TGS 2007; Twin Peaks, sorry, Rainy Woods trailer
Whilst many people are comparing Rainy Woods to Resident Evil, Saw and other similar 'gore-fest' movies/games, I'm here to tell you where Rainy Woods really comes from.
It's clearly a complete rip-off of, sorry, I mean homage to Twin Peaks. There's a coffee loving FBI agent. There's some 'little people'. There's a room surrounded by red curtains. Have I said enough yet?
Despite the obvious David Lynch references, Rainy Woods looks like a reasonable survival horror game. The graphics don't seem as crisp, clear and visceral as Resident Evil 5 but if you like this sort of thing it should be a blast.
Of much more interest to me is the trailer for Imabikisou that I found on the Japanese PS Store. Billed as a 'sound novel', it reminds me of the Japanese classic 'small children with long hair over their faces' horrors like Ringu and Ju-On (Ring and Grudge to those not in the know). You can check out the video yourself at the Japanese PS Store or read this great preview at Eurogamer.
