If you a chance to go into the woods, you’re sure of a big surprise – like the new gameplay trailer for The Dark Pictures: Little Hope. Developer Supermassive Games has shared seven minutes of the horror game, revealing a little twist, some interesting symbols, and a taste of how the story’s three timelines will intertwine.
About The Game:
The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope is a survival horror video game played from a third-person perspective in which the player assumes control of five characters who are trapped in a ghost town. Throughout the game, the player needs to choose different dialogue options, which will influence the course of the narrative and the relationships between the protagonists. The game can be played multiple times, as there are multiple endings and multiple scenarios based on the decisions that the players make. Depending on the choices of the players, all characters may die by the end of the story. Action sequences mainly feature quick time events, most of which, if missed, can lead to dire consequences for the characters.
Similar to Man of Medan, the game features two multiplayer modes. “Shared Story” allows two players to play co-operatively online. “Movie Night” allows up to five multiplayers to select their own characters and prompts them to pass the controller at each turn.
THE GAME NEWS:
The video begins with some of characters needing to head into Little Hope for some assistance. Will Poulter’s Andrew and Ellen David’s Angela fall behind, getting lost in some sudden fog, and things only get weirder from there. Strange shapes made out of wood and rocks start appearing along the road, leading to a jump-scare that brings Andrew and Angela face-to-face with Mary, the little dancing girl as we saw in previous trailers. Mary’s a young witch from 1692, the year of the Salem witch trials and the second of three timelines in the game, and the exchange between the three ends as a hooded woman storms off accusing Mary of witchcraft.
The style of conversation that a tree follows much the same structure as The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan, means that there’s two-to-three responses each time, allowing a player to select his emotions and reactions. The more interesting thing is the active camera – players a much larger space to move it around while controlling Andrew. Supermassive CEO Pete Samuels had already commented this is based on players wanting more control. “We have added a new camera system which allows players in certain levels to have full 360 degree control of the camera,” Sandoval told GamesRadar. “Naturally this brought new challenges, but we believe this makes the playing experience a better one.”
