OD announced at The Game Awards 2023 as Jordan Peele joins Hideo Kojima on stage
Hideo Kojima announced OD, an upcoming horror title "for all players and screamers" at The Game Awards 2023. He was joined on stage by Jordan Peele, who is well-known for his work in the horror genre. Regarding the cast, the trailer announced Sophia Lillis, Udo Kier, and Hunter Schafer.
In a short clip featuring close-ups of Sophia Lillis and Udo Kier, both actors are seen incessantly repeating the phrase:
"The hungry purple dinosaur ate the kind, zingy fox, the jabbering crab, and the mad whale and started vending and quacking."
Their expressions change, getting consistently agitated and troubled. I was pleasantly reminded of Samuel Beckett's Play.
For those who remember, an upcoming horror game titled Overdose by Hideo Kojima was leaked back in June 2022. If both are the same, then it has taken more than a year for the official announcement.
Kojima stated that he is seeking to challenge himself and push the boundaries of horror by creating "something immersive" with the help of Xbox Game Studios and their technology. He promised that the project was simultaneously a game, movie, and "new form of media."
Kojima concluded by saying he has other "creative partners" who are legends, and that he calls them "The Avengers." Peele chimed in to reiterate that OD is "unlike any other game."
