Will to Fight

Will to Fight is the lighting system that describes the level of Nazi occupation over Paris. When black and white the Nazi oppression is strongest. At full color that area of Paris has been "liberated" by the resistance. Originally I had designed 5 level of Will to Fight but we ended up only using 2, black and white and full color. The Saboteur was awarded best art direction by IGN in 2008 largely due to our unique lighting.

Will to Fight level 1. Black and white, endless rain, only night with only yellow lights of color.  The morale of the people is at it's lowest
