On April 15, 2019, tragedy hit Paris as the iconic Notre-Dame Cathedral was seen wrapped in flames for over fifteen hours. Unfortunately, the main spire of the monumental structure collapsed as an aftermath of the fire, leaving a dent in the 800-year old history of the cathedral.
Following the devastating accident, donations came pouring in from all across the nation to help rebuild the historic Notre-Dame Cathedral. According to the reports, it is expected that one of 2014’s most successful game “Assassin’s Creed Unity” will step forward to donate for the cause.
The game featured a replica of Notre Dame and Ubisoft designer, Caroline Miousse spent two years in the cathedral in the process. She spent that time developing the virtual replica of Norte Dorm and the accuracy in the pictures is bound to leave you awestruck.
“I made some other stuff in the game, but 80 per cent of my time was spent on the Notre Dame”, Miousse was quoted saying in an article published on The Verge. The article then went on to discuss the tremendous amount of effort put in by the designers into a game, especially for “Assassin’s Creed Unity” and the series which boast of some of the best graphics we have seen in gameplay.
The details in the graphics will make one wonder the number of dedicated hours it took to bring a picture to reality and a possible attachment to the monument. Her detailed study on the architecture of the monument can help recreate the damaged parts and rebuild the interiors to resemble as far as it can be, to its original glory. However, their stance on donating towards the rebuilding of Norte Dame remains uncertain as there has been no official statement about the same.
