Note:

I'm not sure if it's forbidden for me to post this since it's a complete recreation of a product that's not available anymore, so if this thread should be against the rules, just delete it please :)

With that said, I sure as hell won't touch it with a weak heart as mine, but I'm sure a lot of users here are going to be ecstatic about this. So here you go!

Been waiting for this for a long time. Finally can toss the idea of dishing out like $400 for a PT PS4. VR too, this is going to be amazing.

Looking fairly faithful so far of what I've played, though I never got far in the original.

Only thing really noticeable so far is the opening doesn't feature the camera low to the ground and the character getting up, you start upright.

I stared at her for a while, creeped out

then she took a step forward, and i closed the game
Lol, reminds me of when i got the game Amnesia. First time i heard something i hid in a tall dresser. I can peak out, and i can hear whatever the f it is out there. Somewhere close. Making scary noises. So i have reinstalled over the years and each time i get to the same point. Hide in that dresser. Hear shit and log off. Every game like it since, i stop right when the first scary part is about to happen. I did the same with Resident Evil 7. lol

This is crazy! I bought my PS4 after PT was taken down, and I was always bummed out I missed out on that experience.

Has there been any comparisons? How close is it to the original?

How could they possibly have replicated all the procedural cues and scripting going on without access to the code of the original demo? Is this just a remake 1:1 graphically with a similar scripting sequence or did they actually replicate all the cues and scripting from the original release?

I was going to reply that I will walk up to it and see what it does, but it's dark, and I don't feel like doing that right now. I couldn't get to that part. Had an urge to quit the game.

It's been a long time since I played a scary game (Demon's Souls prison and the areas after that). I'm a scaredy cat.

Downloaded. I'll check it out tomorrow morning.
That sounds like a good plan haha, lights, windows open, sun shining through, no shadows.

Bugged for me. The trigger to get the door to open on loop 2 does not work.

EDIT: Nevermind. He added a small hint nearby that explains how to make it work.

There's a few differences here and there, but by the author's own admission, they brought over model and sound assets from the original game to ensure as close to the original vision as possible. Unfortunately, that also makes it even more likely that the game could be taken down.

They also wanted to recreate the opening and ending cutscenes, but found that the time required to do so would have taken too long for them. This is as far as they got before deciding to release the game without the Reedus reveal.


Still, possibly the most faithful recreation so far!

Happened to me as well, had to restart to get the picture frame to appear on the ground to properly get loop 2 to function.
