Disappointed that it’s horror, which means I won’t be playing—not a fan of being scared—but I loved Contradiction and the acting/direction/production values that went into it, so hope this does well.

Same. Doing a horror game is a massive waste of the talent at hand here.

Well, I see that I’m not the only one to be torn between my appreciation for the studio’s previous game and my profound distaste for the horror genre (or scaredy-cat nature, if you prefer). Too bad, I was quite excited when seeing the topic title!

I don’t want to make a hasty judgement though, the developer’s website mentions something about “confronting and communicating with the ghosts of Jimmy’s past” to uncover his secret, that sounds intriguing. But I still fear that it will not be the kind of horror I can stomach (I’m OK with Lovecraftian, Victorian, Poe-ian, psychological horror, a few ghosts here and there howling and moving furnitures around, or a demon-worshipping cult plotting the destruction of every living thing, that I’m fine with, but if I have to run for my character’s life from a human psychopath in a hotel that looks like the Shining mansion, only with balloons for added creepiness, I won’t play for more than two minutes).

Well, in the developer’s defence: apparently horror films are among the most fun to make, so that’s one thing. Grin

And FMV isn’t really made for “run or die” situations, so I’m guessing you’ll still have time to do stuff in the game without being in actual danger of facing a “game over” screen.
At least I hope so. Grin
