Game development sometimes has nothing to do with coding or creating art assets. In one of two new videos released by Square Enix today, we get a behind-the-scenes look at the extensive location scouting that went into Final Fantasy XV's development. If you want to see game developers crawl into holes, enter caves, make dinner, go to the zoo, watch tanks blow stuff up, catch snakes, and climb mountains, watch the video below – it's one of the strangest game-related videos you'll see this year.

If anything, it shows us just how committed Square Enix is to getting the little details right in Final Fantasy XV. It also shows us that game development can be a hell of a lot of fun.
