Until Dawn – the teen-horror adventure game for PlayStation 4 – started its life as a very different thing. The game was originally slated for the PlayStation 3, and would control in first-person via Sony’s PlayStation Move wands.
Videogame historian and YouTuber PtoPOnline recovered footage of an early build of the game, which you can watch above. Note that this was before any of the big-name actors like Rami Malek, Peter Stormare, or Hayden Panettiere signed on.
The game’s first trailer – which debuted at Gamescom in 2012 – shows some of that first-person perspective, but at a later stage of development.
The game then went quiet until it released in August 2015. Bronwyn reviewed the game, scoring it a 9/10. She praised its horror elements, and choice-and-consequence gameplay.
