It's kind of crazy how a single demo that isn't even available anymore continues to fuel a large portion of horror titles, but here we are nearly seven years later and developers seemingly can't get enough of it. We are talking about P.T., of course, which newly announced PlayStation 5 and PS4 game Evil Inside is very clearly inspired by. In fact, the corridor detailed in the trailer above looks incredibly similar to that famous hallway, right down to the balcony featuring a ghostly appearance. The game's out on 25th March 2021 for both consoles, so there's not long to wait until we find out if this is just a shameless rip-off or if it's actually doing something of its own.
At least the YouTube description gives us something to work with: "Evil Inside is a first-person psychological horror game. After the death of his mother and the arrest of his father for it, Mark decides to contact her using the Spiritual board. But it fades away, and here is when all begins... Mark will face his greatest fears to discover the truth." Poor old Mark. If you're itching to give the game a go right now, a free prologue can be downloaded via Steam through the link. Are you going to make Evil Inside your next purchase? Decide in the comments below.
A swinging light, a flickering ghost on a balcony, even a well at the end? Impressive job packing multiple cliche's in a 1 minute 47 second walk down a hallway.
Even though this is a just a teaser, doesn’t seem very impressive
Let's have a reboot of the 7th Guest
Thanks for the prologue info. I did not know that.
On an entirely unrelated note.. where's the new PSVR games coverage? Surely I didn't miss it.
this looks good, but unfortunately I have to many pre-orders lined up in the coming months and will be quite busy with Outriders, Returnal, RE8 and Ratched sooo this is going to have to wait lol
I'll give it to Kojima: not many people could inspire the creation of a new horror game subgenre from a brief demo meant to tease the release of something else.
Remember when some on here dismissed PT as one of the game's of the PS4 era "because it was a demo" yet look how many games it's inspired in the past 5 years.
As usual it looks janky and cheesy as heck. Guaranteed it will be full of horror clichés and jump scares.
Will I buy it....... Yeah probably... Sighhh
Can we stop getting P.T. clones? There wasn't even a full game, we didn't even know what the final product was going to be.
@Gmork___ just wait for RE8, it'll be better
Geeze, it was a teaser demo, not even close to the full game I'm assuming, ripping off a demo over and over again, here's a thought, someone make a game that actually like Silent Hill
There’s also “Visage”—has anyone played that one? Thoughts?
:: shrugs :: I dunno, I think it looks good. I was watching Alison Road and that got cancelled. Was watching Visage and I am waiting to pull the trigger this weekend because it’s on sale. And now this.
To me, I still need something that plays like PT and is actually a finished game.
Right now Visage looks like the best choice and it rated well, to boot. Now we have this as an option.
I count 2 games and 1 of them isn’t even out yet so the market is not saturated and is in need of some pants wetting.
Count me in.
@3MonthBeef Seriously, it is sad that they are trying to just jump on the bandwagon for money. Another comment said it and I'll say it as well, make a ******* game like Silent Hill if you're going to bandwagon off a demo of an unreleased game.
I do like the look of this game and it is something I would buy and play, does anyone know how much this game will cost?? I have looked for a price but can't see one. Thanks 😀
@ChromaticDracula Same here and if you dont like clichés then you better stay away from horror. 🤪
Absolutely shameless lifting from PT there, garbage.
Most derivative trailer I've ever seen.
They've literally added nothing original themselves, the title rips off Resident Evil and then they just badly recreated the hall from PT with added generic scary clown and chucked the well and girl from the Ring for good measure. Nobody should reward that with money.
Honest first impression - This looks like a poor knockoff that, while it apes some of P.T. quite blatantly, also seems to be missing so much of what made P.T. great.
I hope i'm wrong.
P.T. must have really made an impact on the horror genre
Clearly a PT ripoff, but hopefully that's just the trailer and not the entire game.
