Shadow Fear

Hey, sorry if this has been posted before, but I got a question;

On the trailer, there was a moment where Sam utters a big NO, and we see his shadow taking off his hat. I want to know if this scene, and other similar 'shadow' scenes that might be in this episode and future ones, can be correctly seen when playing the game in -7 graphic levels (which have no shadows).

Because there was that scene in the first episode that didn't show correctly without the shadows (the ring scene, which was hilarious, but I couldn't see it properly because playing with 7 above graphic levels make it lag a lot), and I'd hate to miss out on the sight-gags.

  • I hadn't even thought about this before. Now I'm concerned about it too. I have faith that Telltale had more foresight than I did and made sure that this was addressed, but an answer would be nice.
  • I'm sure they did something about it, what that is, I do not know.
  • I play with 4 and below and see shadows just fine. I have no clue what you are talking about

    Don't worry. For any shots where shadows are required for one reason or another, we do some tricks to make sure all will see the scene as intended... regardless of graphics quality levels.

    Since the ring scene was a throwaway we didn't graphics-proof it. We had intended to just make it so the ring scene didn't play for people with -7 graphics settings, but forgot.

    What Andrew said above, for the rest, though.

    I'll be honest with you: I wouldn't have liked that solution. People missing out on entire scenes (even if it's just a little gag) because their system isn't up to it doesn't really sound that cool. On the other hand, it would be a shame to stop creating scenes like this just because of graphic limitations on certain systems. I don't know what a perfect solution would be, but leaving scenes out of the game for some people isn't the way I would do it.
  • Makes the scenes more basic to run on basic systems.
    P.S. what ring gag?
  • This gag. If you don't understand it, watch this commercial

    The scene is hilarious anyway without the shadows, and thank godness you forgot.
