Dishonored is a first-person action-adventure game developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks in 2012. The game is set in a fictional dystopian city called Dunwall, and players assume the role of Corvo Attano, a former bodyguard who is framed for murder and seeks revenge.

Arkane Studios is a French video game developer known for creating immersive sim games such as Prey and Deathloop. The director of Dishonored is Harvey Smith, who has previously directed games like Deus Ex and System Shock. The game's screenplay was written by Austin Grossman, who has also written for other notable games like Bioshock and Epic Mickey. The game's music was composed by Daniel Licht, also known for his work on the TV series Dexter.

The game's sound design enhances the immersion experience, with sounds of the city and characters adding to the atmosphere of Dunwall. The game's engine, Unreal Engine 3, is known for its versatility in creating large and detailed environments, which is evident in Dishonored's visually stunning and artistically designed world. The game's graphic effects add to the atmosphere of the game and enhance the overall aesthetic.

Dishonored deserves praise due to its imaginative gameplay and funny immersive sim mechanics. The game's positive aspects include its artistic design, detailed world-building, and the ability to complete missions in various ways. However, some aspects could be improved, including the game's AI, which can sometimes feel inconsistent, and its limited character dialogue, as well as the bad narrative based in tons of documents to read.
