Bethesda Game Studios is responsible for some for the biggest games in the industry, both in terms of size and popularity. Danny O’Dwyer and the team at noclip talked to some Bethesda’s biggest names, like Todd Howard, Ashley Cheng, & Matt Carofano to talk about their experiences and lessons learned developing major games in the Bethesda pantheon.
The documentary, which was made while noclip works on a feature about the recently announced Fallout 76, goes into things like the genesis of the games and how those thoughts lead directly into map creation as a fundamental grounding for the titles.
You can check out the documentary below.
It’s a bit of a long watch, but if you have any affection for Bethesda’s library of remarkable games, then it is absolutely worth a watch. The insight gained into how they’re made is valuable for fans.
