Until Dawn builders Supermassive Games in the present day introduced that they’re delaying the second chapter of The Dark Pictures Anthology, Little Hope. The realities of a 200-person workforce working from house imply yeah, little bit of a hold-up. Previously due this summer season, the second of their eight interactive horror tales is now anticipated within the autumn. Hey, that’s a much more becoming season for unsuspecting school college students to go to a small American city with a historical past of murderous witch hunts.
Pete Samuels, the CEO of Supermassive Games (to not be confused with Supergiant Games obvs, the makers of Bastion), mentioned in today’s statement:
“Our priority has been to keep people safe, and that includes actors and stage crews on whose talent we depend so heavily, other workforces external to our business who all help to create the games we make, and all of the talented people that work within our studio. We will continue to follow government and industry body advice and will only embark on any element of development when such advice tells us that it is safe to do so.”
Sensible. With Supermassive’s flavour of digital horror film so reliant on movement seize and voice appearing, yep, that’ll be an issue too. For now, this trailer from April exhibits a few of what’s ready in Little Hope:
I dug The Dark Pictures Anthology’s predecessor, the PlayStation-exclusive Until Dawn, however by no means obtained round to this one. What I did see appeared much less fascinating? Our Sin was dissatisfied the game spend a lot time in dingy equivalent corridors, however was total happy in her Man Of Medan review.
“I rarely get to play interactive fiction with such strong production values, especially with all the variation and replay value on offer,” she mentioned. “I’m on board. I enjoyed this one, and if Supermassive Games continue on trend, I’m optimistic for the rest of the series.”
Witches will certainly get me wanting once more. Good VVitch-y English accent there too.
