Okay, Frictional Games, what exactly are you teasing us with? I need to know, it doesn't look like what I originally thought.
Not up to speed? Late last year, Frictional Games (SOMA, Amnesia) started teasing a new game on a dedicated website and every so often the video that's on repeat changes. Initially starting as a tiny little cell, it then started to look like a beating heart…only yesterday it grew again and now it looks like it has a tail.
Here's an up to date look at how it has changed from late December last year, up until yesterday:
What do you think it could be? Some sort of unspeakable horror? A cute little animal? Some sort of mutant thing? I'm starting to get a bad feeling about this mysterious entity. It's going to be chasing us down a dark hallway isn't it.
Not only that, there's a new icon in their social media list. This one is not a link, but if you hover over it the HTML title pops up with a mysterious string - which is actually the ID of a YouTube video. In fact, the source of their teaser website has another video ID in the meta tags. The first one is from January 10 titled "Box 7 Reel 2, Partial Success" which has some freaky sounds and the other is from January 21 titled "Box 52, Tape 16" which shows a poor quality home-video style recording of some rocks, one of which has some kind of pattern on it.
I'll be keeping a close eye on it, always enjoy Frictional's work. If you've not played SOMA yet, now is a good time with the Steam sale as it's 85% off. Their older games are also on sale which you can find on Steam here.
