Two Girls, Many Cups, And One Horrifying Tragedy In Nevermind - House of Horrors
Zorine and Jess tackle the Alpha of a game that detects your heart rate and adjusts the game's horror accordingly. Expect eyeballs, lies, and a ton of cups.
Alright, the game has some nice ideas, but to me it doesn't feel like a horror game. It's got more of an adventure game with some little creepy elements. But my biggest issue with the game is the lack of a story. Just correcting people's mental problems seems a bit dull. I like horror games with great story-telling.
Bah, I had to visit GameSpot's YouTube page for this.
Some sloppy-ass video archiving that GameSpot has.
Guess we'll just have to wait for it to be uploaded to Youtube within the next day or 2, well for those of us it doesnt work for, dont understand why it works for some and not others though.
It seems that it only works if the quality is switched to HD... damn this slow internet connection :(
Black screen for me anyone else getting this? it doesn't load after the ad, and I can't watch the heart monitor not working properly lol.
Missed the stream, live is more fun, but this game is pretty interesting so I'm glad I watched this. The puzzles were pretty cool, and I like that the story content dealt with something that would be quite harsh in reality without giving it a perfect resolution. Kinda feels real given the setting, you don't just magically cure it, but you clarify and expose it. I wonder what the stories of the other patients will be. Might be nice to see variety, such as stories which are far less tragic where the game is able to show that regardless it has a heavy impact on the patient, to them it is a "big deal".
The disappointing part of course, the heart monitor. Technical problems aside, the way the game plays, I don't see much of a dynamic element there to be affected by the heart rate. Guess we'll find out later, as whether it works out or not, it think it will certainly be something that gets a lot of coverage and testing.
@hystavito how did you watch? the video has been broken....
