Until Dawn PS4

Heavy Rain was packed with some pretty cringe-inducing moments, but they weren’t exactly intentional. In the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive Until Dawn, developer Supermassive Games has set out to create an experience inspired by dodgy slasher teen movies – and on the evidence of this 20 minute showing, it’s absolutely nailed it.

The dialogue in this Gamescom 2014 demo has just enough dumb angst to raise a smile, without completely undermining the spooky atmosphere at the core of the experience – in fact, there’s a terribly cheap jump scare a few minutes in that almost had this editor in hospital. If the studio can just tidy up those animations, this could be a real goofy good time.
