"The story is centered around Jason Longfield" "Abandoned and not remembering how he got there"

Reading is hard.

Why should I need to read anything if the trailer did it's job. I watched the trailer, the promotional material for the game and as I said what they chose to show was an american whiny girls voiceover and a trite anti religious plot. Hop off my posts playboy.

Can I just say that I fucking love the conspiracy theory that this is a Kojima game?

I mean what other developer can get such insane traction? That's right - no one.

In fairness the coincidences didn't help.
The lead developer has the same initials.
The company's initials is BB
Company is based in the Netherlands, same as Guerilla Games. DS used Decima Engine and had collaborated with Kojima.

The company should have kept quiet for a few days at least, or until after the pre-order link goes up on the PS store.

Game actually looks alright but they really screw up the trailer, it feels like its was made by a beginner

Sorry but... where is the game?
On YouTube is full of videos on "Create a forest in 1 hour with UE4" like this.

Sadness next gen.

"Quick! What you got?"

"Erm...Some forest, shadow of main character and fireplace. Why?"

"Trailer."

If this is some kind of stunt, maybe it won't be so bad. Honestly, if it had a voiceover like the first couple Gears of War trailers (either the one with the childs voice or especially the one with the woman and the "humans do what they do best, destroy" speech that I couldn't find on YT anywhere), saying the same things but with some ambiance it would be a big improvement. The premise isn't awe inspiring, maybe even tired, but at the same time not bad for a horror game.

Guy on purple board said the trailer is based on this Unreal Engine asset pack for $35. So if this Blue Box studio is actually still alive, their trailer is an asset download.

I was given a warning by the mods. I'll just post it here then. There's not much he said though.


One of the comments in youtube says it's made by only 10 persons. Is that true? Are there info about the developers of this game?

Yeah 10 people from their own site


I like the way that dude speaks, he seems to have issues about whether it will look like that in game. Especially given the models hands. Need to see more, performance was a bit yikes on the camp fire and end.

Tweeting in Japanese. I'm more confident than ever this is Kojima fucking with us. Actively messing with us to downplay expectations. I expect this is have an update during E3 with a demo.

Sony needs to Abandon the Abandoned. Sorry. But they usually grab and market better stuff than this. Not sure what's happening.

I think bluebox is a cover and abandoned is a fake trailer for another game.
It is all wierd and their website seems all broken. Very strange to make a market push for a no name developer with a website that says ”404 not found” when clicking any one of the tabs on the top.
