I thought it was an extreme close up of something from a microscope.


Rad_X_core

Immediately thought it was a scanning electron microscope!


Buck_Thorn

I expected a tardigrade to come waltzing around the corner at any time.


ElvisDumbledore

Grade walks warily down the street With the brim pulled way down low Ain't no sound but the sound of his feet Machine guns ready to go


Lalamedic

Are you ready hey are you ready for this? Are you hanging on the edge of your seat? Out of the doorway the bullets rip, To the sound of the beat yeah!

noteverrelevant

I recently bought a VR headset and now every time I hear an idea I imagine being able to do it in VR. Being able to shrink down and explore an environment at that kind of scale would be wild.


Lalamedic

I’d probably get in trouble for putting weird shit in there.

jb2386

Me too. Thought someone did something artistic at the micro or nano scale lol.


kallakukku2

Same


choff22

This guy takes great care of his body, he even built perfectly constructed walkways and stairs for his cells to get around easier.


goldenage768

Cells at work!


[deleted]

The greyness and the visual quality of an electron microscope


Katakros

I played through this zone in Elder Scrolls...have to get to the campfires and light them to get rid of the stacking debuff.


usernamepooldrained

Yeah I haven’t even played elder scrolls but it’s the game I instantly thought of when I saw this


gametimebrizzle

What if when we zoomed in really close to ice, this is what we always saw.


Vnecktrev09

Immediately what I thought too


BrokenWisdom77

This place has High Hrothgar vibes.


Palifaith

That frost troll scared the shit out of me the first time.


solofatty09

[There was only one way to handle it...](https://giphy.com/gifs/run-away-fast-3o7ZeTlKIJS83gyhd6)


energetic-dad

First time I played, I saw this frost troll coming and said, "there's no way the game would send an unbeatable monster at me this early, I bet I can take that guy!" *Narrator: He did not, in fact, "take that guy."*


Scubastevie00

That was exactly my thought 10 years ago. Ha! I killed a dragon! This is easy! Come here human sized monster! God damn that first play through was forever ago.


Kahlandar

Wouldnt another elder scrolls game to first-playthrough be nice? =/


xxCMWFxx

I did this very thing. Some poor NPC on the way slowed him down for me


ItIs430Am

😂


TheCheck77

I was doing a mage build and had to use up my potions of invisibility to sneak by after dying to it about 5 times. Second play through was as a stealth archer and I 2 shot it.


babosh

Stealth archer plus fire mage is the playyyyyy for frost anything. And spiders. Fire is just a good way to go.


belacan_ikan

I hate that frost troll


energetic-dad

I love how dying to that frost troll is just a shared experience all Skyrim players have.


Javaed

Am I the only one who just climbs the side of the mountain rather than deal with all the stupid winding paths?


redikulous

This is the way.


energetic-dad

Haha, now that I'm a more seasoned Skyrim player, I definitely do that. But I just started playing literally a few months ago, so I definitely stuck to the paths at first. It's really surprising how soon you run across that frost troll.


Javaed

That makes sense. I learned in previous Elderscrolls games that the most direct path is jumping up the cliff side. I actually didn't encounter the troll until I left the temple on my first play through. =)


Xaxxus

I just bought a horse and walked straight up the side of the mountain. Horses are the ultimate off road vehicles in Skyrim.


DaMarcio

I used to play WOW, so I'm fairly versed in jumping up through mountain ranges lol


GrimmDeLaGrimm

Like straight murdering a chicken and pissing off a whole town the first hour of gameplay


idunno_chad_i-guess

It killed lydia. I didn't think she could die. My house has felt so empty.


duaneap

Only the first time. Then, when you know he’s coming and you’ve been grinding sufficiently, you make that little fucker your bitch.


blarch

Or you could just jog away from it.


smoketheevilpipe

Not an option. Must kill everything.


duaneap

It’s the Dovahkin way.


Nichia219b

Is this real? Where is it located?


Synergy8310

On the Throat of the World in Skyrim.


trapitos

I came here to say this im glad someone else did


Ohmec

IMO looks like hoarfrost on some of the karst topography in china.


leonnova7

For REAL.


lasagna_for_life

Totally. I even felt some College of Winterhold energy.


Revolutionary-Rush89

Those damn ice wraiths that come out of nowhere, I swear I heard one when I looked at this picture.

This place makes me feel so uncomfortable.

exactly what i was gonna say


ExtensionDelay636

r/beatmetoit


vitium

Looks like a miniature model. Would explain why it doesn’t look quite right and the camera movements are so erratic, and why they never answer any of the “where is this?” questions.


Joseph_Beefman

I thought it was a /r/Miniworlds post


GhostriderJuliett

I'm not certain, but it looks like [Tianmen mountain](https://imgur.com/gallery/MPpfMVC) in a snow cloud. It's a surreal place.


Throwaway021614

Did nothing happen here as well?


bibasik7

Yup, nothing happened there in 1989.


Tankh

It's a map in a game made by someone who has never actually seen snow


D-o-n-t_a-s-k

I thought the same thing. The movement doesn't look real unless a 45ft giant was filming on a 17ft camera


billy_teats

The background is nothing, not clouds or sky. It’s altered some way for sure


GetsHighForALiving

Have you never seen fog?


karate-dad

Have you? Edit: seriously, do you think this is what fog looks like? OPs video is post processed beyond recognition


Evilmaze

The scale of the POV to the objects sizes don't make sense either. It's definitely a miniature setting.


GetsHighForALiving

Honestly I have no idea where you guys are getting this idea. It’s not a miniature model.


Dexter321

The camera movements are erratic because it’s a self stabilizing video camera being held by someone walking on ice. The jerkiness comes from moving the camera past the angle that keeps it “stable” so then it over corrects with that weird movement to catch up


tokillaworm

What an odd theory.


semioticmadness

Think the video playback is also sped up by a bit but there’s no frame of reference to tell by how much


Darth_Scooter_

Looks like a miniature model


ImAnIndoorCat

#Happy cake day!


Darth_Scooter_

Thank you


bcalvin

This that shit from Frozen


misterpickles69

I don’t know if this helps but I found a staircase that takes us exactly where we need to go.


Abdu11ah_naveed

its been 3 years and i still remember this line


FMAB-EarthBender

Lmao, I saw the title and I'm like, videogame? Maybe kingdom hearts Frozen level. More like the movie Frozen!


samhaindragon

If I climb this I had better learn another shout.

LaLo_AuTiSM

Is this just fantasy?

Shattered Memories


Axtorx

I was thinking the “fast travel” world from God of War


KungFuActionJeSuis

reminds me of the painting from dark souls. ariamus or something…?


Imgroult

Ariandel! I personnaly get High metro Exodus vibes but you're definitly right. Ariandel was a hell of a DLC


Teapot_and_Teacup

Skyrim, the way up to high Hrothgar!


Superdunez

Looks like Resident Evil 8.


KyleSJohnson

Totally made me think of the walk up to House Beneviento


BasemanW

Honestly, it reminds me more of RE7 with all the mold laying around.


rafamasta14

There's a frost troll waiting for you around the corner, take care.


JamesKevin6863

Where is this located


Antiqas86

a small model, not a real place IMO


grubnenah

Looks kinda like the path up to multnomah falls in the winter. But that's mostly just the mist & excessive frost everywhere.


scissormesoftly

I used to love that hike up to the top, sadly after 21 surgeries I can no longer gain vertical feet under my own power. I wonder if there is some kind of motorized accessibility vehicle that could get me to the top.


ChrissiTea

It definitely has mini vibes to me too, but the camera work feels too real (if that makes sense? Like it should be shaking in a different way if it's actually a mini) I can't work out if it's just /r/confusingperspective or not haha


Antiqas86

There's the thing-distance has blur here. It's tlwhat makes me think it's a mini scene. this happens when you film close ups of small objects or faces, it does not happen when you film landscapes. Yes camera swivels, giving you oposite impression of large place, that is true. However all the objects look suspicious as well, the way snow covers the place, lack of any detail or colour at others. Mostly though it's that weird distance blur and fog.


TheUnluckyBard

The "snow" is that fake spray-on model snow you can get at hobby stores.


enchantrem

looks like insulation foam


Tiberius666

In the painted world of Ariamis


downtune79

Doesn't look real. If it is that's awesome


CritMasterFlex

Yeah the render distance is kinda low


diniychan

final stage in Metro Exodus

Could you get these supplies to the chest at the top?

356366367464

Am I gonna meet the graybeards at the top


Lipshitz1

There's definitely some skeleton guards or draugr at the top of those stairs. Looks like the middle of a run so I doubt it's a boss fight yet.


dirtydave73

Reminds me of Mt Pilatus in Switzerland.


cesar_tacolover

Went to Lucerne for a summer abroad. Gosh darn beautiful (,:


dirtydave73

It really is something else. The whole region is amazing. Northern Italy up to Bavaria.


cesar_tacolover

Unfortunately only had the chance to explore Lucerne and Zurich. But I believe u 100%, the whole place is pristine and feels magical. Cheers


stopexploding

Wife and I had two days there on a whirlwind tour through a bunch of European cities a few years ago. Whenever someone asks what was our favorite, I hem and haw and say we loved it all. But, then we end up talking about Lucerne the most, because it was enchanting.


YellowCowCascade

This is not real 😂


Mirimel

Looks like something out of The Long Dark. Watch out for bears.


Trebge

Good luck getting on those stairs


-Yeesh_dude-

God Of War fats travel system vibes.

Silent Hill or Until Dawn vibes

Damn. Skyrim really does still hold up after 10 years.

That's definitely the 8-thousands step from Skyrim.


naxos420

looks like you were going to the grey beards to learn the shouts


Combosingelnation

What's the mountain you have to climb in Skyrim? I got the vibes of that, anyway.


Phantom-Mastermind

This looks exactly like the mountain pass where the speakers are in Skyrim. I wonder if they used this as inspiration for it.

Rafa_turtlepower

It looks awfully similar to the Call of the dead starting room in black ops.

A microcosm found with an electron-microscope...


GourmetYoshe

Reminds me of watching my older brother play Silent hill lost memories on our Wii 😳


Azkabandi

Looks straight out of an electron microscope shot of a parasite world


nio_nl

I bet that still looks strange if it wasn't frozen. The camera angle, blurry background, and oddly low fences give this a miniature look.


AnonymousWriter69

At the end of the path you will find Elsa's castle


elvisonaZ1

Its actually a behind the scenes for the frozen movie.
