Watch part one of Noclip’s Final Fantasy XIV behind-the-scenes documentary By Erren Van Duine on June 23, 2017 at 4:57 PM

Crowd-funded venture Noclip has turned up with the first part in a three part series of videos recounting the birth of the original Final Fantasy XIV.

In the video, Noclip tells the story of how the 1.0 version of the game came into being, the inspiration it took from Final Fantasy XI and the path and reactions had from its initial failure. We’ve linked the full video, complete with subtitles, below.

    I thought this was a great watch, and further reaffirms my belief in the great dev team they have with ARR onwards, Yoshi P and Koji Fox in particular. Looking forward to part two and three for sure!
