In this 2018 GDC session, Guerrilla Games' Richard Oud discusses what it took for the team to create the mechanical beasts of Horizon Zero Dawn from scratch.

It was a fascinating talk because Oud explained the process from pre-production and prototyping, all the way to the final polish of the characters, reference, motion style, workflow, animation-tech and AI behavior. Along the way, he shared a smorgasbord of practical lessons learned that can be applied to other projects.

The robotic beasts of Horizon Zero Dawn were strikingly lifelike examples of high-quality game animation, so if yo didn't get a chance to see Oud's talk live make sure to catch it now that it's free to watch via the official GDC YouTube channel!
