Can't tell if these are intentionally referential Alone in the Dark/PS1 shitty graphics... or just actually shitty graphics.

Well the actual polygons for PS1 games always shifted around in wacky ways, this doesn't seem to do that they seem to stay where they are supposed to. Should they be shifting around since it's referential? OR is that just TOO crappy.

Jason Voorhees? Or Michael Myers from the Halloween series. I dunno. One of those.

Almost like he was some kind of... Shape...

Posted by VargasPrime

@snail: This game was originally based on Halloween, with Mike Myers being the slasher you're running from. Pig Farmer Productions wound up taking the game down, probably for copyright reasons, and now are releasing it with a new name (and a new face on the killer) to avoid any possible lawsuits I would guess.

Patrick played the original version on a Spookin' episode a while back.

Unless I'm mistaken, this looks a LOT like that bootleg Halloween game that Patrick played awhile back.

Edit: Pig Farmer Games, that's them alright!

Why does it have to look crummy?

Why does it have to look crummy?

Do you know how hard it actually is to make game graphics? Especially if you aren't a professional paid developer?

Why do I always have to read the comments to get what Patrick's posts are about?

Don't care how hard it is.

Don't care how hard it is.

Then to answer your question, it looks crummy because they don't have a budget.

I guess these guys are rolling in it, then.

That music is great, the jump scare totally got me and Pig Farmer Games is a great name for a studio. I'm sold.

I don't think you understand how hard it is to have a positive attitude. I do, and that's why I don't bother trying.

This trailer sounds fantastic. It looks.... not so much.

I am puzzled that there is any reaction to this other than derision.

The dev's FAQ says that it's both - he's not an artist, so that was the partial reason, but he likes the crummy look of PSX games and aimed to homage that.

I actually really like these graphics. There's something aesthetically fitting about creepy old PS1-era graphics.

Edited by ExitDose

I hope that PSOne doesn't become a new retro aesthetic.

Edited by JayCee

All dem hot PSOne graphics!

Edited by Dan_CiTi

Really like the look, though in some spots they could go a little less far with PS1-ness and make more Dreamcast-y.

Posted by ShaggE

Why? Why can we not have a good, polished horror movie game? Maybe this will be great, but I'm not getting my hopes up... especially since "Michael" *coughcough* is my least favorite of The Big Three, so it would have to be pretty damn good to win me over.

Now, an Elm Street game, on the other hand... one that doesn't involve punching bats or a really bizarre DOS-based retelling of Dream Warriors...

Edited by Yummylee

Really hope this'll usher in a new era of indie survival horror games using PS1 graphics & conventions, most importantly the camera angles and pre-rendered backgrounds!

Absolutely! I've always loved the idea of a Nightmare on Elm Street adventure game that plays like Heavy Rain or one of the modern-day Telltale games. Then again, given that Telltale appear to be on a mission to adapt every property known to mankind into an adventure game, maybe 'Telltale's Nightmare on Elm Street' won't be too far off...

Oh man, I never even considered a NOES adventure game! That would be incredible. Maybe covering what happened with Nancy between 1 and 3, or Alice after 5. Featuring Dokken as themselves! :P

But really, now the rest of my day is going to be spent imagining what such a game would be like. It would have to have Power Glove support, of course...

Posted by Willtron

I won't deny it, I think this is awesome.

Posted by Pirsig

There's a spookin' with scoops of this awhile back, watch it. If you come away from that thinking this is anymore than joke, there's no hope for you.

Yeah. Kind of like the NES' sound chip. That thing was so good at making creepy music.

You, the player, playing the game and battling Freddy, who is playing a game within the game to kill you.

This is that non-licensed indie-produced Halloween game that came out at the end of last year. I guess they changed just enough to release it for real.

Posted by Yretery

Just spent some time with this game, and honestly, I love it, but fuck it. I finished it, but the road to finishing it was long, tiring, and tense. The rampaging asshole does not screw around when it comes to placing world record times for disembowling people, or the times the game glitches out and doesn't play the music for when he is chasing you down until he's already taking your head off.

But the scene when you first "meet" the guy is pretty damn great and is the highlight of the game's visual style.
