“One of our focus testers literally tried to jump on top of a table in the real world after the spider-human hybrid Crawler character approached her,” says Tripwire President and Co-Owner John Gibson. “She was screaming so loud that people from all over our office came into the room because they thought she was in pain. It turned out she just had a very large fear of spiders.”
“We had this really nice, soft-spoken girl at a trade show who thought Incursion might be too scary,” adds Project Lead Leland Scali. “As soon as she had two axes in her hands, everything changed. She started dismembering everything in sight and laughing like crazy. I was her co-op partner, and I swear, I barely got a chance to hit anything. She went on a rampage. I’ve never seen such a 180 in personality before—it was great.”
