This third and final animated short about the backstory to Dishonored is titled “In the Mind of Madness” and, indeed, its protagonist Piero is not a well man. He keeps having dreams about a dying child (possibly the boy we saw in yesterday’s short) and feels compelled to design and make a fancy mask.
That mask, if you’ve been following along with any of Dishonored’s promotional material, is the one which Corvo will end up wearing in the game.
All three of these short videos have been created by ‘Psyop and Rokkan’, scored by Daniel Licht (of Dexter soundtracking) and narrated by Chloe Grace Moretz (probably best known as Hit Girl from Kick Ass).
Dishonored is coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 early next month.
