Control is an experimental journey through not only a new world inhabited by beings called The Hiss, but through the mind of our protagonist. Jesse is the new director of an agency investigating the paranatural happenings in the world. She is chosen, not only for being in the right place at the moment, but because of her history with such events. Today, Austin is diving into the science that may explain exactly what happened to her and how she may have just created her own brother... Yes, you read that right.

I'm upset you didn't mention the SCP Foundation at least once. They have so much in common that it seems that it is inspired by it. Or at least not inspired by the Foundation itself but more the uni/multi-verse of it.

Dear Austin, Hi, i am a HUGE fan of your work. I love how you take something like Overwatch or Minecraft, and then just crack into the logic and science behind it. With Matt, he’s always like “It’s just a theory!” But not you. It is proven by the scientific Method AND I FREAKING LOVE IT!!!! Now to get to my point. A few weeks ago, Kazuya Mishima from Tekken was announced for Smash Ultimate as the 5th character of the season 2 fighter pass. One of his moves in that game, his down special to be correct, was called Heaven’s door. Heaven’s door is an attack where Kazuya literally grabs the opponent, flies them high up into the air, and then crash them back down

I know Matt already did a video similar on Ridley’s Side Special, but I feel that you, doing this, would be just INCREDIBLE! sincerely, Me (p.s. I’m sorry I had to write this in two parts, I ended up pressing comment before I could finish)

Heres an idea that might just break you like it is to me RN. How in the everliving hell does the gusts of air in the ground of skyward sword work, it cant be just a gas bc it would have to be such a large pocket that the ground would set after it depletes or gets low enough, and it cant just be something heated because they're also IN the sealed ground SO HOW?!?!?!

Ahti is definitely a member of the Board. He starts the game by saying you're here for an interview and that you'll work for him. You then have an "interview" (by the board's standards at least,) and become director. Ahti can go anywhere he wants in the building (including past the ashtray maze,) no one really knows who he is or where he's from, and he helps you throughout the game. He's even present in your mind when the Hiss tries to possess you.

On one hand, the Ordinary department reports mentioned a few kids that the interviewees named but the town records lacked. This lends credence to the projector making people. On the other, neither the therapist nor the FBC calls Dylan out as a new/nonexistent person.

Ahti is an old god, you can hear Trench describe him in the assistant hallucination. He says sometimes he a plumber, to remove the fish from the drain, but he's also the one who put the fish in the drain in the first place. I think this implies that he knew about the hiss and tried to prevent them. Further evidence, when you finally get through the Ashtray Maze, you can find a transcript from a guy working there that says only Trench and Darling has access through the maze, and somehow he saw Ahti cleaning on the other side, and wondered how the hell Ahti got through. He's also shown earlier in the game to be able to travel through different dimensions somehow.

Okay but what about the implication from the psyhcologist recording that Jesse herself is from an alternate universe? Do we know that the people disappeared at all? What if they were already gone for some other reason, and Jesse/Dylan travelled to a version of Ordinary where they were gone using the projector?
abateu 8 օր առաջ
Love the work you've done but I feel like saying "Duuuuh". I thought this was obvious in the story that they are the same. Even one of the last stages has Jesse's voice projecting from a projector that you must destroy. You are destroying your connection with the world and the hiss at the same time, becoming both the savior and the threat

Games based on debunked scientific theories are incredibly interesting. While they may not be correct to our world, imagine a world where they're law. If it leads to quality games such as this, I'd love to see more developers take on the challenge!

I picked up on this while playing, specifically the board saying "Jesse/Dylan" and Dylan's only child story. When they didn't address it after finishing the main quest (shutting down the slide projector portal), I interpreted the lack of bringing it up again as the board being out of touch with how our universe works, and Dylan trying to mess with her. It's hardly a revelation to pick up on. Which kinda makes it frustrating because I only played the game because of this video so I could watch and not be spoiled.

The janitor, Ahti, shares his name and a few tiny similarities with a Finnish folk hero (who there seems to also be a debated connection to a Finnish god, Ahto, possibly even the same person at different points in life). Frankly, in the Wake universe, I'm willing to assume he is that hero and maybe god, or at least what inspired legends of that hero and maybe god, until the lore actually say's otherwise. Worth noting is that Ahti is often referred to as "The Islander" in folk poetry, which should raise flags, and Remedy is Finnish so it's reasonable to assume people involved may know of these myths and chosen to either use (clearly altered sure) or at least borrowed from them. If he isn't meant to be the same Ahti, he's probably at the very least inspired by him.
David GN40
David GN40 9 օր առաջ
That makes sense. From The Foundation DLC, we learn Ahti is a Paranatural entity. A lot of the music he listens to is also made by the "Old Gods of Asgard", comprised of Odin and Tor from Alan Wake, who gained powers akin to their namesake Norse Gods after being touched by the Dark Presence. I definitely think Ahti is the same Finnish folk hero, in some capacity at least.

I don't get one part. If the Slide Projector 'projected' Jesse's shadow out of her into Dylan... How come she is still the way she is? She says that she feels like a part of his missing, yet she does seem close with her Animus. She's independent, almost cocky in some dialogues, resists authority and her position as the director... But to also counter my argument, later in the game she finally agrees to take the mantle of the Director. She calls herself that, she decides to literally take control. Not just driven by the desire to find Dylan, but to actually protect and work with the FBC. I like the theory, just think this part should be addressed. If she 'lost' Dylan, her Animus/Shadow, she would be far less masculine. If she still is as masculine (not in the meaning of wide shoulders and beard, but rather showing phychological traits classified as being more on the masculine side), then wasn't Dylan just 'copied' out of her? But if that's the case, then why does she feel she misses something?

Sounds like good theory, but switched. Jesse is the construct of Dylan's subconscious. Dylan believes that Jesse and Polaris left him to be caught. This idea has been fed and bred by the hiss and pretty sure the agency. Jesse and Polaris were bound. Jesse hears Polaris, but never sees. I do not count the initial interaction prompting at dumpsite. Then again Polaris, at the end, claims to be present in the shielded container. To low and behold be absent in the reveal. Polaris voice is not such a thing. The Voice of Polaris is a frequency, just like the Hiss. It adept to pair with frequencies with certain rages. Stopping...too..long
