Horror survival has been on the up swing recently which for this gamer has been boy a blessing for me and a curse on my wallet.
Until Dawn by Supermassive games was originally suppose to come out for he PS3 but was delayed and they scrapped that to make it a PS4 exscullsive.
It’s a cabin in the woods slasher story. After the death of two characters in the very beginning, a year later the friends of the victims are all invited back to the snow covered lodge and picked off one by one by the killer.
Now WHO gets killed off is left up too YOU the gamer, as the whole game is a choose your own adventure video game.
Choose Your Own Adventure was a book series that has been around for years where as the reader takes different paths in order to complete the story. The choises you make effect gsme out come. The game calls it The Butterfly Effect, not the movie staring Ashton Kutcher and Amy Smart.
The game is filled with horror tropes and things you love and hate. It’s horny teenagers and 20 something year olds at their worst. Ex bf and gf who still pine for each other check, bf trying to get his gf alone and naked check, the blonde character runs around naked and only wearing a towel check, creepy older character delivering cryptic messages check, ancient Indian burial check. You have to love the writers really being fans of Horror movies and their silly tropes.
Hayden Panettiere from Nashville and Heroes, Peter Stormare from The Black List 22 Jump Street and more, Brett Dalton from Agents of Shield and many more make up the voice acting talent as well as full motion 3D scans of their faces to make the characters seem alive.
The game has 100 different paths you can take to achieve what you need in the game, with so many different variables Until Dawn will keep you entertained for hours. It’s worth picking up if you love Horror survivial.
