I think i found another movie reference

Post by Giromancy on Thu Feb 09, 2012 6:04 pm

Yeah, I think.....I was watching the textures of the game from the CD, when I noticed a detail, SMALL DETAIL by the way, when something caught my eye:

This is the texture, we can see references from:
CAT´S EYE (Novel by Stepehen King)
CARRIE (Novel by Stepehen King)
MISERY (Novel by Stepehen King)
CHRISTINE (Novel by Stepehen King)
KAZANIAN ANTIQUES (From the Movie ¨INFERNO¨ -Dario Argento)

But there is another reference to a movie that seems no one has noticed so far:

Image

Have you seen it?

What comes to your mind?

Haha. Great.

I don't think it shows up in the game though, does it? Same with "Misery" shop. Cool, though. Wow, that's a lot of Stephen King in one game.

I wonder if Stephen King is aware of these things.

It's great to just wander around the town and see what all references are hidden in the town, and what parodies of real life businesses you can find that may not have been noticed before. Thanks for posting these. Always interesting to see what the creators of the game like to throw in.

Just KAZANIAN ANTIQUES, CARRIE and MARIGOLD appear in the game, the other ones were deleted i think. I don´t know why, maybe too much S.King references in the game...

By the way, the CARRIE poster is different from the final version...

Maybe in a few months, Kotaku will pick up on it, the rest of the internet will follow suit, and this site's bandwidth will be swallowed in giant gulps and taken offline by the Slashdot Effect too! :D

Excellent finds, as usual!

We better not, this site's package includes unlimited hosting! I completely agree, Giromancy's findings have been fun reads and up there with Amy's and other's observances. I cant believe new things are still being spotted for this 1999 game. Love it!!

I found the same stuff using PSMPlay and put them in my blog but, although, I went through every inch of the town i didn't find the reference in the gameplay.

My Blog <<--Click

But the reference to Pennywise, that one I missed. mayve because my PSMPlay was the original beta versión and the definition was poor.

Yeah, the thread is about the pic of Pennywise. The other stuff has been on my site, Giromancy's site, yours, and many others for years, yeah...

I use PSicture to rip textures, haven't tried PSMplay.
