In a new video, the team behind Burial at Sea – Episode 2 share their proudest moments developing the final installment of BioShock Infinite’s story DLC.
The video, it seems, serves dual purposes. It exists partly as a behind-the-scenes video about Episode 2, but also as a vehicle to help those affected by the “winding down” of Irrational Games—which Ken Levine announced last month and will see the BioShock creator take about 15 Irrational employees to form a smaller studio—promote their work and skill sets. The former, of course, comes with its own caveat—potential spoilers about gameplay design, environments, and general details about the as-yet-released DLC.
The latter, meanwhile, strikes me as a touching reminder that the videogames we reduce to quantified review scores are the product of a concerted effort by designers, artists, programmers, and musicians—people—who pour their hearts and souls into crafting these digital worlds and stories and experiences.
BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode 2 launches March 25 on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 worldwide.
