I remember when The Blair Witch Project movie first came out and everyone said it was the scariest film ever. Then I went to the cinema to see it and I realised that everyone was lying. There was one mildly chilling scene at the end, sure, but the only really scary part of the film was the amount of liquid produced by Heather’s runny nose…
Thankfully the upcoming Bloober Team developed spin-off game, Blair Witch is full of scary moments, as you’ll be able to see in the video below where Aoife and I play through 30 minutes of the game. There’s even a face-cam so you can witness our terror in high definition, although thankfully there isn’t a snotty nose in sight!
The demo we played consisted of short snippets from each of the game’s five chapters and as you’d expect, it starts off relatively calm before building up to a veritable shriek-fest.
