Developer Supermassive Games and Sony seem to be playing it strictly by the book with upcoming survival horror title Until Dawn, a PlayStation Move exclusive that takes obvious cues from popular slasher films. Judging by the recently-released trailer, the entire situation could have probably been avoided with some very simple precautions, too.
Any person familiar with the horror genre knows two rules you should follow if you want to survive a slasher:
- Don’t rent a cabin in the woods where no one can find you.
- If you ignore the above rule, don’t ever have sex, no matter what you do.
Unfortunately, some of the seven teenage protagonists (and you, apparently) aren’t that genre-savvy, as the footage below shows the group being stalked by a masked stranger who’s probably not bringing them a cake.
And if he is, the cake’s probably filled with poison or knives—something bit less “sweet” and more “murder-y” in taste. Whatever the case is, people are going to die, and some of them will likely be in their underwear.
