Oddworld creator Lorne Lanning has revealed that he is designing a game that features content even "more traumatic" than Grand Theft Auto 5's torture scene.
Ummm, well, so long as it isn't purely for shock value, and so long as it doesn't implcitly condone and make sport of whatever it is...
Oddworld games have always had the underlying theme of harshness, slavery, brutality and mental cruelty as a theme. The creatures were even being forced to work as slaves while they're eyes were surgically removed, only to take the bone's of their comrades and turn them into an ingredient for soft drinks. Weird--yes, but also shows how cruel slavery/captivity can get (think of the cruelty shown towards Holocaust victims and how they were dismembered, tortured, experimented on, and not fed, etc) for example.
You must be fun at parties.
@bathyj "you must be fun at parties" N4G isn't a party.., God forbid someone talk about games on a gaming website. "you must be fun at parties" no offense, but that is somthing slow people say when they don't want to engage in intelligent conversation because they know they can't keep up" "you must be fun at parties" funny, everyone i know who says that are the ones who can't hold their liquor and end up ruining the party.
Awesome. I'll buy anything this guy makes.
Metoo! The Oddworld Games were awesome and i can't imagine something new by this lovely company to be any less amazing. Take my got damn money.
Bring it on!
Ok...? It's not gonna be hard to top it. The torture scene wasn't NEARLY as bad as what are in movies and such.
that what i was thinking. I heard all the hooplah about the torture scene in gtav and when I got to it and through it I thought to myself I've seen way worse many times and not just recently.
Honestly, I wasn't even aware THAT was the torture scene in question. I thought another one happened later in the game that was gonna be far worse(cutting someone's limb off with hepatic feedback) Now that would have been bad.
Wow. You got old Lorne. I still see you as the guy with the long black hair and evil looking beard.
Hey thas me with long dark that feels like ice as it blows pass the fearful and the scary beard twisted like the dancer himself
Ppl are still talking about that... It wasnt that bad
Hmmmm... an Oddworld torture scene?!
someone actually thought the torture scene in GTA V was traumatizing..? i wouldn't go that far. then again the things that scare me aren't exactly things like that anyways... meh.
