Coming later this month to Noclip; a documentary series exploring the design of @Hitman, and how @IOInteractive survived going independent.

not to mention the soundtrack of this documentary. Talk about a freebie.
i also banked around seven or eight hours worth of gameplay over the weekend. so it’s pretty much all here now.

I’ve done a few motions graphics tests too. usually it takes me a few days to figure out the visual theme of one of our documentaries - but thankfully Hitman already has a strong, established aesthetic I could riff off of (aka rip off).

logged six hours worth of Hitman interviews today and feeling pretty good about it. tough work to get through, but it now means I get to start building the timeline tomorrow. you’re welcome future me!

Interview File List

Filming complete! Copenhagen is wonderful & @IOInteractive were incredibly kind, honest & open.

Our doc will explore the influence of Blood Money & Absolution, the expert design of the new @Hitman games, and how the studio survived the big breakup. Coming soon to @noclipvideo .

In case you missed the stream (and our not-so-subtle clues) we are flying to Copenhagen next week to talk to @IOInteractive about the history of their studio, and the design of their games. We couldn’t be more excited.


im really looking forward to this, especially the interviews from the level designers. hearing them talk about how they make the levels is one of the most interesting things.


Wow we saw a lot of these names on ioi monthly

Familiar last names too; Marta La Mendola and Mattias Engstrom.
