Robbie Swifthand and the Orb of Mysteries

Here’s a making of video for Robbie Swifthand and the Orb of Mysteries:

The narrator takes viewers through a series of examples describing, in hilarious fashion, the intricate level design solutions developers came up with to trick players into their sudden deaths. Packed with countless fatal traps, each Robbie Swifthand level challenges players to think before they act and scan the level for any hidden “surprises”. The video also touches on the audio aspect of the game, introducing people behind various character voices, including Vassia Zacharopoulou, the voice of Anna in the Greek dubbing of the Disney movie Frozen and Dimitris Chavres, who voiced Kratos from God of War in the Greek translation of the game.
