EXP Podcast #296: P.T. Debrief

The queen of nope.
What does P.T. stand for? Podcast time! This week on the show, Scott and I explore the endless hallways of P.T. and come back with our thoughts on the Silent Hills playable teaser, the creative mind of Hideo Kojima, and what the final product might look like in its most fearsome iteration. Also, after to listen to the podcast, come back and watch the YouTube analysis of the game by Marszie below in the show notes. It's truly amazing.

  1. Just listened to the episode (I'm a little bit behind with Experience Points :). Hearing about the wild theories about the story in P.T. reminded me of "Room 237", a documentary about the different interpretations of "The Shining":
    Some of the theories in this movie are really interesting, other are just, well, on the crazy level of conspiracy theories. Hmm, thinking about that, I guess "P.T." and "The Shining" are in some ways comparable: Long hallways, the horror of an ordinary environment, etc...

  2. In a brilliantly eerie coincidence, I actually JUST rewatched The Shining AND Room 237. (I love them both.)

    What's so great about Room 237 is that legitimate theories and the crazy theories rub up right next to each other. The result is a collection of analysis that doesn't put more weight one one perspective than another. It's more about the narrative freedom The Shining gives to viewers. It's the same thing in PT!

    Now you've got my mind a buzz and I might have to write a longer response to this. Also, a father killing his wife and children? A spree of family murders? So many connections!

  3. In this case I guess I have to recommend the sometimes mad, sometimes really interesting ramblings/analysises of Rob Ager. Especially I like his videos about the moving furnitures in Shining:
    ...and the impossible architecture of the film sets:
    (I hope I put the right ones in, because right now I'm at work ;)
    Also I'm not sure anymore if Room 237 talked about one Ager's topics, oh boy. :D

  4. You're an inspirational PlayStar! -
