There’s a belief that a trailer should have something, anything, to do with the game its representing. This is clearly unnecessarily restrictive, as evidenced by Sony’s output over the years, but still generally reserved as a stunt for the bigger players who’ve already got brand recognition. And then there’s Terror Squid, a forthcoming semi-vector-graphic arcade game for PC where you can’t stop moving while laying down a track of bullets behind you, which wouldn’t be a problem if the world wasn’t spherical. It is, though, so anything you leave you’ll have to deal with eventually, hopefully after you’ve built up the power to detonate everything in a massive chain reaction. Sure, there’s a nice gameplay trailer right here, but that’s normal. Anyone can record some video and even toss in a subliminal image or two, but Terror Squid has bigger ambitions. Terror Squid has a Valentine’s Day live-action trailer that’s got nothing to do with anything, and it’s a
complete freakshow charming tale of two souls meeting in a bar. Give it a look below, and um… good luck?
