RE: The Ultimate SOMA Discussion Thread

I don't think the number of people is the "problem". They'll base the release date on how many faults the testers find. More faults, later release date.

This interview from April 2014 mentions 15 people were working on SOMA at that time.

I remember that Amnesia The Dark Descent, FG revealed the release date on February 2010 and was released on September.

It's been mentioned from the very beginning that release will happen "somewhere in 2015", nothing changed since then.

Most of the people still predict autumn/q3, but it could happen by the end of 2015 as well, in worst case scenario.

RE: The Ultimate SOMA Discussion Thread

The "Files" page on the SOMA website has been fully populated with new entries, some with animated GIFs:

I think the feet shown in the "PSEUDOMEMORY" file are likely to be Trin Miller's/Imogen Reed's. See this behind the scenes pic from the filming of #projectapophis.

And this tweet from FG feels very ARG-like:

Quote:A cryptic message stuck inside a faulty LUMAR relay buoy extracted by FST Evans CORRUPT DATA message is corrupt and only partial reconstruction was possible. Broken imagery show a close-up of AM Engineer Imogen Reed in a ductile suit trying to communicate. The message supposedly originated at Upsilon and was briefly broadcast on multiple frequencies.

The meaning of the message is still unknown CORRUPT DATA considered controversial as Imogen Reed has been missing for weeks and had already been declared dead.

Huh

RE: The Ultimate SOMA Discussion Thread

Just wanna point out that there are letters in the new "item" pages that kind of jump a little bit. After writing down all the letters from each page, I got this:
AL
AI
PHA
S
WHT

I suppose this could be meaningless, and the letters can be arranged in basically any order to form something that makes sense, but somehow...

WHAT IS ALPHA.
WHAT IS ALPHA.
WHAT
IS
ALPHA.

Shit.
