The mysterious warping vent

So early on in the Black Plague demo, I'm crawling along one of the vents and to my left there's a grating where you can see one of the infected (who I'm assuming is Gray). Anyway, moving a little further suddenly I'm warped back to a position just before the grating. At first I thought this was a stutter on my laptop, which wouldn't have surprised me due to my less than spectacular graphics chip. But I've read other people have same "problem".

Is it a problem (bug)? Or is this deliberate and if so, why?

RE: The mysterious warping vent

Spoiler below!

////////////////////////////
//START PLAYER DEJA VU SPOOK
void EnterPlayerDeja(string asParent, string asChild)
{
StartScreenShake(0.1, 0,0.12,0.05);

PlayGuiSound("09_pitch", 0.6f);

TeleportPlayerToArea("doflick");

RemoveEntityCollideCallback("Enter","Player","eventplayerdeja");
}
//START PLAYER DEJA VU SPOOK
////////////////////////////


That's the script that does that. I think it was meant to distort the player a little bit.

Please -REP me.
Honestly, please do. I want to see how low I can go!!
Ignore that error message too. Just ignore it and keep going to give me -rep.

RE: The mysterious warping vent

The developers mentioned something about distorting the gamer's perception, so I'd bet this is definitely deliberate.

RE: The mysterious warping vent

I always thought there were two vents where you can see this infected person. it never dawned on me that it'd be deja vu.

RE: The mysterious warping vent

Thanks for the script WindexGlow. I wonder what other kinds of distortions the player will suffer in the full game.

RE: The mysterious warping vent

Why do people keep thinking it's a bug? Isn't it obvious its a scary-thing?

Worst regards, Kejdane.
