Seems like it'll be pretty good, but one thing really irks me. "nobody feels so freaked out that they just can't handle it.” When making a scary game, you should never pull punches.

"Later this year" can't come soon enough. Thanks, Patrick!

Great article, Patrick! Definitely will be keeping my eye on this.

IIRC his X-Files reference is off. Pretty sure his reference is to the second Pusher episode with the guy's sister. The "I will eat blue paint" episode.

There was a fantastic episode of Fringe with the same premise too, actually.

My favorite episode is definitely "Bad Blood". The intro will live with me forever.

I think that just says more about the kind of tension they're creating, not pulling punches. Gone Home feels like...have you seen House of the Devil? It's build-up, and not monster closets.

Honestly that two minute youtube clip looked more interesting to me then anything shown for the PS4.

Aww, it looks like the interview that you guys did with one of the developers for this game earlier in 2012 is gone; I keep getting a 404 trying to access it. I knew this game seemed familiar, but that duck in the cabinet with the key underneath it triggered my memory.

@patrickklepek: Er, should "Fullbright Compay isn’t going to spend two years..." be "Fullbright Company isn’t going to spend two years..."?

These guys have my attention, so does this game.

This definitely looks promising. I never played Minerva's Den, but heard great things about it. I can't wait to play this. There's so many great horror games announced right now. It's pretty terrifying, in a good way.

After watching the X-files episode "Home" I had to take a break. I regrettably haven't gone back since.

Very interesting, indeed. I'm looking forward to seeing more on this game when it's finished.

This looks great! I can't wait to give this a go!

Hope this game turns out to be good.

This may be the first horror game I play. What happened to Sam?

This is honestly my most anticipated game this year

Great write up, Patrick. I'm really looking forward to this. It's also great to hear about talented folks here in Portland working on games. I've always thought this was a great environment for creative and alternative approaches to games, given the culture and technology in the area.
