Even though kotaku Editor John Walker would “definitely” recommend 2010’s Survival Horror amnesiahe can’t forget how two scenes made him feel.
“The first is that scene at the beginning where you walk down a boring hallway and it ends with a cave in where the ceiling collapses,” he told me. “So you’re just like, ‘Ah, well, dead end’ and you turn to go back.
But as you turn around, a hideous visage appears in the corridor in front of you for a split second. It’s gone before you can really register whether you’ve seen it or not, and it terrifies that Shit out of me.” John’s messages confirm that there’s a spooky story to be told over a platform as strict as Slack
And then there’s the invisible monster that cements amnesia as possessing what John calls the “spookiest bit in the game,” barring thief 3I’ve ever played.”
“You’re in this flooded hallway and there are tables and chairs scattered on the floor, but you can hear those footsteps,” he said. “If you even touch the water, she suddenly speed get up and fetch louder when something comes crashing at you. But there is nothing!”
And then you see the splashes in the water where his feet must be! and you crawl scrambleto get on a table and out of the water. It’s one of those moments where I have to bend forward until my face touches the monitor, in my effort to move forward faster and climb to the top, my heart is racing and pure panic has my fingers twitching with me struggling to use the mouse and keyboard.”
