerly anticipating the February 7 release of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, then I highly recommend watching the entire video diary. It’s incredibly informative and happens to be well put together. Heck, they even go into detail about choosing specific gem colours.
