New teaser site from SEGA

21 Mar

sega teaser site 0328

We all know, SEGA likes teaser sites, a lot. So after the one for the japanese release of Chaos Online, here’s a new mysterious site (you can check it here, but the above image shows pretty much everything).

The web page hints to some PlayStation3 and PsVita exclusive and reports the date of March 28.

Unfortunately there isn’t much more to tell, apart for the faded field at the bottom, and what looks like sand being poured down in the middle of the screen. It could possibly be everything. So stay tuned, and wait for March 28.

***UPDATE 27 Marc 2013***

You will be very disappointed

Teaser sites everywhere!

8 Feb

We all know the video games industry feeds on hype. And beside all the regular hype-increaser stuff, like trailers or other advertisements (like this one), sometimes video games companies opt for some sort of mysterious teaser sites, that make gamers and press yell “what the fuck is this?”.

We got a couple examples online right now.

The first one is from SEGA and it features three different artworks (one of them below) and teases a February 12 reveal. You can check out the site here.

Someone said that seems to be for a Japanese version of Korean online game Chaos Online, because, as you can check by yourself here, the game’s official Korean site features banners with the same artworks.

The second one is from Square Enix. The site (here we go) is called murdered.com and it features just a random symbol painted on a rainy road. The header also says: What is the hardest case to solve?

Square Enix is less cryptic than SEGA; indeed, beside the header and the platforms logos, it is also teasing some hints via its social network channels (like this brand new Twitter account), posting some absolutely meaningless images like this one below.

Any clue about this? Someone on the net found this harvester.netops.eidosinteractive.com/harv.js?’+Math.random(); string in the HTML source of the site, so probably it’s some new IP called Harvester, but more likely it’s just another spin off game from the 13 series that no one wants [Cit.].

**UPDATE (9 Feb 2013)**

Apparently Square Enix replied to Kotaku asking for more details. Here it is:

Murdered: Soul Suspect is an exciting new game from Square Enix which challenges players to solve possibly the hardest case of all.”
