DAMN YE! LET NEPTUNE STRIKE YE DEAD, WINSLOW! HAAAAAARK!

Previews

The trailers pull absolutely no punches in the Go Mad from the Isolation department.

  • Wake's "Why'd ya spilled yer beans?" quote eerily echoing throughout the first trailer.
  • Ephraim struggling with an octopus that's snaring his neck with a tentacle.
  • The scary rendition of "Doodle Let Me Go".
  • Wake is seen running through a storm while clutching an axe - given his mental instability, this leaves some obviously disturbing insinuations.
    • Some of the shots also imply he's chasing Ephraim.
  • At the end of the first trailer, Wake's dialogue reveals they start to lose track of time. Another sign of their growing insanity? Or something else, given the supernatural implications...
    Thomas Wake: "How long have we been on this rock? Five weeks? Two Days? Help me to recollect."
  • Wake's Freak Out at the end of the second trailer after a brief "debate" between him and Ephraim, all set to nightmarish imagery of the lighthouse, the aforementioned axe, and another brief glimpse of the octopus.
    Thomas Wake: Damn ye! Let Neptune strike ye dead, Winslow. HAAAARK!
