Well in the trailer, we saw one i think. Anyone remembers the cage scene?And the part where the monster breaks down the door? Weren't that safe zones to hide?

I think that by "safe", people mean areas with no monsters at all. Like the back hall and the cistern entrance in ATDD, for example.

Yeah i think you're right...
Well i think there will be some places where we dont have to escape. But according to the interview, i think there won't be places like the cisterns... If we have to run evey time it will be a bit annoying don't ya think so too guys?

If you call that "safe" than almost every place in TDD is "safe." By safe, we're talking about areas (entire levels) in the game where monsters simply don't exist, or can't reach you, like some of the "hub" levels in TDD.

Not bad. Depending on the size of such a creature, you might be able to hide in there even if it tracked you down. However, if this happened to me, even though I might physically be safe, my mind would definitely explode and I would never ever dare to move an inch from the corner I would be hugging!

But as was mentioned a few times, safe areas are commonly referred to as entire areas, often hub-like, where you (I like emphasising the following word) think you are safe, since even though you can find nice hiding spots when creatures are roaming, you are never truly safe, and the creature is still out looking for you nearby. ;3

*Looks down* Wait, what is this ...?

RE: No safe place at all?

The girl in the start of one of the teasers? She appears to be saying a common nursery rhyme. Here is some more info:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/This_Little_Piggy

Why she says it, nobody knows ... It adds a lot to the creepy factor, I feel. My personal theory is that she sings it innocently while doing some possessed ritual, or something, especially since her voice becomes somewhat demonic towards the end of the speech. I am excited to find out! However, I think this belongs in the A Machine For Pigs discussion topic, since this topic is mostly about safe areas. =3

RE: No safe place at all?

I always understand:
This little piggy went to market.
This little piggy stayed at home.
This little piggy had Ricebeef (Dafuq)
And this piggy had none.
And this piggy cried wee wee wee--- And so on...

(Well that is... Impressive Big Grin)

Edit: Sorry its roast beef xD

RE: No safe place at all?

Now that we are on the subject of safe area.

If there is one area that could need some work, is the loading doors.

imagine if you werent actually safe, and when you went through, you could see them hammer on the door, and they could actually follow you.

But i guess its a engine limitation. because you always knew that it couldn pass the loading door. which is kinda a shame.[/align]

Pretty sure that was meaningless, creepy little girls always have had a huge scare factor (check out some J-horror like the ring and ju-on / the grudge if you don't believe me). That part of the trailer was more marketing than anything. The girl was also probably Mandus' daughter, whom we have known about for some time.

I seriously doubt at any point in the game we'll actually run across a little girl in the game in the middle of a pentagram cutting her hand with a kukri while reciting, "This Little Piggy." That'd be pretty laughable.
