    Looking foward to seeing what they do with the setting and environs in this game. Should be interesting and hopefully scary.

    Hopefully the monsters are more scarier than in SOMA, the only monster that was kinda scary in that game was the fleshy one that followed you by sound.

    That dude is always interesting to listen to. He's also one of the most Swedish Swedes who ever Swed(ed).

    It's great fun to hear from someone who tries to hone their craft, really think about what they do and not try to take the easy way out.

    It's kinda crazy to think about how different the whole horror genre is nowadays compared to pre-Amnesia. I mean, Penumbra was around, was obviously similar in many ways and was scary as fuck but it really felt like Amnesia changed things a lot. And nowadays, horror games are absolutely everywhere. Most are completely terrible, but I feel the market is so saturated that it affects even the good games in a negative way. Hope that Rebirth can manage to stand out.

    Is it me or new Amensia looks kind of... not impressive/outdated??
    I dont want to sound like a graphics whore but I've seen many indie horror games like that with better graphics and art direction that flopped hard.

    I am huge fan of Frictional Games, but damn, this look worse than SOMA. Its like this game was made by some kind of Team B with much smaller budget.


    Like, this talented russian??? guy alone is making horror games in Unity on potato budget that looks far more impressive:

    Not to mention mind blowing looking horror games made in Unreal

    There has been leaps between their game series, first from Penumbra to Amnesia, and then from Amnesia to Soma. Expectations are up in the air, but me, I hoped they would taker another leap rather than to go backwards and return to Amnesia. It was good at the time, but that niche it occupied has been filled with so many indie titles since then, and many of them are of high quality. I think it was P.T. that really kicked that into overdrive, they no longer stand out. In so many ways this project makes it seem like they are going in the wrong direction. Maybe it will get by on brand awareness, but my instincts tell me that this won't have the impact that even Soma did.
    Yes, and it goes further than just graphics.

    It's out tomorrow but I'm gonna have to find the right time, mood, and concentration to fully submerge myself into this special experience. The game deserves to be played with fullest attention.
