Hey, Red. Made for [personal profile] isagel

Notes: As I said in my [community profile] festivids notes, this vid does absolutely no justice to the beautiful visuals, art, gameplay, environment, story or characters of the game itself. I started playing the game a couple of months ago and then hurriedly finished playing so I could vid it.

Also, I'm curious as to how much of the story actually came across in the vid? You learn a lot of the story through dialogue in the game, which I obviously didn't include.

This was also my first time vidding from gaming footage which was it's own challenge. Gameplay tends to be easily discernible from trailer footage, not to mention having to discard the footage where the mouse shows. The mouse is the talky-face of game vids.

Festivids post.

I didn't comment on this vid during the anon period because some people had guessed me as the vidder and I wanted to be sneaky :P But this was one of my absolute faves, and I WIIIIISH I'd made this. I love it so much. It's beyond beautiful.

Yay, I'm glad you love it :D I wish I had better gameplay footage to work with because there were so many beautiful parts of the game that I couldn't include because the stupid mouse was in the way.

"The mouse is the talky-face of game vids" is my new motto! :D

Seriously, though, I love this vid immensely. I've already watched it so many times, and now I'm going to download the file and watch it many times more. I'm so impressed that you actually did manage to make a beautiful vid with this tricky footage. Thank you again!

The mouse was horrible! I kept losing track of where it was and just when I thought I had a decent clip it would pop up again :(

But I'm glad you love the vid :D The footage, despite the mouse, was so gorgeous to work with, I wanna play the game again!

This is a such a lovely vid! I've already watched it twice, but the game is on my wishlist, so I can imagine it'll be ten times better once I've played the game :D

Thank you :) I definitely recommend playing the game, it's a lot more gorgeous in its entirety compared to my vid!
