I just viewed the quick teaser for A Tour of Hanwell: The Making of Asylum on youtube. I have to say that if the upcoming game took anything at all from the creator’s experiences going through a real asylum then I do believe we are in for a more disturbing experience than we bargained for. That little story about the “cyclops”…that’s genuine nightmare material. Very heartbreaking.
But of course, that is also what goes into a great game…or great movie, book, anything. If it makes you really feel something, even if that feeling is a hard one to take, then you know youre onto something.
