Yikes!

EDIT: FINALLY! I Beat that Quest with a Bat!

OH GOD NO.

Looks interesting. Don't know what I think about that orchestral score though. Seems like it could be better, and creepier, without it. But maybe it's just there for the trailer.

Posted by EveretteScott

I am interested, tell me more, video game.

Posted by AstroCow

Evilly terrifying.

Spookin with Scoops is going to be awesome in 2013

Posted by Krullis

Honestly, if this creepy guy was the only enemy in this entire game, and he just chased you down the whole time, it'd be amazing.

Think of something like Nemesis from RE3, except there are no zombies, just Nemesis hunting your ass down. Oh God, think of the police station scene when he jumps through the glass. WHAT IF THAT COULD HAPPEN AT ANY TIME!?

If they're going to keep using heavy orchestral strokes every time something scary happens in the actual game then I'll quickly get bored. I've started playing Condemned recently and nothing is more terrifying than hearing a crazy hobo's heavy breathing while stalking you in the dark. No orchestral music, just total dreading silence. Or maybe go the Silent Hill route and use butt-fucking bizarre sound effects and music to make the player feel uncomfortable as all hell.

If the trailer had no orchestral music, it would've been ten times more effective. Making your game go the Dead Space route is maybe not the wisest of choices when selling your horror game.

I like it all except for the demon. It looks a little too much like a video game monster. I know that's what it is, but you know what I mean. Otherwise looks interesting. I'll be keeping an eye on it.

I'd be quite into this idea. Probably won't be the case in the final game, but I'll still be happy if they won't give the player the chance to blast him and his monster friends to bits with dozens of weapons, but instead make you run, hide and use the environment as your weapon at ze most. Even if that would turn this into a copy of Amnesia.

Well that didn't pan out too well. Wonder how they'll handle these situations in terms of getting killed. Do you have health or are you just automatically fucked once you're cornered?

Not that I'll ever play such a spooky game.

@Packie: I'll assume the orchestral stuff is for the trailers and you won't be hearing that every time an enemy appears. If anything, I'm a little surprised they're giving away the creature design in the trailer. Kinda kills the "fear of the unknown" that these types of experiences thrive upon.

Have fun, Patrick!

Posted by RedRocketWestie

I'm intrigued by the premise, namely: WHY ARE YOU THERE, PLAYER CHARACTER? THIS SEEMS LIKE A MONUMENTALLY BAD IDEA.

Posted by Dietomaha

Wow that looks...surprisingly awesome. Surely not actual gameplay though, judging by all the hand on wall moments and smooth door openings (because that doesn't happen in games, you see).

Posted by alternate

That cap reminds me of the lame ending to the first Paranormal Activity film.

Posted by Osaladin

Now these are the types of games Spookin with Scoops needs.

Posted by demontrace

I like the fact that some guy goes into an asylum, knowing people have been killed there, and arms himself with nothing but his trusty camera, in HD!! Woo. As soon as he enters the place, he can tell things are in here with him, and STILL doesn't think to arm himself with something. Instead he continues on with his camera.

Great idea buddy! Future Darwin award if I ever saw one, and then I'm expected to actually play as this guy? No thanks.

Posted by Stimpack

He held onto that camera that whole time?

Posted by RenMcKormack

you guys. Since it was previously 1994 all over again with the fighting games and the adventure games and the RTS'es. Can it be 1998-2003 all over again with RAW (TM) Horror Titles?

Posted by Lyfeforce

I guess I shouldn't be surprised with the pedigree of the people involved in the game, but damn does this game look pretty and seem like a scary Mirror's Edge.

Posted by Icemo

This game would be so scary if it was played in that camera view the whole time with no orchestral music.

Posted by Tikicobra

This looks pretty great, but if it comes down to choosing between this and the new Amnesia then I'd definitely go for Amnesia.

Posted by Tsuchikage

Scary, but not actual gameplay.

Posted by verbalmedal

Im scared as hell right now.

Combo breaker for "celebrate Halloween" sub-headers.

Traditional weaponry didn't not help those soldiers much.

Posted by ShinjiEx

Consoles need these kind of horror games.

Posted by chilipeppersman

this looks awesome, cant wait for a demo or something.

Posted by paisan13

This game looks great. But I have to agree with some of the others here, the demon looks kind a silly, a bit like the vamps in 30 days of night. How about if the enemys would be just humans, psychopaths from the asylum that got lose? In my mind that would be a lot more scary ^_^

Posted by Yorkin

I'm usually a total wuss when it comes to horror games. But for some reason this game doesn't seem scary to me at all. I don't know why.

Horror as a genre wouldn't exist without people who make really poor decisions.

Mirrors Edge + Zombies? Sign me up!

Posted by jakob187

THOROUGHLY interested. If that's any form of actual gameplay, then I'm pretty psyched about it. You can see the influences from stuff that these people have previously worked on.

Posted by OllyOxenFree

Dat breathing.

Posted by beeftothetaco

This looks silly.

Posted by reignofevil666

This looks sick.

Edited by mlarrabee

Well, that little guy looks friendly!

And Mortal Kombat Ultra?! Count me in...

Edited by CornBREDX

I'm going to watch the trailer but first impression from that title card or whatever it's called- it looks like the cover for Quarantine. 
 
Impression after watching edit: I am intrigued, but if the game has as bad pacing and suspense as this trailer it may not be all that great. In concept it's cool (looks like it intends to follow suit with Amnesia, Penumbra, or clock tower in that flight is the best option) but this trailer plays it a lot like a Modern American horror film. In that I mean... it's just not scary. 
 
Could be cool though. I'm always down for another horror game.  
I like the video camera (seemingly for light?). A lot of interesting concepts here.

not every soldier operates at the same level of skill. Plus those guys might have not really known what they were getting into, and it might have been a veritable ambush. Your character at least sees the signs of what happened previous to his arrival, not to mention I'm sure stories have flown about what occurred in there, which caused your character to be interested.

At the very least the guy could grab some improvised weaponry like in Condemned.

This is true. Then again I think there are some horror genre games/movies that have people who didn't necessarily make bad decisions, just were victims of unfortunate circumstances, such as being in the wrong place at the wrong time. This guy, on the other hand, has clearly chosen to be in this place, and probably has some idea that some bad shit went down in there.

Posted by Waffley

Looks great, but I really hope it doesn't rely on jump scares. Paranoia through immersion is a much more respectable path of horror.

Posted by PhantomGardener

No fucking way I'm playing this game by myself.

Oh, totally. To be honest, I find the wrong time/wrong place kind of horror far more unnerving. The idea of a home invasion (be it aliens, wolfmangs or just armed criminals) gets under my skin a lot more than the "let's all chill in this haunted house for the night, you guys!" trope, for example.

@mlarrabee: MKUltra as well as Operation Paperclip were real things just so you know.

Posted by AuthenticM

I will be playing this.

Traditional weaponry never helps faceless redshirts.
