Until Dawn
Developed by: Supermassive Games
Published by: Sony Computer Entertainment
Platform: PS4
Release Date: August 25, 2015

Review By: Kelly Anderson

I LOVE this game! I just finished it and already cannot wait to play it all over again and with hundreds of endings, I can play it several times and get different outcomes! Before I can play it again, I better slow myself down and tell everyone about why I love this game!

Until Dawn is an interactive drama survival horror adventure game that takes place in a fictional British Columbia snow lodge. The lodge is owned by the Washington family where eight friends come together for the one year anniversary of the tragic disappearance of their two friends, twins Hannah and Beth Washington.

Throughout the game you get to play as all eight characters. It’s your turn to prove that you are smarter than the stereotypical dumb horror movie victim. I have read that it is possible to keep all eight characters alive and it’s also possible to have all eight die. Right off the bat, you find out how important every decision that you make influences unknown consequences, known as the Butterfly Effect. With the awesome auto-save system it makes it so you can’t go back and redo your decisions unless you want to start the game over or just start one of the ten chapters over.There are plenty of decisions to make in this game, whether it is a moral decision to kill or save another character or a physical one like climbing your way out of a mine. Throughout the game, it tracks your relationship status with other players. You want as many good relationships with the other characters as you can because that relationship just may help you out when it comes to survival. I learned that sometimes deciding to not make an action tends to be your best answer, which helped me out a bunch!

There are quite a few quick time events that can be a tad stressful trying to make a decision to escape your attacker. One of the many choices is when you chose between hiding or running from the aggressor. If you do hide, be prepared to not move for a bit, although it seems like an eternity. I was finding myself holding my breath almost as if I really were the character who was hiding from the bad guy. When you do stay still you don’t want to touch a single control, if you happen to be resting your controller on your chest or tummy and take a too deep of breath, you may have just put the character in jeopardy. I barely moved and then my attempt to escape was messed up due to the gyroscope being so sensitive.

There is lots to explore in this game, whether it is inside the huge lodge, the dark woods, mines and caves or other surrounding buildings. When you are not running away from the attacker, be on the lookout for these glowing balls of light that let you know there is an object you can interact with. This hunt for the glowing balls was quite fun for me. I wish I would’ve paid more attention to these balls in the beginning. These objects will unlock clues and warnings for you to progress in the game. You will also come across these totem pieces that reveal possible outcomes in the future for the characters, which I thought was a unique feature in the game. I really liked how throughout the game there was a variety of weapons and how well they come in handy later on.

The graphics in Until Dawn are absolutely phenomenal! The snow falling down was beautiful and realistic as well as how the dust particles looked when there was a light shining on them. The cinematic movements and human faces were so real, it felt as though I was there in the lodge with them experiencing the same fear they felt. I enjoyed the writing and some rare humor. All eight personalities were different like in a horror movie.

This is a great game with true scary moments and a huge replay value, definitely worth every penny! Well I am going to go get my scare on and see how many characters I can save this time around!

When a demonic spirit takes up residence in a creepy doll a young family is pushed to its limits trying to rid themselves of the malevolent spirit. First why the fuck would you even want that doll, even before it is haunted it is scary as shit then it is possessed and it looks even worse. What kind of messed up mom would give her kid this creepy piece of shit.

IMDB Did You Know
The real annabelle doll was a raggedy ann doll.

The baby mobile hanging over the crib plays the same tune as the music box from the conjuring.

The real Annabelle Doll was given to Donna (a college student at the time) by her mother in 1970. Her and her roommate Angie noticed that the doll would move subtlety, then within a few weeks became fully mobile moving from one room to another while they were gone.

The director of this film is also the cinematographer for Child’s Play 3 a film about a killer doll named Chucky.

Director John R. Leonetti and Producer Peter Safran claimed that supernatural phenomena had occurred on the set during filming.

Director John R. Leonetti’s first theatrically released film since Mortal Kombat: annihilation.

Hey guys!!! This week Steve plays Slender: The Arrival while Erik and Kelly watch. A few things you have to remember when traveling in the woods: 1 bring a damn flash light, or steal one from an abandoned house with creepy drawings on the wall, 2 always follow that bloodcurdling scream and 3 record everything but when your electronics start going crazy make sure you turn around and walk calmly away.
