Here’s the final trailer for Immortality, which Sam Barlow says was written with ‘very few f**ks given’

There must be added pressure to create a particularly cool trailer when your game is both literally and figuratively about dissecting movies. I doubt that the additional anxiety fazed Sam Barlow much though, as chopping up clips is fertile and well-trod ground for the creator of Her Story and Telling Lies

Barlow is the writer and director on Immortality, which again involves the player investigating archival footage to piece together the parts of a mystery. Immortality’s evolutionary step over its predecessors is that it uses match cutting—think the spinning bone being replaced by a spaceship in Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey—to enable players to jump between clips based on a shared visual similarity.
