Imagine reading Harry Potter in your childhood, then work on an original story of the series. This is the reality for many people in Avalanche, which literally give life to dreams with Hogwarts Legacy. This author has played and loved titles like Harry Potter and Pierre Philosophale on PS1, but has always dreamed of something more than just a link with a movie. It’s this game.
Passion then pours into these scenes. In this document, some of the main creators of the development team speak for their approach to the Hogwarts construction, including how they have designed areas that are only described in books. The artistic direction, as evidenced by the revelation of the gameplay, is of first order – a big thank you to the whole team for that.
The video lasts only six minutes, but it offers a decent overview of the creative process, and it is of course interspersed with gameplay clips and high revelation sequences, as well as tons of conceptual art. Remember that you can watch the complete revelation here, and others will follow in the weeks and months to come.
