  • no matter how short a scary game is, Matpat can always find lore and make it to a 15mins long video

    Is it bad I found Amanda's response to the sheep's apple allergy is "You should never be afraid to try new experiences" incredibly funny?
  • Xavier
    To me the stuff on Amanda’s eyes seems more likely to be wool. Especially cuz Woolie left wool behind, and also, the phrase “pull the wool over your eyes.”
  • Lord of CRINGE
    I like to imagine the developers watching this and taking notes of ideas.
  • jack frost
    it really shows how much effort they put into it, even making a new logo for game theory themed around the game.
  • Wesley Willier
    Matpat just gave me an idea when speaking about the monster’s “nodes” on its head. In the beginning, eyes are scratched out on the poster of the children. The background has things with eyes on them. When Amanda starts to get possessed, her eyes either hollow out or flip inside out. The nodes on the monster’s head could be the collected eyes of its victims, representing the souls imprisoned in the tapes.
  • Wolfrover
    The computer game interface for Amanda is a call-back to Dora, whose first few seasons had the conceit that Dora was actually a character in a computer game. This is why there was an on-screen mouse cursor at times. It also tied into the character's name, being a play on both exploradora (explorer) and computadora (computer).
  • EphemeralSean
    Matpat's "Say the right answer!" was honestly hilarious and terrifying.
  • Projekt Taku
    I love how Amanda gets mad when you don’t click what she wants you to click. I know it’s supposed to be creepy but to me, a child on a Dora-like show getting upset like that is hilarious.
    Amanda's silhouette reminds me of Micky Mouse and I for one find that hilarious.
  • VulcanX Plays
    I like how Amanda just casually changed her race when she got dragged into the VHS realm
  • For night trap, the game was originally planned to be on a playable tape. Tapes store data just like other devices and can technically play games, but discs are better
  • Benjamin Lake
    Definitely not an EEG cap. Looks a lot more like wool over the eyes, which makes more sense for a game with sheep in it
  • Xavior TheLycan
    MatPat: Can we just agree that it's a bit strange that we're watching VHS tapes but we're playing them like a video game

    Resident Evil 7: Am I a joke to you?!
  • Grimty Granule
    What's strange is that, despite the butcher already having meat behind the counter, Amanda still killed wooly somehow.
    The butcher didn't need it. Amanda just sucks.
  • Jimmy Rossmeissl
    Amanda: gets angry when you ignore her requests.
    Dora fans: “Get used to it”
  • Cedi Osman
    I forget if he mentioned this but remember when wooly said “it sure looks crowded in here” when they entered the apple store? That was probably because he can see all the souls trapped in the shelves (the ones with eyes)
