Dishonored User Reviews
Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where steampunk- inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist in the shadows. You are Corvo, the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress who has been murdered. Framed for the crime, you become an infamous assassin, known by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is besieged by plague and ruled by a corrupt government armed with frightening technologies, dark forces bestow supernatural abilities upon you – but at what cost? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city, and the life you once had is gone forever.

It's possible, but very difficult, to get through the entire game without killing a single enemy or person in general
The game was originally meant to take place in the real world in feudal Japan. The developers then realized they didn't know enough about feudal Japan, so they then changed location to the great London fire of 1666, but then they decided that there had been too many changes to the setting to be realistic and set the game in an Alternate Universe. Another significant change was removing the ability to throw random objects around at will because according to Arkane, this meant that players could throw an object, freeze time, and then hop on the thrown object in midair, which would have broken the game.
Includes voice talents of notable actors such as Carrie Fisher, Chloe Moretz, Susan Sarandon and Lena HeadeyQuotes
Prison Walls: We all start with innocence, but the world leads us to guilt.
The Outsider: So ends the interregnum, and now Emily Kaldwin the First, will take her mother's throne, after a season of turmoil. You will stand at her side, Corvo, guiding her young mind, and protecting her from those who seek to exploit her, or cause her harm. You watched and listened when other men would have shouted in rage. You held back instead of striking. So it is, with the passing of the plague and Emily's ascension, comes a golden age, brought about by your hand. And decades hence, when your hair turns white and you pass from this world, Empress Emily - Emily the Wise, at the height of her power - will lay your body down within her mother's great tomb, because you were more to her than Royal Protector. Farewell, Corvo.
Lady Emily Kaldwin: It's a funny thing, ambition. It can take one to sublime heights or harrowing depths. And sometimes they are one and the same. Roseburrow learned that lesson all to well.Easter Eggs
In the seventh mission of the game, there is an assassin talking to another about the basics of stealth. The assassin’s dialogue is a direct reference to the tutorial from Thief: The Dark Project
The mission Lady Boyle's Last Party is loosely based off Edgar Allan Poe's story "The Masque of the Red Death".
In the H.Q. in one of the shops, on the second floor there is a large oval painted on the wall. On the outside of the same wall you can find a second oval. Reading a note near the first oval reveals a scientist wanted to use these to travel long distances, referencing the Portal series.The note reads:The "door to nowhere" has proven to be a safety hazard, but for me this project is an endless source of inspiration. With the proper application of energies, I believe I can transform the door frame into a window of sorts, one that will allow a traveler to cover the distance from my workshop to some distant, arbitrary point in a single step. Currently the step leads to a sheer drop, straight down into the courtyard, but in time it will bridge gaps that will boggle the mind. Such work is many years away, to be sure, but if I survive the plague I'm sure to succeed.
