PS4 story-horror Until Dawn drops August 25th.
Truth be told, Until Dawn has never precisely blown my skirt up. If you're doing a game that is entirely narrative-driven, with player interaction limited to slight exploration and quicktime events, your game better be fucking gorgeous. This is why the Quantic Dream titles are always so stunning - they pretty much have to be, because if you're asking someone to play a game in which gameplay comes last, it had better be a visual feast.
I don't find Until Dawn all that gorgeous. Nothing, graphically, really impresses after bearing witness to The Order: 1886, and it was also a cover-based shooter.
So myeh. I might give it a miss.
'Course, I do want to try it. And I feel the butterfly representing the narrative branches is a pretty smart choice.
That's kinda' clever.
Also, points for Peter Stromare. Best Devil Ever.
