Her Story by Sam Barlow was offered ‘exhibition’ in exchange for being put in a Tesla

In what turns out to be a strange turn of events, and possibly the slow death of Twitter, Elon Musk has finally bought the social media platform. In light of the news and amid the various complaints on Twitter, a few stories surrounding the SpaceX CEO’s past efforts have emerged.

In case you haven’t already played it, check out the trailer for Immortality here, which comes from the team of Sam Barlow at Half Mermaid Productions.

One of these stories comes from Sam Barlow, the designer of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and creator of Her Story, Telling Lies and Immortality. Taking to Twitter after news broke of Musk’s purchase of Twitter, Barlow shares that he was once asked to put his story in a car, with no payment other than “exposure.”

“Tesla once reached out to ask to put his story in a car. I asked how much they would pay for the license and to cover the engineering work – they suggested zero, and that I consider the exposure I would get,” Barlow’s tweet read.

The game designer then responds to his own tweet by stating that “His story in a car is still one of the dumbest ideas I’ve heard.”

It also looks like Sam Barlow wasn’t the only one who got the offer to put his game in a car without payment, with Untitled Goose Game developer Cabel Sasser jumping in on the thread to say::Goose. »

I don’t know about you, but adding games to cars seems like a strange concept to me; Is there a market for people looking to crash their car? Tesla hasn’t been the only company looking to merge video games and vehicles, with BMW teaming up with AirConsole to add games to its cars.

All I’m saying is that the game should probably stay on the devices it’s intended for and stay away from vehicles. We already have our phones in cars, which seems like a pretty bad distraction for some people; I don’t believe games in cars are any different.
