Atmosphere and Tension Take the Focus in the Second Episode of “Mastering Horror” Series for ‘The Callisto Protocol’ [Video]


After getting some help from The Walking Dead‘s Robert Kirkman in the first episode, he’s back once again with Striking Distance Studios’ second entry in their “Mastering Horror” docuseries for The Callisto Protocol. This second episode of Mastering Horror, entitled “Atmosphere & Tension”, focuses on (what else?) the way atmosphere and tension are used in horror entertainment, and how the team at Striking Distance Studios is implementing them in The Callisto Protocol to heighten players’ sense of fear.

Joining Kirkman once again are Glen Schofield and the development team at Striking Distance Studios, along with the cast of The Callisto Protocol, Tom Savini, Alec Gillis, Sean Cunningham and more notable horror personalities. The series of clips sees the participants discuss how to build tension in a game like The Callisto Protocol, which includes looking at pacing, and its effective use.

Obviously, coming from the same folks behind the Dead Space series, it’s obvious that they know a thing or two about things like tension and atmosphere. Which again, if you’ve read our preview, you know that The Callisto Protocol has that in spades, along with the body horror that’s loved by so many horror fans.

The Callisto Protocol arrives December 2nd for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam.
