Shinji Mikami's new game for Bethesda is - as we pointed out - a survival horror title called The Evil Within. He's the man who brought us Survival Horror, well, excluding things like Doom, so we should listen to what he has to say.
The main thing is that, "...survival horror has been drifting away from what makes it survival horror. And so I want to bring it back. Bring back survival horror to where it was", but there is more.
Before that, though check out the "trailer" for the new game:
Now, speaking to IGN (of course, when pimping a title the last thing you want is a critical set of questions) he says that, "Thematically, it?s less about having twists and turns and more about maintaining an air of mystery. So through the story you learn a little bit more, and then a little bit more, but the more you learn, you also realize there?s far more mystery out there to unfold.?
