The first time you eat a piece of fish, you might recognize that it was likely tainted with some disease or the other, and this might cause you to recoil from the fish in question. This is the case in dengue, which is an illness carried by people that live in tropical areas of Asia. It is caused by a bite or skin infection of a mosquito that usually bites during dawn or dusk when people are awake.
The mosquito that causes dengue isn’t the same kind of mosquito that causes the other kinds of mosquito-borne diseases. These are much more deadly, like malaria and yellow fever, are carried by mosquitoes that are very active and are spread by people who carry them inside their bodies. So basically we’re talking about the same mosquito, but the diseases it causes are very different.
One of the first things you learn about a new disease is that it isn’t a new disease, and that it’s caused by the same thing as these other ones. But the fact is that some of these diseases are more deadly than others. Dengue fever is caused by a mosquito that bites people during the day. Yellow Fever (malaria) is caused by the bite of a mosquito that kills people in the night.
So here’s the thing that keeps me from getting excited about the upcoming story trailer for Deathloop: It’s not like I’m not excited about seeing a bunch of new creatures, I just have the general feeling that I’m gonna die of a dengue or yellow fever within the first five minutes of playing. The only one I’m excited about seeing is the one that gets me to the end of the trailer. That’s the part I feel like I can’t get out of my head.
You know what’s even better than the new trailer for Deathloop? The story trailer. The one that tells us that the dreames have been infected by a bite that has turned them from normal mosquitoes to a bite that can kill people in the night. Thats what you get for being a bad person.
You can’t get more meta than that. After all, the story trailer should tell us something about a story. Yet you can’t help but get attached to a story that seems to be told from a completely different perspective. The fact that the story trailer is titled Deathloop should tell us something about itself. The fact that it’s talking about a virus that has turned normal mosquitoes into dreames should tell us that it’s talking about something else.
Of course, the story trailer for Deathloop isn’t actually about a virus, but a lot of the same things as the story trailer for the game. The story in Deathloop is about being forced to kill (by force) a lot of people, about being killed by them, and about being able to return to normal by becoming a normal human being.
After reading the trailer, I guess I should leave it aside so as not to spoil it. The game is written by a guy named Mike, who’s a big fan of the story trailer and the game.
As you can tell from the trailer, the game is written in a very serious and dramatic style. From the very beginning of the trailer, we see a young girl being bitten by a mosquito. We see her screaming in pain and her looking at the blood of a dead dog. We watch a man walking around a cemetery, which I guess is supposed to be a kind of an undead graveyard, and we see a man who looks like a bloodied zombie.
The game’s story is told through the eyes of Colt Vahn. We see the game’s protagonist’s character grow into a man, and we see him take on the role as the leader of the Visionaries. Colt has a couple of interesting decisions to make, like saying “I’m not a leader. I’m a zombie. I’m a zombie leader. I’m a zombie and I’m a leader,” which really takes some getting used to.
