|Apple of Eden
This "Pie of Eden" has the power to control the human mind, making it a tool of manipulation in the wrong hands. It can project images, and convey knowledge and predict future events. Precisely shaped like an apple, it emits a unique glow that testifies to its extraordinary properties. Artifacts like the Apple reflect the blurred lines between science and mysticism in the Assassin's Creed games. Folklore from different cultures and eras describes similar objects of great power that are believed to be other parts of the sky.
Maintaining the balance of power and preventing abuse is a task that brings together the often-conflicting Assassins and Templars and shapes the conflicts on which the series is based. The allure of the Apple of Eden continues to intrigue players as its legacy continues throughout Assassin's Creed history.
Creation and Development
Creating the Apple of Paradise was a painstaking and well-thought-out process. In the early stages, the object is believed to play an essential role in a larger storyline intended to demonstrate the vastness of the Isu's vast knowledge and science, which surpassed modern societies' understanding of the universe.
Game designers and writers worked together to strike a balance between Apple's omnipotence and the freedom of choice of the game's characters. Careful consideration is given to whether Apple is too creepy to dilute the story, or too shallow to separate its importance from plot development. It was meant to be both a narrative aid and an asset to the game.
The series also improved the in-game rendering. The glow and symbols representing her supernatural abilities have been intricately rendered, with careful attention to detail to capture the players' fear and show her dramatic impact at critical plot shifts. These adjustments were planned to ensure a smooth integration into the game's realistic historical settings. As a result, the Apple of Eden became a central narrative point in many of the games in the series, each of which served to further our understanding of its power and meaning. Representing the deep wisdom and scientific advancement of the Isu civilization, the apple is believed to be a symbol of intrigue, curiosity and wonder in the Assassin's Creed universe.
