About 20 minutes in I was thinking 'meh, this doesn't affect me at all'

Then it hit me and I was shit scared for the rest. Weird.

@jarmahead - pretty sure Kojima made it intentionally obtuse because he didn't want the end to be revealed too soon. Doubt it will be like that in the real game. (aside from a few)

Posted by BagSquad

@jarmahead: I highly doubt this will be like the actual game, I don't even think of this demo as a game, more of a proof of concept or playable teaser

I don't quite see how you'd cast Norman Reedus if you want your horror game to be taken seriously.

It's because Hideo Kojima is a huge fan of Norman Reedus. In fact, he's tweeted several times about how he would love to work on something with Reedus (I guess his way of doing a subtle tease, in retrospect).

Reminds me of how he's a big fan of Kiefer Sutherland, who is the star of Kojima's other game in development.

@tangwich: I'm sure he has to play up his reactions somewhat. I can't imagine silent shock pulling that many viewers.

Does anyone actually say "Nine Eleven" when referring to 911? I've never heard that before.

1 minute till midnight.

Chilling.

Especially if it's the switchover for daylight savings and you don't know whether to set your watch back an hour or forward.

Kinda wish I had a PS4 in order to play it instead of watch it. Love you Pat, have missed the 'Spookins'!

Hey @patrickklepek, it's funny you mention this webcam issue with XSplit and the AVerMedia ExtremeCap U3 (which I presume is what you're using.) I actually just bought one of those for a similar reason and have a review and video companion going up on my blog about it today. Not going to self-promote that here but I wanted to let you know that if you do want to be able to watch game play through your monitor without having to stare at your whole XSplit scene with the webcam and whatnot, you can buy this $20 HDMI splitter and split the feed coming out of your PS4, one end goes into the ExtremeCap, the other into your monitor. It does support sound and video. This splitter is cheap but has glowing reviews and has the added benefit of stripping out HDCP so it makes capturing a PS3 or a PS4 without messing with the settings dead easy to do. Just thought I'd offer that for the future as it gives you the best of both worlds. Other than not having a passthrough, the ExtremeCap U3 blows away Elgato, which I've always thought was overrated. Hope this helps.

I'm a grown ass man who actually likes horror movies quite a lot and I spent the first 30 minutes of this clutching a pillow to my chest. And I wasn't even playing.

It did cease to be scary at the end, but the first half, damn.

Posted by gerrid

First person horror is so much worse, since you always feel like there is something behind you. So horrible. The corridor is perfect for that since you know it's either in front or behind....and there's nothing in front.

Super 8 had an interactive ad piece that came in with Portal 2. It's really cool, I wish more people did stuff like this. Unique slices that superficially touches on what the game is about, instead of traditional demos.

So some splitters don't split the audio + video together? I guess I didn't know that. I'll have to pick this up!

Those graphics are incredible.

EDIT: This looks real scary but towards the end it kinda turns into bullshit.

Edited by PXAbstraction

@patrickklepek: Well, in general, anything that supports HDMI should support both. I certainly haven't seen a splitter that doesn't but perhaps that's the case with some. The one I linked to was actually recommended to me in other, older reviews of the ExtremeCap U3 as well as in other forums I checked. Mine is supposed to arrive either today or next Monday so I'll try it for myself. I'll send you a PM with the result so you don't end up wasting your money. :)

This game looks like the worst thing ever, in the best way ever.

Posted by DeadPanJazMan

"After neighbours called nine-eleven" Oosh, unfortunate loss in translation there!

Posted by julirocks

Got a premium subscription just for this video (even though it was released for non-premium users). I hate horror games but I'm obsessed with PT. Maybe one day I'll be brave enough to play it.

Posted by kantrip

Having to watch this in chunks. Holy Hell this is scary.

Yeah, please PM me! My problem was that it wouldn't output audio unless it was only splitting to one source, either one monitor or the other. If it was split into two monitors at once, the audio disappeared (though I could get it to play through my headphones via the PS4 controller...).

Since watching this originally on Spookin' With Scoops, I've become oddly intrigued by this game. I've never played a Silent Hill game before and now I think I might try this one out in the future.

Same here. GdT's involvement had me more interested than anything else, but after watching this, I'm intrigued.

Posted by KaneRobot

I thought nothing would top Hohokum for "game that I'd never have any interest in," but whatever this thing is has indeed topped it. How stupid. Hope this is not indicative of what the actual game will be like.

Getting a real VHS (the film) vibe from this.

Also, Dial "nine-eleven"? Does anyone say it that way? It's "nine-one-one", right?

Exactly. 9/11 is the horrible event from 2001. 9-1-1 is who ANYONE pronounces that number.

Posted by JohnB

Thanks for posting this :-)

Posted by Wintermute

Thanks for showing off the teaser Patrick, but, I find peoples reactions to scary sounds on an episode of Ghost Hunters more genuine that yours during this QL. Tone it down please. There is no Oscar for best performance in a Quick Look.

Posted by ch3burashka

Come on guys, the PT Cruiser isn't really all that bad.

Posted by BuddyleeR

At around 10 minutes, an apartment door closed across the alley from my window. It was all GG for me from there.

Posted by Killroycantkill

This looked super cool until it turned into a pixel hunt for picture pieces then the ending to it is like "take x steps then do 4 spins while holding a flashlight to your butt" type of thing. Hope that all gets smoothed out in the final game, or maybe Kojima is going for more obtuse puzzles.

The picture pieces weren't actually necessary to see the real ending, but yeah, the last part of the teaser was intentionally designed to be obtuse because it wasn't supposed to come out that it was a Silent Hill teaser for about a week. It was supposed to be like an ARG. But the internet being what it is, the ending was out by the time I'd even heard it existed.

Posted by Cebbo

That first hallway just screams Fox Engine to me. I know it's easy to say after learning Hideo Kojima has his hands on this; I wish I had seen this before knowing that.

Posted by Stinky51012

This game is bullshit. When I played it NOTHING happened. Just got stuck in the hallway. Looked at everything and tried interacting with everything and NOTHING changed. I feel robbed after watching this...

Edited by anzejk

Patrick, dude, you get really scared really fast. Idk if it's more for the show or for real but if it's for real that's not good for your nerves and heart. Just please, don't have a heart attack, OK? ;)

@cthomer5000: Really bothered me, apparently they need a VO director

Don't know what to tell you, man. Anyone who watches Spookin' knows that I'm genuine about this stuff. I let the games get under my skin, and reactions happen. Just because you don't happen to get scared by stuff doesn't mean other people don't! It's part of the fun.

I played through until I could no longer get the demo to progress. I had my husband try and tell me different thing to do, but I wasn't getting it to work right. Still, it was terrifying.

I think the two things that ended up bothering me the most were (spoiler tags in case someone doesn't want details)

When you progress far enough to where the bloody refrigerator is violently swinging back and forth and there is really frantic crying/screaming kind of noises coming from it. The was just too much, both visually and aurally, to handle. I almost turned the demo off right there. The problem was I thought I had done the right action to progress, but I hadn't, so I was stuck hearing this awful mix of noises and trying to figure out what I had not done. I wanted to get out right then and there, but I stuck through it.

Second was the red hallway when your vision gets all messed up and you're running. The mixture of red light, sounds and visual effects made me almost instantly nauseous. The combination managed to give me a really visceral reaction. It was pretty impressive, even if I didn't want it to continue.

I really liked the teaser, but I felt really awful the entire time. It has a way of totally messing with you. It's really simple, a hallway that just repeats with changes as you progress the "story" but man is it effective in the emotional reactions it instigates in the player.

I thought PT stood for Post Traumatic Stress... Got so far in the demo and nope...

Edited by PhoenixDownPillow

Okay yep this is it. The is the first time for this new gen that I have looked at a game and been all whoa. This is one damn good looking game.

Posted by Gum

YES. If the actual game is as twisted and effed up as this then I'll be more then pleased.

I never said that I don't get scared by stuff. But, neither I nor anyone I know reacts the way you do. Especially those that play and watch a lot of horror games and movies(like you I assume) and thus become somewhat desensitized to that sort of content. I believe you are a real fan of the genre and I appreciate your enthusiasm to entertain. I just don't buy that your reactions are authentic and so choose to not watch more spookin' with scoops(the same reason I don't watch paranormal investigation reality tv). Of course, you don't need to convince me you're not acting. Though it would be great if I could enjoy all of the content produced by Giant Bomb I still get my moneys worth as a premium member.

Edited by AnEternalEnigma

@wintermute: Let's see you play this game in a dark room with a headset on and see if you don't react the same. It did the same thing to me and I don't normally react like that to this kind of stuff. Seriously, do it.

Until then, you sound like a fucking entitled baby with zero social skills. "Wah, I'm paying you money so that gives me a reason to criticize you and call you out for faking." Seriously, if you paying money is the impetus for this, just unsubscribe and save us all from your shitposts. Bad form.

Edited by AdMordem

@wintermute: I love horror and react much worse than Patrick. Watching I'm fine, playing I'm terrible, but love it.

Posted by NecroNeko

@admordem: I had real problems just watching this, I think I'm gonna have to find a friend who wants to see it and watch it with them. I spent half that Spookin' stream peeking at Klepekcam through my fingers.

But then I don't deal with horror well...

Posted by KatyGaGa

Klip Klop should play more games like this and less like Fatal Frame, which is incredibly overrated.

Posted by Borp

@wintermute: Big horror fan here and yeah, his reactions are genuine. This game is terrifying.
