Gives a whole new meaning to the creep cam.

Sure looks like poop. (the game I mean)

Holy shit this game looks horrible.

Posted by Humanity

I really wish they didn't make your character have such a pronounced behind when the other girl just has a regular skirt going on back there - although her idle animation looks like shes constantly posing in a photo shoot

What in the bluest of blue hell happened between the demo and the final game to result in this?

lol at the main character slamming the car door on the guy at 3:15.

On the length, I read it's supposed to be pretty explorable/replayable with lots of secrets to find. Like when it gets dark, you can go explore the town instead of going straight into the building and I guess there's supposed to be scary stuff to find or something out there.

Also, I'm pretty sure there are some tutorial pages in the game that explain how to defeat ghosts, with one of the mechanics being that some have weak points to need to hit. Ie. that white ghost, that scared Patrick 3 times with the same move, telegraphs hers pretty obviously by turning away from the flash, which exposes her messed up back.

Anyway, for a 29k budget, it doesn't look horrible if you can get past the PS2 lvl graphics. From an actual Let's Play I watched, it had some pretty good moments at least.

Well so much for this potentially being the scariest game ever.

Although I'm not a serious horror game connoisseur this just looks really underwhelming.

Well, you know what they say about girls with big hands...

Actually, neither do I.

That preview screams "Tina Belcher's Game of the Year"

The subtitles look like a chat log in an MMO

$60 for an 8 hour game. $15 for a 2 hour game. Maybe my math is wrong, but that seems just right. Still watching the quick look. So, far there seems to be better things to complain about than the length.

Turns out making a full game is really difficult. Making a game scary is also pretty tough, too. The two things combined... The issues with the player's ability to control the pacing, the difficulty in actually balancing a game where the player has no real power (it is really easy to make the game frustrating in an attempt to ratchet up the tension, conversely it is simple to make a game too easy in an attempt to avoid being frustrating).

All in all? Probably just turned out more difficult than anticipated, and the aspects of the demo that worked well were tough to pull off in a longer product.

EDIT: Also, I miiiiight be wrong here, but it seems like there might be some issues with translation/non-native English going on. Wonder if there is a native-language audio track, I find that tends to help stories like this. Things sound less stilted when the VO is in their native tongue...

Is it just me or does Patrick not realize why the screen edges turn white?

Posted by stryker1121

I cannot support this anti-Rastafarian game.

Posted by theinnkeeper

"Why did I leave everyone behind? That doesn't make a whole lot of sense."

Except that you are the one who made that choice, Patrick. Though, I blame years of bad game design influencing your decision. You did what everyone would do. Even if it is illogical.

I'm curious as to why you feel that way. Does everyone have to have the same shaped posterior?

Activision Budget is putting out games again?

Edited by Skrams

Wonder if it's the video or the game but the framerate on this seems to be not good.

A giant pigman as your first ghost is also the most uninteresting way to do a first ghost. I understand that it's Indonesian horror, but they could of pulled from a more generic scary story before they start throwing the weird ones that seem more hilarious than scary. Also I really hope Patrick was just supposed to take another picture of the second ghosts back to fully kill it. Otherwise that shit seems terrible. And it's really weird the character seems portrayed as a mute. I remember in the demo you had optional dialogue so she isn't obviously, but I wonder why they felt the need to have another mute protagonist. I guess because that's just what they wanted so whatever.

This quick look is hilarious.

I like Fatal Frame, but saying the camera mechanic is anything more than a first person shooter is a little ingenuous. It's still a weapon. It's still combat. Let's not pretend it's not.

This is not necessarily aimed at Giant Bomb, Patrick, or the people here. Just a thought on things I've heard over the years.

Well this didn't seem very good. And that makes me very sad.

There's a tangible difference, as a player, between blowing someone's head off with a shotgun and snapping a photo. Mechanically, it might service the same purpose, but the emotional impact is vast.

Is there a secret "Wally World" video in this game?

Also, that girl got SLAPPED.

Posted by kaos_cracker

I played through it and thought it was pretty scary. It got me a few times.

Posted by FateOfNever

Well, huh.. on one hand, this isn't what I expected AT ALL. On the other hand, this game looks sort of not great? It is pretty cheap though, so, maybe there's something in there for that price point. On the *third* hand, I actually am quite fascinated by the cultural horror lore that seems to be going on here with like the pig monster and that enemies actually get entries and stuff, because those sorts of things interest me to no end. So I may end up buying this simply to get more of that part of the game.

"Don't be afraid to open doors." Now there is a deep message for all of us.

A perfect example how having the GB crew spread out is not a bad thing :) keep the content coming man looking forward to Spooking with Scoops :D

Posted by HivemindEta

It's such a short game, Scoops, you should totally finish this on video!

Dead or Alive Volleyball is my fav. They never stop movIng...THEY NEVER STOP MOVING!

As for Dread-out, sure I got focused on her butt right in the beginning, but I noticed in dark environments it kind of glimmered and gave point of reference to the protagonist's physical location and such. Kind of works!

I am almost interested in playing this because it is after all outside my usual cultural/geographical etc. experience. A particular tree I like does grow there, or so I understand.

You're playing a PC game with a controller. How can you not get over the button prompts?

Dark Souls has Xbox controller prompts on PC.

and this game looks pretty shitty.

Posted by SkipperSonne

Making a note to watch this as soon as I get home, I was expecting a Spookin' on this if anything...

Did the flavor text on this change? I could have sworn it was about butts earlier.

That's some writing.

@everettescott: Because she has a ridiculously profiled ass - they can model different asses for the characters all they want it's just hers looks a little silly to me.

Edited by ArtelinaRose

It keeps looking to me like the main character's skirt is see through and she's wearing a thong. It's really bugging me.

@cuuniyevo: Damn, you beat me to it.

The character animations are the most disturbing thing about this.

LOL at around 13:00 for a few seconds I thought Patrick was a ghost looking out one of the windows of the building. THAT freaked ME OUT.

Posted by Yummylee

''it's kinda like a horror movie isn't it''

UGHHHHHHH FUCK THAT TROPE. FFFFFFFFFFFUCK IT

Also, that appears to be one awfully tight skirt.

Am I loosing my mind or does this game have breast physics?

Edited by SirOptimusPrime

Two things: that intro was incredible, and the MMO gen-chat subtitles are wildly confusing.

Edit: Okay, three... ghostipedia? Ok, game you've sold me a completely different atmosphere.
