Best get clean knickers: Dead Space 2 will “scare the pants off you”, according to Visceral producer Rich Briggs.
“It was 100 percent white-knuckle tension,” Briggs told G4, “and we did a lot of research after the fact and people were coming back and saying, ‘I never even listened to the logs sometimes because I was so scared of something jumping me out of a dark corner,’ and we don’t want people to be sacrificing their understanding of the story and their enjoyment of the environment because they’re always so scared.
“To Steve’s [Papoutsis, executive producer for DS2] point, yeah, we are still gonna be a horror game, yes, we are still Dead Space, we’re gonna scare the pants off you as many times as we can, but Issac’s been through this before, so he’s a little bit more capable this time around, he’s going to have some times where he can actually have an epic moment and it is like a rollercoaster ride.”
Yeah, knickers. Go buy some.
Dead Space 2 is out within the first three months of calendar 2011 for PS3, 360, PC and handhelds.
