Video games are arguably the best form of art, on account of them being able to transport players to magical places that blur the lines between imagination and reality. Technology has enabled developers to craft wondrous worlds with striking levels of detail, and when that technology combines with great art direction we get imaginary worlds that are simply unforgettable. Gamers have been treated to many such levels, and we will look at a few such examples today.
Dishonored 2 – The Clockwork Mansion
Arkane Studios did a fantastic job with Dishonored 2, a sequel that builds upon the foundations of the original with better level designs and varied powers. Dishonored 2 gives players the ultimate playground of possibilities with huge levels filled to the brim with secret zones and plenty of verticality, and the Clockwork Mansion is easily the best of the bunch. Even talking about this level in purely visual terms, this level impresses with its rendition of a mechanical palace. The palace is also home to an underground prison and rusty servant quarters which offer a stark contrast to the large rooms filled with all sorts of luxurious furniture and paintings on the upper floors. And of course, pulling the levers will drastically change the level layout which looks really awesome.
