    James Riley, the creator of the the FMV game "Night Trap" and the exclusive holder of the rights to the title appears to be interested in re-releasing it in the nearby future. These plans were revealed on a fan page dedicated to the game.​
    Why should you care? "Night Trap" is one of the titles responsible for the creation of the ESRB, the video game rating board. Back in 1996, the game was actually removed from Toys 'R Us and F.A.O Schwartz store shelves. Night Trap was called anything from "shameful" to "sick" and was believed to "encourage efforts to trap and kill women" despite the fact that the objective of the game is the exact opposite. Yes, kids - this was considered to be the pinnacle of video game violence and adult material. It's considered to be a classic in the FMV games genre (not that there's a lot of contenders for the price) and perhaps we'll get to enjoy it again, this time in glorious high definition...​
    Sound the Next Gen alarm, the second era of FMV games is coming! :toot:

    Huh. From what I've seen that game is near impossibly hard to play even WITH a guide. That'd be fun for someone new to it.

    The Vita is not that desperately in need for software.

    The "end" was great. Although the panicking was hilarious as well.

    Maybe he could collaborate with Rocksteady - I'd love to see Batman tackle the Arkham Knight Trap.

    This means we're one step closer to a rerelease of Plumbers Don't Wear Ties.

    I may have to check that out. After Jontron left, I gave the series a solid go, but it just was never the same after 2 months without Jon, I called it quits and haven't watched it since. Which is something of a shame because I like Danny, he isn't as funny as Jontron, but funnier than ego, which made me realize that the ultimate gamegrumps is the coupling of the three that never happened, would have loved Danny and Jon playing together. Still I'll give the night trap series a go, maybe it will be enough to get me back into those guys.

    I've love to see FMV's have a second wind so very much! Now that times have moved on and developers have learned what not to do, maybe now they can create new and innovative ways in regards to what to do, or what did work and was just merely over looked because of the PSX band wagon.
    As far as this game is concerned, it's a gem merely for the fact that it's one of the first video games to not only feature live actors and violent content, but also one of the first (of many) video games with HORRIBLE acting! If there is such a thing as Best of the Worst for video games, this one would deserve to be near the top of that pile.

    Nintendo actually owns the rights to a porno named Super Hornio Brothers.
    ... all things considered, I'd rather stop the mental images right here.

    So the future really was FMV... Nah. :P
    I wonder how they would do it, considering the (wrongly) controversy of the '90s(But things changed, so whatever :P) and finding similar actress too.
