Designer Reflection – Nadine Schäkel

Nadine Schäkel is the art director for The Dark Eye and a frequent contributor to the game’s amazing visual style. For this post, we’re going to let her art do most of the talking. You can see more of her work on her DeviantArt page, GaiasAngel.


The Dark Eye had a great impact on my life art-wise the moment I started playing. This game is full of interesting ideas that have been developed over many years to their full potential, and it’s hard not to get inspired by its vibrant world. This rush of creativity took me by storm and has not released me to this day.
