Behind The Art Of 'Last Window'

Here's a cool look at how the animation in DS games such as 'Hotel Dusk: Room 215' and 'Last Window: The Secret of Cape West' was accomplished through the use of rotoscoping. Sadly, the game developer Cing is no longer around and it is unlikely that 'Last Window' will be released outside of Japan due to low demand. But enjoy this cool glimpse into the development process that utilized footage of real actors and rotoscoped them into animated characters using a Wacom Cintiq. The effect is rather nice!
