With six children, she still manages to visit these kinds of countries, traveling lightly, without much security, taking the same bumpy roads and dodgy planes and going through the same military checkpoints as I do when I report from conflict zones. There is no red carpet in Libya or Sudan. She still packs her own flashlights, notebooks, and waterproof gear. She made Blood and Honey with $13 million and a lot of humility. She approached it the way she does her job for UNHCR, like a student.

"When I go on a field mission, I get multiple briefings, including from the CFR [Council on Foreign Relations]," she said. "And I took a course on international law. So I did the same thing I did with missions. I studied."

For the film, she “read a lot of books about the war. I talked to a lot of people, I watched, I listened. I just wanted to tell the real story.” She repeated what she has said several times: “I wanted to be respectful of people.” If she did not know something, “I asked.” — Possessed By War by Janine di Giovanni in Newsweek, Dec 12, 2011 [x]

Uncanny Valley is a creepy nightmarish pixel art survival horror game with action and puzzle elements that features intense moments of dread and real consequences for your actions.

You play as a night shift security guard a strange research facility, who has problems with insomnia, often lapsing into a dream-like states while on the job, making the player constantly question what’s real.  As you explore the research facility, you’ll soon discover all is not well.  You’ll have to run, hide, use your wits and solve puzzles to live through this well crafted nightmare.

The consequence system of Uncanny Valley is a particular highlight, which draws some comparisons to Heavy Rain.  You can die at some points but they’re few and far between, for the most part whenever you fail at something, the game will carry on, but with real consequences for your character.  For example, if you fail to escape your attackers, your character will move slower for the rest of the game, making things that much harder. 

The Alpha Demo packs more suspense, dread and ‘oh shit!’ moments into it’s 10 minute playtime that most games horror games manage in 8 hours.  With it’s tense atmosphere, beautiful pixel art, intriguing story and real consequences for your actions, Uncanny Valley is shaping up to be uncannily good.
