Really don't think it's a crypt! Have another look at the picture of the house on the sign, I'm fairy sure it's the same door, even has the statues either side

Hey Bentley, when you check it out, find out what Rose's last name is. The carpenter that was killed was Frank Williams. Maybe Rose was his wife (although the carpenter was killed before Rose started tending to Emma, maybe she had already been there as housekeeper).

I watched this part of the video several times and freeze framed it. It might not really say Shady Grove. It doesn't show the whole name as the ends of the first and last words are in shadow. The more I looked at it, the more it looked like Russian letters. Or we only actually see HADY GROV, and our minds automatically fill in Shady Grove, when it really could be part of someone's name.


It IS SHADY GROVE. Was so cheeky to make a screen shot and zoom in this part.
It´s hard to see, but you can notice the left side of the S in the shadow and the E on the right side. lt´s a bit easier to see.

Can anyone understand what she is saying at the very end of the video? All I can make out is " I'm sorry"

I think she's saying, "I didn't mean to....I'm sorry." It's hard to make out exactly. If that is what she said, I wonder what she did to be sorry for?

Kinda seems Russian - so someone that was a Russian circus performer is buried in the crypt at Dire Grove in the UK. That's where the Russian circus performer and English nobility tie in, maybe?

I can see the face screaming too. Now I'm going to go watch it again and see if I can see anything else. Chasing something through the catacombs would be entirely creepy and I would love it. I'm happy I don't have any cats to jump on me while I'm playing. Though my DH would think it was funny to scare me so I'm not going to mention it to him.

I know what you mean, lilgirl. My DH would only ask me what time I'm coming to bed around 2 am. However, DD would do something like that. Kind of a game with her and her brother to try to scare mom because it's very hard for them to startle me.

I keep going over the video too to see if there is any other tidbit hidden somewhere.

BFG flew the director, film crew and actors down to Patagonia, Argentina to shoot the snow scenes as that was the "closest" place we could find where it was actually snowing in September...impressed now?

The game will have everything that you loved about RTR, plus much more!

Picman


Couldn't you have went to Blackpool Picman and us UK fishies could have come had a look and had more of a clue .

Weissvonnix is totally right - I looked at the close-up screenshot weissvonnix made and it really does look just like "Shady Grove". Thanks for sharing, Weissvonnix!

Darn - I'm still stuck on the circus/nobility connection!

Your welcome.

There´s one point l wonder about, why does someone name a building (crypt or manor) "GROVE"? And why are there roots at the portal sides coming from inside of the house?
Think it is a house, because the following scene is inside and you can see something like a opened door or a window..

I can hear her talking at the end of the video. I can't quite understand what she says first but I know she ends with "I'm sorry" Grrrrrr going back to the video now.

So I wonder if we are going to see this video in its entirety at the beginning of the game or are we going to see bits and clips throughout the game as we the "Agent" investigate the students disappearance.

Calling a manor house 'something grove' isn't that unusual in the UK, we have an awful lot of houses with an awful lot of daft names I still think that doorway is the main door of the house, same as on the sign, but maybe I am the only one that saved the original picture to be able to look!

Yeah, but this would be video clips, or something of the sort. College students wouldn't necessarily keep journal pages so it would be video clips. Looks like they filmed their entire trip, haha.

A video diary makes sense for college students today. My son and D-I-L were overseas on a thesis grant and took videos of everything. It's a great way to make sure you have all your info for the thesis.
