Introducing Anatomy – A New Game Design Series on The Escapist


Time for your Anatomy lesson!

The Escapist has a new video series about game design called Anatomy, hosted by JM8, a game design lecturer from the United Kingdom. Anatomy will be dissecting all facets of video game design — but especially art, sound, and level design — in a way that complete beginners can understand, even if JM8 slowly loses his mind in the process. We have a bunch of content ready to go, with “The Anatomy of Hollow Knight” live now on The Escapist website.

About the author

JM8 joined the Escapist in late 2021 where he brought his formerly known as “Anatomy” series to the site, eventually rebranding the series into “Design Delve”. Design Delve is a show with an aim to educate gamers in the ways of game development in an easily digestible and fun way. Alongside this JM8 is responsible for a lot of the animations you see in “Adventure is Nigh” and all of its sound design whilst also working closely with the team on The Escapist documentaries. Outside of The Escapist, JM8 also works as a Game Design lecturer at a university in the South West of England and a level and sound designer for “The Bog'' which is currently in development by Nightmire Studios. His favorite game is Beyond Good & Evil
