The environment art of Dear Esther, 2012 IGF finalist and cult indie hit, has been described as “astonishing” (EDGE) and “one of the most engaging game worlds in recent history” (Gamasutra).

In this talk, lead artist and environment designer Robert Briscoe will discuss his philosophy and approach to some of the important processes involved telling a rich visual story through the environment.
