Rummaging around an old USB drive I came across some screenshots and text I had created during my rather obsessive 2012 Skyrim playthrough. I remember thinking that the drab, lifeless and gloomy interiors of Skyrim would make for some interesting photo ops. Lots of people were doing glorious ENB-powered exterior high-res shots that made you want to eat the screen; I wanted to take things in a different direction. Apparently I never got very far into this ‘Dovahkiin gets lonely too’ project but I think there was potential in doing Skyrim in a melancholic and pathetic tone. Judge for yourself.
