Creating a Unique Visual Direction: The Successes and Failures of Creating a Near-Future Cyberpunk Setting with a Renaissance Twist in Deus Ex 3


Eidos Montreal art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete will discuss the creative underpinnings behind the unique blend of art style that combines the past, present and future in the next evolution of the Deus Ex franchise. The title's 'Cyber Renaissance' look is infused across the fashion, characters, environments and story, formulating the essence of a visually impactful experience. Jacques-Belletete explains the steps that the developer took to establish the game's visual style, and how the blend of action, role-playing and adventure genres in Deus Ex 3 will be thematically anchored using a consistent art direction.
