The Elder Scrolls V takes inspiration from Apple
As The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim details continue to trickle through, an odd little fact has been revealed.
According to the game's director, Todd Howard, Bethesda have taken inspiration for their menus from Apple's easily-navigated designs. Which is handy because as any fan of The Elder Scrolls series will attest, these are games with a lot of options, stats and equipment to sift through.
"You know in iTunes when you look at all your music you get to flip through it and look at the covers and it becomes tangible?" asked Howard. "One of our goals was 'What if Apple made a fantasy game? How would this look?' It's very good at getting through lots of data quickly, which is always a struggle with our stuff."
You can get your hands on Skyrim's menus, and indeed the game itself, when it launches on November 11th 2011.
Thanks Game Informer.
