Our ship's been sailing swiftly through the month of September and we've fired up the cameras to chat about the creation of our clouds and to celebrate Talk Like A Pirate Day! If you've been off enjoying the remnants of summer or recovering from your Talk Like A Pirate Day party, you might've missed our previous Inn-side Story video where we dove deeper into the development of Sea of Thieves' #GreatWater. Go on and watch that a few times first - we wouldn't want your eye(s) to wander to the water too much whilst watching our next episode!

Now that you're sure you won't be distracted, feast your eyes on the gorgeous glimmer of lights in our next video! Ryan Stevenson (Art Director) and Andrew Finch (Principal Environment Artist) take a seat in the tavern and dive into a fascinating breakdown of lighting tech. Prepare yourself for stunning sunsets and cresting colours as they demonstrate the techniques being used to illuminate Sea of Thieves.
