Post: RE: SOMA Mod - When Day Breaks [Version 1.0.2]

Wow! A brilliant adaptation of the SCP article. The sunlit room is genius. (You'll see what I mean when you play it.)

After suffering a tragedy, a man is somehow reborn in the post-apocalyptic future. The remnants of humanity live in a reinforced structure whose technology is slowly failing, besieged by strange horro...

Post: RE: The Coin Flip: A Different Perspective

Even though I'm firmly in the "Simon's continuity is an illusion" camp, I have trouble seeing where the cell replacement argument breaks down. Did you know that the human body consists of up to 75 tr...

Post: RE: The Coin Flip: A Different Perspective

I don't buy the popular "reliving memories" theory, for several reasons: 1. It's not necessary. Powersuit Simon doesn't need to relive his memories; he just needs to have them. When his brain state i...

Post: RE: The Coin Flip: A Different Perspective

We agree on the true nature of the coin flip: it's an illusion. (I also think that the "reliving memories" theory makes no sense. You clearly play as four separate characters throughout the game.) Nev...

Post: Anything interesting out there?

The abyssal plain is really good at making you think something's out there. The first time I played, I was too scared to explore. The other times I played, I tried to explore, but never found anything...

I'll eventually write a full (nine months late) review, but here's the short version: play this thing. It scratched my H. R. Giger itch in a way that SOMA didn't. Spoiler below! The grid pu...

Post: Eye tracking - nope

This is the cleverest application of eye tracking that I've ever seen. I assume it's used with the Flesher. Spoiler below! If you look at it with your actual eyes, it starts teleporting.

It's not a map of outer space. It's a (really grainy) photo of a UH8.

I agree that neither scenario is a coin toss. I also agree that the right answers are "yes" to #1 and "no" to #2. This has some unpleasant consequences, though. If you find #2 unappealing, then I ass...

Some random questions: 1. How does Imogen Reed's body end up in the pilot seat at Upsilon? 2. Catherine seems surprised by the state of PATHOS-II. ("This place is in ruins. All the cameras show stat...

At that point in the video, there's a sound of heavy breathing (the same sound that "old Simon" makes in the pilot seat at Omicron). Maybe that's the blackbox recording?

Play this mod if you haven't already. It's brilliant, and much deeper than it appears. Spoiler below! Is the last ending a tie-in to SOMA (specifically Theta)?
