Risen 2 built a new animation system for drunk pirates [Video]

In the latest ‘Making Of’ video for Risen 2: Dark Waters, developers Pirahna Bytes explain how they had to come up with a new animation system for drunk pirates. 
This involved getting a bunch of actors in a motion capture studio and filming them acting drunk. In total, two-to-three thousands animations were captured – not all of them of drunk parrot lovers, mind. Some are sober parrot lovers.
All of this is explained in more detail in the video below. It’s a bit techy but there’s a decent chunk of info to digest. Enjoy.
