Dead Space Extraction is scary stuff

Not everything in the land of the Wii is sunshine and rainbows. Visceral Games is set on creating dread and desperation on the Wii with Dead Space: Extraction, which ships today for (un)lucky Europeans. In this video, the developers teach us lessons in Horror 101 and the cinematic science of bowel-loosening frights. They emphasize pacing above all else, taking a page from Hitchcock in his beliefs on suspense, “There is no terror in the bang. Only in the anticipation of it.”

Dead Space: Extraction hopes to terrorize gamers today in Europe and Sept. 29 in North America.
