Since no one read the interview. Heres some interesting bits:

- Game is not open world anymore. They wanted to push better graphics so they made it linear.
- They are using Unreal Engine 5
- Game is a survival shooter with some horror elements but is not an horror game.
- They are trying "new" gameplay mechanics where some actions you do ingame affect the gameplay. They gave the example of running and getting out of breath affecting the way you aim.


Some ppl think his Kojima, i think his Sean Murray 2.0. Someone passione about his project, over-hyping what he have in mind way more than it should be, leading ppl into dissapointment when they release a buggy mess.

Sean Murray at least had a team of competent who had shipped games which were good (just very different from NMS). This guy has nothing.

And the unreal engine 5 makes sense since their first trailer was store bought UE assets only.

Look in the mirror and then your posting history.

You're part of this too, not matter how much you try and deny it.

There is a small part of you that thinks its Kojima. Yeah, youre posting memes and Sarcastic remarks.

But I know, thats just to protect yourself. Protect yourself from what you truly believe.

Embrace your other side.

Ready for a sequel of the WiiU "experience" The Letter? Because that's what we'll be getting, 3 public assets put together that look worse than any 32X game. I now bet on that. It's gonna be trash, high trash level, worse than Sonic Boom!

And it's gonna be so embarrassing. The good news, it's the last time we'll hear from those people. So that's not all that bad after all! 🤡

Yeah. He's doing the exact same mistakes as Sean Murray when it comes to talking about his game. The diference is Hello Games actually has a team with very talented ppl. Blue Box, reecks at amateur hour. Would like them to prove me wrong.

If they had technical issues in a 4 seconds teaser because the team is still not familiar with UE5, i can only imagine the state of a full game. It will either be a buggy mess or they will keep delaying it forever.

“At first, we said it was going to be an open world game,” he explained. “But with the high-quality graphics we have now, we had to sacrifice that. It’s not really open world anymore – it’s a linear story.”

I’m sorry but this sounds like 50 Metacritic trash if ever I’ve seen it (I predict he’ll never release a game though). I can only assume the people still taken in by this snake oil salesman have never seen a blagger at work. This guy makes Sean Murray look normal.

This isn't even as juicy as the head transplant doctor thing from the last "Kojima Ruse Cruise". Boring.

It went from:
Abandoned is a cinematic, first-person horror survival shooter set in a highly detailed open world environment and favours a realistic approach to survival.
To
“At first, we said it was going to be an open world game,” he explained. “But with the high-quality graphics we have now, we had to sacrifice that. It’s not really open world anymore – it’s a linear story.”
"Abandoned is a shooter/survival game,” he told NME. “It has some horror elements in it but it’s not really a horror game. It’s not what people think – that it’s Silent Hill.”
In 4 months. There is no game here.
Well

" That it's Silent Hill "
Technically, he said the truth, this is Silent HillS, not Hill

People really need to stop believing everything they read on the internet.

Hasan's a scammer, he's lying, he's full of it. But everything he says here is true.

If all evidence shows it's not and we are told it's not, surely that means that it is?
Also, I can't see then answering positively even if Kojima is involved and is SH

" is this SH?" " yes"
" Is Kojima involved?" " yes, I had nothing to do today, so I wanted to spoil you a surprise for no reason after 6 years"

Thinks gaf is racist. That's why I post here. I think I'm among friends.

I still don't know what a "real time experience" is.

The guy already said way before this interview that it's not Silent Hill and has nothing to do with Konami or Kojima. The only thing new here is the broad overview synopsis which may or may not be real given how many people already believe he's been lying this whole time.

Well, duh.. The question is, is it even a game that actually exists or will ever actually release. I'm leaning, no.

50? Really? So you think that some parts of this will be ok? 🤡

It’s gonna be like 5 and it’s gonna be so fun to watch the Blue Box team burn! (There’s a secret clue in my sentence that it’s S________L)! 😂

Can't be, Kojima tweeted a picture of a book, that referenced a song, that referenced a constellation, that referenced a date, that referenced another book, that had a chapter with the same first letters on every other word that spell out Hasans cousins middle name.

How is that coincidence even possible?

Why give the "scoop" to a music magazine?

Especially if you're concerned about innuendo and rumour, why not go to a big enthusiast site?

The only reasons I can think of are to (1) avoid scrutiny of the product, which seems barely relevant considering he's showing nothing, and (2) which seems much more likely, to be an outlet that can be safely "burned".

Just like how Sony choose wired for their ps5 scoops.
