Nostalgic for a plague-ridden open sewer?  Yeah sure.

I've always thought visiting the London or Paris of that time would be pretty interesting and fun. And by visiting, I mean Doctor Who style. I would never actually want to live back then. 1800s? Sure. Anything after modern sewer systems came along. My apartment, in an old development in a not so great part of town, has lots of things that even kings back then couldn't even dream of.

That is officially cool. Why don't they make that dataset available to game developers? Could do one or 153429 things with that as a settting.

It reminded me of an Assassin's Creed world.

Well it's done in the CryEngine, so it should be game-ready. I looked up the competition it was done for, it's hosted by Crytek.

I tried to fly through the streets, but got burned as a witch at 1:06.

But when flying, try your best not to crash into Thomas Farriner's bakery on Pudding Lane...

That was actually darn good. I enjoyed it and would like to see more videos of this type.

I prefer Nostalgia for an age yet to come.

Or you could simply take the train to York and walk around a bit.

It wasn't that great, tbh

-1 for headline.


Everyone knows the Fark headline should have been "Fly, through 17th century London, before the Great Fire"

Exactly, except not as high quality. Students probably didn't have quite the same budget to work with however.

Could have come straight from the Witcher as well.

How am I supposed to play Call of Duty: Stuart Restoration when they didn't give us any matchlock muskets?

I had my smellovision plugin active. Oh my God. I have to throw out my laptop now.

Looks like way too many glass windows for that time.  Glass tax enacted 1745 did not end until 1845.

And too much crap in the streets. Barrels, open sacks of grain, etc. They had storerooms.
