After watching the multiple videos that @alex, @vinny and @austin_walker did on Contradiction I heard that the village was called Great Budsworth in Cheshire, after going on Google Maps I realised that this village was only 9 miles away from where I work in Middlewich. So today after work I decided to visit Great Budsworth and take a few photos and attempt to make a comparison between the angles used in the game.

I probably could have done more sleuthing but these are the places (that I could find) that stood out to me. I don't know where the Atlas building is or anything in the woods. It was a very nice and quiet village and I hope that nobody gets murdered in Great Budsworth anytime soon.

Awesome photos, also I suggest that the George and Dragon Pub be a new location for giantbomb/beastt meetups!

Next step: re-enact the scenes depicted in the game to create Contradiction: The Movie, based on the hit video game.

For bonus points, advertise this new product as full-motion video.

I'd have gone in but the £14 for a roast dinner put me off.

I didn't want to happen across any potential spoilers, what if the murderer was there?

Should have called the Chief. He'd have given you some hot tips (maybe on local restaurants).

I'm not one of them either, but I threw something together in Paint Shop and used a bunch of instagram-esque photo filters to hide the green screen edges:

For people who could do a better job, you can get their greenscreen sessions in this video:

@karlpilkington: I'm not at my pc to see the credits right now but there were 2 locations mentioned, it's possible the woods and Atlas stuff were at the other town. Or maybe that other location was just interiors, I have no clue. Just tossing that (admittedly incomplete) info out there.

I would like to find that tree, considering I live nearby it might be worth a look...

Somebody in the thread made by the developer said that they lived across the street from the Atlas building; you could go check that thread and see if it's near you or not
