that looked really cool, looks like they're using the Quantum Break tech but need to know more about what the game is.

Looks like a VR mansion where your objective is to escape or something ?

We have our own inhouse engine called NorthLight, there are some stylistic similarities but its not the QB version of the engine, much upgraded.

So you have abilities - not time manupilation.

It is not a VR mansion type game.

we call it a world within a location : basically the building is trippy as hell and transforms..

Looks good but it reminded me of the Infamous series in terms of gameplay. Let's see what's going to be unique in the coming days.
Actually I think so too...i.e a couple of abilities are slightly similar



The main thing about the game is "new -weird" ...so think stranger things vibe..

Most comprehensive info :

Finnish gaming company Remedy, known for its large-scale production, introduced its new game in Los Angeles - this is why it can be the next Finnish hit game

"There are a lot of new stuff going on in this game," says Remedi's creative director Sami Järvi.



Pekka Torvinen HS

Finnish video game company Remedy presented the game industry at E3 in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning, Finland's newest game, Control , previously known only as the code name Project 7 or P7.

This is a third-person action adventure that promises to combine Remedy's "supernatural abilities" as a "trademarked action game".

We'll let the trailer talk for you:




The trailer is dark in color, and it
has already been interpreted that Control looks a little like Remedy had taken all the lessons he learned from Max Paynes , Alan Waka and Quantum Break and throwing them into the same suit.

"Time-honored interpretations made on a short trailer," says
Sami Järvi from Remedi's creative director, Los Angeles . The clock on the west coast of the United States is just over 23, but at the other end of the phone, despite being fatigued, it is thrilled.






"There are a lot of new stuff going on in this game."

How does Control then differ from the previous big production, Quantum Break ?

In Quantum Break, the narrative was a movie, combining a video game and a TV show. The production values ​​were high, and the budget tens of millions of euros.

In Control, the production values ​​are again at the so-called AAA level, but the story is mainly told inside the game, in its world.

"What distinguishes this game from the past is that we have gone the world above. It has been desirable to create a whole where the player can do and focus on where he wants. The player may wonder what he wants to do, where to go, what to do. Greater freedom of choice separates this from previous games, "says the game manager of the Control game manager, Los Angeles , named
Mikael Kasurinen .

"The story of the game is just the beginning of the journey," the lake Joppa.

"There are characters and it is a backdrop. Their purpose is to bring the player to the world of the game and drop it deep into its wonders. "

" Our previous games have been very linear experiences. You start from the beginning and you end up, and experience has been seen. "

Now there is a "very big" non-linear experience, promised by Lake.


Control is positioned in a modern world like previous Remedy games. It was, however, desired to add a mystery that would raise questions and allow different interpretations.(PHOTO: REMEDY ENTERTAINMENT )

In Control , therefore, the player is challenged in ways different from Remedy's previous games for both game mechanics and the created world.

"The player himself has to decide how far he wants to go with some things. If you want the world to want more information, you yourself have to look into and figure out how things have gone, "Kasurinen says.

According to Järvi, the philosophy of the game's design was to rely on players.

"We do not want to keep the player in hand and lead along a certain path. We're dropping into a world of gamers who have strange things and a lot of different possibilities. "

The game's trailer was released on Tuesday night on Finnish time at Sony's event.
Thomas Puha,

Remedy's Communications Directorsays that only about ten games were presented at the event, and "it was a tough thing to get there."

"The trailer has got very different reactions. The fact that the reactions are strong is good. "

According to Puhan, Järvi and Kasurinen, the trailer does not want to reveal too much. Above the game, we want to keep "a certain kind of mystery shadow" as far as possible.

The inspiration for the game has been sought especially from the "new weird" literature.

"We read
Jeff VanderMer's Annihilation (published in 2014, translated as Destruction in 2015) right at the beginning of the project, and it included at least a fanfare," says Kasurinen.

Based on this book, this year's film was released, which has garnered praise all over the world.
In HS's estimation, Disaster was considered the best sci-fi movie for years.

TV shows inspired by Westworld , Mr. Robot and Legion .

"When you look at the world of the game, its atmosphere and spirit, it also shows the inspiration of the horror movies of the '80s and' 90s. How does telekinesia look and feel? What about the force that has taken over everything? "Lake ponders.

"The core of the game is the idea of ​​managing and losing control. That idea has been wanted to bring both story, game world and gaming experience. "

That's why the name of the game is Control.

The main character of the game is Jesse Faden, who arrives at the Federal Bureau of Counterfeit just as the superhuman power attacks the agency and kills the head of the agency. Faden becomes a new leader who ought to get the lost office lost to strange powers.


Control has been inspired by, among other things, Jeff VanderMeer's book Destruction.(PHOTO: REMEDY ENTERTAINMENT )

"The headquarters of the corporation is a huge mysterious house named The Oldest House. In practice, we hit the player with the keys of the house, let him in front of the front door, and then the player then decides what he is doing, "says Lake.

Within the house you can use supernatural talents, and the environment is shaped by both the player and the enemy's actions.

"The brutal architecture of the house has been carefully considered. It is honest and straightforward. The materials are clear and comprehensible: concrete, steel, wood and glass. Honesty helps to create the world that matches the player's actions, "says Järvi.

According to Järvi and Kasurinen, the result would be a dynamic and surprising experience, especially as the player is not the only one capable of modifying the environment.

"We are going to play the above: we want a game that is simply fun to play and which challenges and surprises the player. We want to create a place to return to and over again, "Kasurinen says.

Remedy worked closely with Microsoft's PlayStation for ten years. However, control was announced at Sony's event.

Why so?

"We have a really good relationship with Microsoft and we are constantly discussing them with them. Wonderfully we also have a good relationship with Sony. We are an independent gaming studio and we wanted to do things a bit differently this time, to take the so-called freesi approach, "says Järvi.

"Sony was enthusiastic about our idea, which is of course great for us. Control will in any case be on many gaming platforms. "

Remedy releases the game together with 505 Games.

Control will be released next year for both Playstation, Xbox and PC, for which the game is released through the Steam service.

Good question..It does look like QB cause 1) the actress (Courtney hope) has played a part in QB
2) The render style of our engine ( i.e alot of unreal or unity games look similar to eachother due to shaders and lighting)
3) The lighting and composition is highly stylized..to give it that "remedy look"
4) Our engine is really good at doing epic vfx

I'll buy this game just to support you :p
You dont know how much that means to me...pm me when we are close to launch date ( might be able to get you a decent discount)..also I can then officially sign the copy

I was Mad for Psi-ops to, That cliffhanger ending made me even want it more... It was such an underrated game to a point that it is a crime not to play it. Its publisher Midway Games is also the one of my favorite developers in PS2 era.

@NaNoW can we ask whats your designation there or its a secret :ninja:
I do quite a bit of stuff here. Lets simply put it like : Associate producer for shared services and for project

Shared services : Audio ( composers, inhouse/outhouse audio, musicians, foley, sfx, reverbs), then character tech, character art, gameplay animations, cinematic animations and vfx ( basically these teams are working on multiple projects = Control, Crossfire 2 and "other prototype projects" currently )) + pipelines, vision and design documentation updates for shared services

and for project i.e P7 or Control : production control of (title sequence, intro/outro, the breathing gun you saw (we call it service weapon), bosses, enemies, Actor management, Key art(or box art), credit list, xyz, - a thousand little small things) + pipelines, vision and design documentation updates for project

basically shared services are be shared between multiple projects

was this too detailed?
