Frictional Games Teases New Game With Trailer

Posted by , | Views: 6,911
So Frictional Games are at it again, as reported earlier about a teaser website for their next game having a countdown which has now ended with a trailer. It doesn't look like it will be the only one either, the teaser website has eight spaces with the first one taken by the trailer below.


Colour me in excited paint, sci-fi stuff really appeals to me of course so you can bet we will keep covering this to keep you up to date.

This is accompanied by some fragmented text to go along with it.
QuoteThe machine has the appearance of a heavily modified monitor fixed to a massive nest of cables and controls. Machinist Peter Strasky found the contraption during a salvage mission the screen rolled and flickered, but it shut down as it was pulled out from the container.

None of the crew stepped forward to take credit, but the construction suggests since Thabo is unavailable for questioning, the machine's origin remains a mystery.

Considering the lack of information and the general unease it has started to cause, the machine will be disassembled.

screen lit up and showed distorted schematics. After trying different switches and keys, the oblique levers were found to be torsion attenuation controls which could stabilize the pict revealing a complex set of instructions. The machine is now under quarantine.

AM Engineer Imogen Reed has asked for an exception Special permission granted.

So what do we think folks, will it be another horror game or something different? My bets are on a sci-fi horror I just don't see them straying from what they know just yet.

After some of the mixed responses to pigs, it is probably for the best that they do something fresh. And even if it is another horror game, this does look fresh for them.

can't wait...seems interesting.
and Pigs was fine also, not as good as dark decent though, but still good imo.

I haven't actually played Pigs yet -- but this is pretty exciting, I love spacey Sci Fi and horror on top of that is even better!

They didn't actually make AMFP, the Chinese Room did. I also think that game is fine but not as good.

I am not saying that pigs was necessarily bad, just that it showed that it is time to move on (I myself have not played it yet).

As I said in the first report, the video reminds me to In Memoriam (aka Missing since January). I haven't played to experience 112, but maybe this game will be similar to it. I loved the Penumbra saga and Amnesia, so I can't wait for this new game

Am I the only one reminded of SCP Foundation? Either way this makes me incredibly excited

That ending! Now I'm intrigued.

Man, this trailer is awesome, I am very excited about this game, I want more, please!

Yes, I am aware of that. It does not change the fact that the Amnesia franchise is showing some fatigue and that it is probably good for Frictional to go in a new direction.
