Okay, mental institutions are creepy, we get it.
Dead Space 2 is on a slow, subterranean roll to getting revealed later this month, as well as on the upcoming Spike TV Video Game Awards 2009. So before we can lay our eyes on the meaty videos and screenshots and promotional banter, we have before us a cute teaser image released on the game’s official Twitter page (in space no one can hear you tweet, etc. etc).
What is it? Well, that’s exactly what the question is, because you have a strange Rorschach blot staring at you and you have to figure out what it is. Can’t be sure what it really is, but the art is very tasteful, if you look at closely enough. See those specks and streaks flying out of the blot? Look at them closely and they’ll remind you of the limbs of Dead Space baddies (specifically those walker things). The wild tentacles at the sides are most likely the weird-stuff-throwing-heads-with-tentacles, as I like to call them.
I can’t tell what the lowest splotches are, although they do look like monsters of some sort. Then there’s also the two parallel lines in the middle and the center-splat. Oh, and that writing at the bottom. Nope, no idea. I wonder if Dead Space has created geeks of a calibre high enough to decode its fictional writing? I know that Morrowind did.
