Last Sunday I took a climbing-tour of the highest belltower in my village, Deventer in the Netherlands.
And during the climb I watched a nice carillon in action.
To me, the sounds it makes, gives me old city feeling.

Love to see/hear this in a FM.
(please notice me, when youre doing this)

Here some videos of it, for some inspiration.

People despise Peter Molyneux for what came out of the Fable series, but the story and hardships behind Black & White in a 3 page article intrigued me.

Page 3 is the best because they explain how they solved the endless avalanche of bug fixing, compiling and release:
http://www.gamasutra...ios_.php?page=1


 "I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

 

 

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.

Peter Molyneus lost Lionhead studio to microsoft, they basically took over from the inside out, and he left when he realised what had happened.

Another bit of period inspiration, for building spaces such as living quarters, kitchens, etc:

http://www.townsends.us/blog/search/

 

Just click the filters to the left - in our case, the likes of "16th century" and "17th century", or the various cooking and crafts topics - and you'll get a selection of brief articles with period imagery of various mundane scenes. Cooking, weaving, making gunpowder, what the inside of a workshop, kitchen, mill or inn look like, etc.

 

I feel documentaries and blogs about period everyday living are a real godsend when one wants to find inspiration for living spaces that both looks believable, and isn't visually generic.

Two somewhat recent movies that might possibly spawn some inspiration.

 

The Limehouse Golem takes place in Victorian England in the community of East London (Limehouse). It's a mystery/horror film. A generally okay movie with lots of period architecture, dreariness, and a particularly fine looking library.

Trailer: https://youtu.be/P8EJAyk01kk

 

Lady Macbeth takes place in the year 1865 in rural England. Actually a pretty good movie with a nice estate house, lots of creepy scenery/atmosphere, in a very fine countryside setting.

Trailer: https://youtu.be/2Z0N8ULhuUA
