Last week I had the privilege of playing a preview build of PS4-exclusive horror adventure Until Dawn, which scared the hell out of me and all of the other local gaming press who were present.

At the end of the preview, I wrote about how the game records the gamer’s reaction to the exact moments of its biggest scares, that can be watched later, but I didn’t mention that Ster Kinekor, the game’s distributor, also recorded their own videos of us playing.

And guess what just hit my Inbox? Yes, the highlights reel Ster put together of us all reacting to (and sometimes swearing at) the jump scares.

None of these reactions are scripted, and nobody was paid to say what they do about the game. Take it from someone who spent 3+ hours with Until Dawn, this is one scary game and these reactions are entirely warranted.


If you like what you see and want to play too, you can grab a copy of the game from the 26th of August.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
