The House of the Dev

S1E3. Creating worlds with Viktor Antonov

July 20, 2021

Raphael Colantonio and Peter Salnikov talk to Viktor Antonov, co-author of Half-Life 2 and Dishonored, about mixing reality and fantasy in video games, harmony in art, and what Gogol and Hoffman can still teach you.

  • A place where magic is just as usual as morning coffee: how Viktor Antonov builds his worlds;
  • How to pitch a creative and innovative idea to a cold-blooded business partner;
  • One precise concept art vs. tons of useless sketches;
  • Human brain and perception: how to keep the player concentrated;
  • Rare themes and places that lack a video game adaptation.

This and many more – in the third episode of The House of The Dev podcast with Raphael Colantonio and Peter Salnikov.
