The First Incident by cactus
This is a cutscene from a game that I might consider making in the future. It's supposed to look like a documentary on an old VHS.

The premise is that the US suffers a few unexplainable catastrophes. Eventually the entire population gets eradicated, just gone without a trace. The whole country gets put into quarantine for an undetermined amount of time, during which a group of scientist shall try to find the cause of the incident.

Thanks for the kind ratings. I didn't spend much time on this cutscene, maybe two or three hours. I didn't expect to win and was really happy with getting the highest score of all the losers.

The music is me playing guitar actually, I just slowed it down a lot and added the crackle. I didn't really have a thought out melody, so it's mostly just improvised and recorded hastily. It fit the scene so I didn't care to fine tune it any further.

Eventually I'll try to make a game to accompany this experiment, but don't expect to see it anytime soon.

One of my favorites of all of the entries (I know the contest is over, but I'm just getting around to watching the cutscenes). The only thing I could comment on is the music. I mean, it was good, and fit the mood of the cutscene, but it just got annoying after a bit. I think there is a way to fix it, though. Add a low-end 'choir' (which can be one person singing different notes on each recording) in place of the notes that kind of sound like, to me, a midi sequencer mimicing a choir. Give it the same kind of effect as Halo's title screen, you know? And maybe a little bit of (LOW VOLUME!) wind blowing in the background... yes... if you did those justices to the music, I'd give this a 10, easy... for right now, you get a nine.

Indeed, also my favourite... I don't know what to say, but it's just coded brilliant.

Nicely done, the feeling is there, only it has a really abrupt end...
