The upcoming theme park administration sim Park Beyond gave us a beautiful Valentine’s Day-themed trailer, besides, wait a second, this isn’t beautiful in any respect, Oh God. I’m positive Park Beyond shall be a healthful little bit of enjoyable – creating outlandish rollercoasters and managing the nuts & bolts of a made-up enterprise is all the time an excellent time. But, good grief, there’s one thing critically disturbing about its newest trailer.
Lay your eyes on it right here, if you happen to dare:
The trailer doesn’t begin off too badly. We get a pleasant have a look at a few of the love-heart-laced rides and decorations that cowl the park in smooth, sweet pinks. The silver fox Phil guides us by the trailer, making bulletins by the park’s audio system in a cheery, enthusiastic voice. But, the longer issues go on, the weirder they get, and I’m guessing it was all unintentional.
It’s arduous to pin down precisely what makes the trailer somewhat jarring. After some time, the music introduces these bizarre chimes which can be often reserved for spooky haunted home movies. Phil additionally will get more and more creepy because the trailer goes on; teleporting right into a ferris wheel pod to scare an unsuspecting couple, popping up within the background of different pictures with an eery digicam zoom. His bulletins virtually flip into commandments as he growls “love each other” throughout the park. It all builds collectively, feeling like a bizarre fever dream I wakened from, all sweaty and confused.
Maybe I simply have the Tuesday blues. The trailer did showcase a few of the cool methods you’ll be able to customise the park’s pathways, rides, and stalls, and I’m positive Park Beyond shall be a pleasant time for followers of administration sim games like Rollercoaster Tycoon, however this trailer simply proves not each game wants a Valentine’s Day trailer. Check out Two Point Campus’ recent trailer if you wish to see a not-so-scary means of doing the identical factor.
Aside from this, Park Beyond is shaping as much as be an excellent journey. In her early impressions, AliceB thought Park Beyond was a hilarious, and barely ridiculous, sim with a powerful toolset for creating rides.
Creepy, or humorous? We’ll discover out later this yr when Park Beyond releases on PC Steam and consoles.
