If you read DualShockers regularly, you probably already hear the name Tal Peleg. He used to work at Naughty Dog as a Senior Cinematics Animator on games like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and The Last of Us, before moving on to BioWare, where he is currently working on Anthem as a Lead Cinematics Animator.
He is also known for having created the popular animations “Joel Banderas” and “Joel Nicholson“, giving the protagonist of The Last of Us the expressiveness of the two actors.
Yet, for the past five years he has been working on something else, his Dante’s Redemption CGI short, a five-minute-long fan short of Electronic Arts’ 2010 game Dante’s Inferno.
You can enjoy the video below, while we wait for the full release, alongside a poster featuring Dante’s beautifully-detailed model directly from Peleg’s Twitter.
Before you watch, do keep in mind that while Peleg currently works at an Electronic Arts studio, this continues to be a fan-driven effort and a personal project, so it shouldn’t be considered a signal that EA itself is still working in any shape or form on the Dante’s Inferno IP.
