Re: Stairwells...

I agree. When I think back on my earliest memories of Resident Evil, the thing that sticks out to me the most are the loading screens, with the doors and stairs. I (falsely) assumed that they deliberately made the loading screens like that because they would put some jump scares in, and every time I...

Re: Research and Learn From Other Games

I often play other games for reference (both good and bad), so maybe I'll check it out. Right now, my game queue is a bit long though. I just finished Silent Hill: Homecoming and Amnesia: Machine for Pigs. Next up is Outlast! :) Just...completely out of curiosity, what did you think of A Machine Fo...

Much ado about running

Matt posed this question earlier in his dev diary: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ANfBfy66YY However, the number of comments and pageviews on his videos are always not as high as they should be. So, since it's an extremely important decision of potentially game-changing importance, I figured it des...

Little tiny subtle things.

Something that I was thinking about recently that I think not enough horror games do is make little changes that the player probably isn't going to notice. What made me realize it is Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, which I thought was brilliant, even though I know it's not everyone's cup of tea. On my ...

Re: What should be the name?

I was thinking about that upon looking at the kickstarter tiers, and I decided to turn to good ol' fashioned western mythology for ideas. For the Male character, I have a few ideas - -Murphy, after Morpheus, the Roman god of dreams -Sam, after Somnus, the Roman personification of sleep (think "the s...

Re: Being Sick and Nightmares

I've had a nightmare very similar to your shark bite one! It was only once, but it was very haunting. I was driving my car, doing something from some other segment of the dream, when all the sudden, my girlfriend screams at me. I look in the back seat, and my girlfriend is back there cradling some b...

Re: A Leather-bound Daymare

"Daymare"? Is that sort of like an intense, intrusive thought?

Tubes in my arms

Well, someone's gotta start the first thread, so I figure I might as well share with the entire internet the worst recurring nightmare I've ever had. First, a little background on the phobia that started this - I have a handful of phobias, but nearing the top of the list, if not THE top of the list,...
