Y'know, I hate these kinds of trailers. I know absolutely nothing more about that game than I did prior except that it is apparently a thing.
Could someone actually tell what the hell this thing is? I refuse to justify this kind of advertisement to research myself.
I actually liked that the trailer was different than usual. Like I said in The Witcher thread today I hate te trailers that consist only of epic sounding music with characters don't pseudo-badass things and don't show anything else. I prefer conceptual trailers like this or trailers based on the story. One can know the gameplay by looking at preview/review videos or whatever.
Instead, I have learned a horrible truth of existence...some stories have no meaning.

oh sure, but you like trailers consisting of beautiful music with landscapes doing nothing and dont show anything else but a bunch of words describing how awesome this thing is, but not what this thing is.. thats so much better =O
Pro Tip: Spiders are not technically insects, but actually skeletons made of congealed hate.
From what I can tell the trailer doesn't look too far off from the game itself. The site says it's a ghost story, and it involves you exploring the area in first person and hearing bits of letters to a woman named Esther.
I can't help but get the feeling that this game isn't helping the whole "story vs. gameplay" discussion. That this game lacks gameplay almost entirely kind of reinforces the misguided belief that story comes at the expense of gameplay. Ugh, wonderful.
@Jaf: Yes. But I wouldn't describe them as "Walking around while an old British man talks," if that's the comparison you're getting at.
And the trailer does nothing to imply this is anything like an adventure game.
