Bandai Namco and The Farm 51 have presented a story trailer for their new game, Get Even. From this trailer I can tell you…some things? I’m still not overly sure, but there’s a gruff Yorkshireman (think Sean Bean) and a more crisp male English voice, which merges with a female English voice. As well as a slightly distorted, panicked girl and a strange sounding guy.
Right let’s try and break it down a little. The trailer first shows what looks like a horror FPS, with the player using a smart phone to guide their way through a house. Then there’s a girl tied to a chair. In a big empty room with lights shining on her. OK we’re getting there. Then hang on…there’s a room with graffiti and an empty chair, but the shadow shows a girl tied to it. Then a TV with a guy on it?
Wait, maybe if I look at what is said by the voices. Also, there’s no subtitles so bear with me. I’m not sure I’ve got what the panicked girl said properly.
Yorkshireman: “You already know what I’m thinking about this. Because you’ve had the same thoughts.”
Panicked Girl: “How much did you know?”
Duel Voice: “I keep him around because he’s useful to me. He was built to take orders.”
PG: “How much to be responsible for?”
YM: “He thinks he owns me.”
PG: “Was it really you who started all this?”
DV: “You understand how rare that is? To have no purpose other than the one you’re given?”
YM: “But I’ve had enough now. I don’t trust him.”
DV: “He’s a hammer.”
YM: “I don’t trust his games.”
DV: “The perfect tool. As long as you use him for the right job.”
YM: “I don’t trust any of it.”
Strange Guy: “Party…the Party!”
SG: “He’s on his way! He’s on his way!”
SG: “He’s gone because of you! … We’ll all be gone soon!”
YM: “…and I’m gonna do something about it. I’m gonna get out of here.”
DV: “We’re from such opposite worlds he and I. That’s why I find him so fascinating. That’s why I’ve been studying him.”
YM: “I haven’t figured out how yet. But I do know that when the time comes I’m going to need allies.”
PG: “The wheels are in motion.”
SG: “We can sort this out in the gallows.”
YM: “So I need to know, are you with him. Or are you with me?”
DV: “He’s a simple creature. He just needs an objective.”
All the while, there are various scenes shown including a load of mannequins in praying poses and writing on a wall reading “All hail puppet master – thou shalt be king hereafter!”. You know what, I could try describing this article all day, just watch it.
