Some guy is running through a castle while he runs away from a guy with his jaw ripped off and a guy with his face so strange looking that he sounds like a cow.
I was playing Justine yesterday. I built a tower up to the place with the wax cylinder and boxes, then I went to the first cell to the left and ran up and climbed up there. I threw a boc at Alois (the enemy) and he said "You came for me!" I started laughing. He decided it would be smart to spin in a circle, so he did and it looked like he was a pretty good dancer, so I jumped on his head and got to study the things he says without being killed. I even passed out a few times ontop of him. And when I ran away, i ran around the small corner, crouched, and he started hitting the wall repetedly. I wasn'y scared at all, i was laughing.
This game really isn't scary. But it's fun, it's beautiful, and it's amazing! Well sure sometimes you can get a little bit scared but I don't really. Penumbra Overture is the scariest game for me because DOGS ARE REAL. I've seen a dog. But never a flappyjaw. So he doesn't scare me.
A very accepted theory is that the monsters in amnesia are actually the mutilated soldiers that you here about in the wine room. So if you agree that their's only one brute, then you can see this -->"It feels as though my head is going to explode, blood is pouring from my eyes and I can't. . ." could mean this -->"Holy Shit! That thing has a vagina for a face!"
And even if you don't accept those creatures as being possible, the creatures in Justine are too true. They are simply human beings broken by the cruelty of another. The noises in Justine could be either: You're insane (which you actually find out she has a serious mental disorder), fragments of past memories, or all part of Justine's experiment is to use recordings to affect you. Another thing about Amnesia is that when you're in *SPOILERS* the torture chambers the game relies sheerly on the realization; This is all possible, it happened perhaps, hundreds of times before. Not to video game characters, but to real people. Imagine being sawed in half. Imagine what it must be like, to be shoved in a bronze tomb, a sick parody of a fable; monument of humanities ignorance, to be burned alive in such a machine -- ears bleeding from one's own screams echoing around you.
I could make another human look like a grunt, and don't think I couldn't. In fact, all those years ago people could do the same. Some of the flesh on their legs are missing; it could've been torn off and sown to their throat. I could remove your bottom jaw, take of all the skin, and glue it to the inside of your mouth. Like fucking play-doe. Take your hand, remove all the fingers, and replace them with a porcupine's quills. Looks who's "Flappy Jaw" now.
