From Strategyinformer.com: "Many people these days don’t know the name “Looking Glass Studios”. Hell, even at their peak they weren’t that famous, hence why they went under. Maybe you’d do better with the names “Irrational Games”, “Thief”, “Warren Spector”, “System Shock”, “Ken Levine”, and the various series made in what’s dubbed ‘The Looking Glass Aesthetic’ such as Bioshock and Deus Ex. Wildly imaginative first-person games, with a staggering attention to detail and a feel unlike every other game out there. Dishonored, made by Arkane Studios with the assistance of the lead designer of Deus Ex and the lead artist behind Half-Life 2, is the first original IP made in the Aesthetic since Bioshock. It will either wildly succeed or massively disappoint".
