So, remember that rumour regarding Hideo Kojima developing a horror game called Overdose starring Death Stranding‘s Margaret Qualley? Well, the footage that was the source of the Overdose rumour has leaked online.
As was reported by TryhardGuides last June, the footage shows a character resembling Qualley (who played Mama in Death Stranding) walking through dark corridors with a flashlight in third-person. The video is mostly quiet, save for some audio stings and the jump scare at the end, which cuts to a screen displaying “GAMEOVER”. That morphs into “OVERDOSE” with “A Hideo Kojima Game” appearing above the title.
A steamable link to the Overdose footage was subsequently taken down, but not before the video made it onto YouTube, which you can view below.
This once again leads into the recent hints that Kojima has been dropping regarding Elle Fanning and Shiori Kutsuna being involved in a new Kojima game. That’s on top of his studio, Kojima Productions, teaming up with Xbox Game Studios for his next game.
And while we didn’t get any word from Kojima during this past June’s Summer Games Fest regarding this project, here’s hoping that we’ll hear about it (or Death Stranding 2) next month during The Game Awards.
