Back in October, Frictional said we’d have to wait until after A Machine for Pigs released before they’d divulge any details regarding their next game — which they also confirmed is of the horror persuasion. That time is now, and true to their word, the developer has started teasing their next game via a viral website.
The site is NextFrictionalGame.com and it’s currently covered in glitchy images and text, with a progress bar in the center that, at the time of this writing, just hit 11%. I’m not sure how quickly it’s filling, but I am sure that by the time it reaches 100%, we’ll know what we’re in for.
Now, as a horror fan, when I see glitchy text that reads “SYSTEM FAILURE” and I know it’s related to a horror game, my mind immediately goes to System Shock. Thanks to a particularly observative fan, we also know the broken text that’s been scattered about the page reads “Cogito ergo sum,” which is Latin for “I think, therefore I am.” (see below) That sounds like A.I. talk to me, but then again, like an impatient Half-Life fan, I’m afraid I’ve lost all perspective.
The idea of a Frictional developed System Shock 3 is far too exciting for me to consider anything else at the moment, so I’ll leave it to you — what do you think this is?
