Until Dawn - PS4 Horror Game (2015)

"Until Dawn" is a new slasher/horror game, done in the same style as Heavy Rain.
It basically acts like an interactive movie.
There is no checkpoints or continues, when your character dies, he/she stays dead until the next game. Instead you jump to the next character/victim.
Depending on the character you play, and what choices you make, the outcome can be very different every time you play the game.

All the graphics are in-game, using the same engine as "Killzone - Shadow Fall".

Gameplay:

Teaser Trailer:

Too bad you canīt play the killer

Yes I have had my eye on this one for a while - I did recently upgrade from a PS3 to a PS4 and am very excited to check this out as soon as it releases. Right now all my gaming time is taken up with the new Dragon Age - awesome game if you like RPGs.

Looks great! Although, I hope it's not all "choose your own adventure" based.

This is definitely one of Sony's exclusives I lament not being able to play, being an Xbox owner. Even after hearing some criticisms about the way the player interacts with the game. Everything they mention sounds like it would make the experience more fun and immersive.

This one and Bloodborn look so rad!

Here is the full playthrough, of the demo:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InhV7glyMl0

Notice the movie posters inside that home theater
Graham Reznick, the writer of this game, was the sound designer on those films, and also was the second unit director on the Ti West films.

The music during the chase scenes has a bit of Harry Manfredini vibe to it
No info about who the composer is.

Looks pretty good. I was burned on The Evil Within, so I'll hold off on this until I read more about it.

Burned? Does it suck?

It's decent enough. Throughout my play-through, I flip flopped on loving it to hating it.

There is too much disconnect between levels which diminishes the story and breaks you out of any immersive investment. The controls are clunky and there is a fair bit of trial and error.

On the plus side, the levels are designed really well and the graphics are extremely well done. Despite there being a fragmented narrative, the game does have a great creepiness to it.

I'm still on the fence on DLC.

Alien Isolation on the other hand is a masterpiece.

Gotcha, thanks. I tend to be a little more forgiving than most. I'm sure I'll pick it up at some point when the price drops a little more. A lot people knocked Darryl's Walking Dead game and I actually really enjoyed it. Ooo, I forgot about Alien Isolation. I'll grab that at some point too. I'm still playing catchup so I had the wife grab me Assassin's Creed III and Dead Space III for cheap cheap. Got Jericho coming in the mail too for next to nothing.

Nice! I too quite enjoyed the Darryl Walking Dead game!

I gave up on the game, the controls and the camera kept pissing me off, the latter cause of the character being way too close to the camera, almost blocking my view when I was sneaking around etc.
Iīm amazed the neighbors didnīt call the cops on me, when I unleashed my anger upon the game

Had high hopes for the game, since I loved his earlier games, like Resident Evil 4.
I might give it another try later on.

Alien Isolation sure is a masterpiece.
The build up is slow and nice, and then all hell breaks loose, in a very satisfying way.
It made me scream like a little girl

This. For a game that forces you to use stealth, there aren't many areas to remain hidden. I found the graphics to be unimpressive, though if the gameplay were better, I would have overlooked it. I screamed at the TV constantly until I had enough and sold it to Amazon.

Here is an update on the Slasher Vol 1: Summer Camp video game coming out- I think it sounds and looks pretty cool (I am sure this game was brought up somewhere on this site but could not find it so I just posted it here) :
