I apologize, Zeno. I didn't mean to be so rude. It was
freaky to see the hand come out of the shaft but it looks like another scary movie trailer/blurb. I know you spent a goodly amount of time making it look good and creepy (which it did).
If I were a graphics artist, I would try to do something and show everyone, but now I just feel like an asshole critic. I did try and make some suggestions for a different approach to what potential buyers are going to see.
I think with movies which are so prevalent now like "The Descent" (which was pretty good), the "Saw" trilogy, the Texas Chainsaw franchise, etc., that most gamers are going to be a little jaded and frankly rather tired of seeing the same old approach to marketing horror movies. Gobs of spoilers before you even see the darn thing.
The recent spew of pseudo-"snuff" films turn me off: "Hostel", "Turista", etc. They aren't scary to me. Just cruel. I don't find them frightening - merely disgustingly sad and exploitative.
The Arctic/Greenland scenario is a perfect setting for something new: almost The Thing
-like, but, you know, see if something terrifyingly different
can happen with Penumbra
Again, I apologize, Zeno. I didn't mean to criticize your admirable efforts. I guess I just like the color ice-blue and want to make it scare the bejeebies out of people, or something!
