If you ever thought that creativity was that secluded corner where humans are safe from machine invasion, well, you need to find a new corner. Most people are oblivious to the creative adventurers of computer algorithms-a set of rules that are used to solve problems. So how can a computer algorithms be creative? David Cope built a highly sophisticated and refined algorithms to create music based on the works of great artistes but in his own style. Emily Howell,the algorithm, solves the problem of creating great music and symphonies.
P/S My Opinion: Human creativity is still highly distinguishable from the creations of algorithms.Read more >
Ugh. I love this game soooo much! However, I've been too busy with schoolwork, and my several extracurricular activities. And I know what you're probably thinking. Oh, Snow's soo lazy! In actuality, I'm not. I've involved myself with a basketball, swim, debate, and tennis team. A history club, anime club, and a few others I can't recall. Plus, my instrument lessons. I apologize for the absence, and I'll try to get active again.
But, I'd like to give thanks Azura, our moderator, and miko for keeping the wiki in good order.
DreadOut tells us the story is there but doesn't explain it to us, so you'll not understand the story even after you defeated the game - no matter how many times, you'll just scratch your head more and more. Intriguing isn't it? The whole idea of DreadOut and the story is so fascinating that people are craving for the answer - including you, evidenced by the fact that you even read this. Asking the developer themselves won't do any good, they'd just tell you to discuss it in the Steam community hub. So people jump into the bottomless abyss creating endless theories, including me.
First, technically there're three endings but let's talk about the true ending kind of thing because it's more interesting than the other two - continuity wise.

Hey y'all! Ever since I saw the DreadOut Trailer today, I just had to analyze the trailer. It's one of my pet peeves to observe and speculate and I'm pretty sure only 2-3 people will ever end up reading this, but I'm going to do it anyway :D
If you haven't watched the Trailer for whatever reason, then go watch it. Here, I'll do you a favor and post the Video here. Watch it first and then read my speculation, okay hun? Good, here it is:
Watched it? Good. Hold on to your hats because this is going to be a bumpy ride! (As a side note, if ya wanna, you can read my previous speculation on my blog if you want to make some sense of some of the references I'm making. It's not required, but it'll give you a bit of background on what I'm getting at.) …

Hello! I know I said I won't be doing any more 'Speculation Time' posts, but I just had this thought/theory that I felt that I really needed to get out there before I forget (I'm not known to remember things for very long).
Anyways, I was watching Bowlingotter and Lissysandwich play DreadOut on YouTube and they came across the whispering at the door which is triggered by Linda trying to open the locked door. I heard Doni's voice calling out and a couple other incoherent voices that I can't really pick out besides Ira's.
No one really knows what happened to the rest of the Gang. Many assume that they're scattered througout the village and are currently trying to find the others, just like Linda is, although Lin seems to be the only one capab…Read more >
He-hey! Guess what? The folks up at Digital Happiness were kind enough to upload some pictures regarding their progress on Act II. And as I've always done, I will cross-examine (sorry, I've been playing Ace Attorney :P) the pictures carefully and give you what I think on the matter. It depends, but I might skip some pictures (although I might examine them more if people want me to).
This will be the last "SPECULATION TIME!!!" I will be doing because DreadOut Act II will be releasing very soon. To be more presise, by the end of this year! So without further ado, let the cross-examination begin!
(Note: I'm on vacation currently and unable to analyze all these pictures at once, so I will do as much as I can in one sitting. There's not a lot of …Read more >
It's released a new patch. However I found some crash issues in limbo and I have that the run performance is drastically reduced, with the 3 items also. In this way the challenges vs scissor ghost and lady in red are become harder and frustrating especially lady in red where run is the way to avoid her long the hallways ( there arent shortcuts and secondary roads ). Before patch the run improvement with 3 items was the key to accomplish the game. Why this fix on run ?Read more >
I'm in a speculating mood today. Time to get some deep thought done.
Okay, so thanks to this friendly guy who posted in my previous blog, I managed to gather a relative amount of information concerning what's going to happen in Act II. Since in my previous blog it was concerning more on screenshots that may or may not have changed over development, now it's more of in-depth thinking and the sneakpeak of ghosts we got from a YouTube Diary.
Btw, thanks to that wiki contributor who replied to me and I'm sorry I haven't got to reply to it yet, but this is sort of my reply to it. I couldn't of made this speculation without your help ;D
Without further ado, here we go!

There's actually a good speculation here.
I remember when I was out to Garut 2 months ago, and a certain amount of places that I see had the name "Tirta" in it. The burnt-out residence-on-the-game's name is actually Tirta Biru.
Sooooo, speculation time everybody?Read more >
How long have I been away? Seems like I've been missing out like a lot of things in this Wiki. :P
Well, I've been lurking around here as an anon, so I would comply to have already left the wiki for almost a week now. With that said, I was technically out to Shibuya for a few things and a few days ago, but the primary reason why I was running off to Shibuya is because I just wanna sit, relax and enjoy the mightiest view of Shibuya. :]
And I almost forgot about this Wiki. I'm sorry.
So how is everybody been doing here?Read more >
Sorry for not making edits and all that in a long, long time. I recently went through a wave of finals, and I have two more tomorrow. After that, I'll be back :DRead more >
Alright, time for some speculation because if I don't post them, I'm not going to stop thinking and it's going to bother me during Exams. Before I start, I was having a chat with the DreadOut folks on Facebook an they say the release date for Act II is going to be late 2014. Well...at least it's this year :V Anyways, I gotta get some things out of my mind.
Also all these pics are from the Official trailer (except for the first one, it's from the DreadOut Guide)and its more about me trying to guess what's going on in the picture.
I'm going to assume this picture is after Linda escapes, because if this was the beginning of the game, Linda wouldn't have all these items, Shelly would have ran to the other side and we could probably glance …Read more >
I was just thinking, have any of you thought about camera phone Linda is using? Here's what I'd really like to point out and hear some opinions.
Only one of three slots of equpment screen is used during act I, so I expect there is more equipment to be coming. One of the possibilities is that you are getting more phones or something like that, but what I thought about is what about batteries?
As many of you might've noticed, the battery is slowly running during the game. It doesn't seem to be set on timer (i.e. it lasts 6 hours as you play and then it rans out), but set to decrease on events (i.e. certain events trigger it to slowly decrease, making it so it doesn't matter how long you play, it decreases only on certain points a certain amoun…

Not really an issue, but can anyone change the header colours, and the linking colours to something else other than blue?
White or black might've looking pretty good since both of those colours was used for the title.Read more >
As you know, I run another wiki. Which is the OBSCURE WIKI, a wiki about another, similar, horror franchise called "Obscure", which some of you may also know as "Final Exam" or "Mortifilia". The wiki there is a bit of a mess right now, and I could use some people who know their way around editing to help me out.
A BIT OF HISTORY ABOUT "OBSCURE":
Obscure was started as a "Resident Evil" competitor by french indie studio "Hydravision", which the game served as their first game and breakout title. The game was a financial success, but not critic wise (It got mixed reviews). The game played very similar to Resident Evil Outbreak, as well as the classic RE games. It was fantastic, and starred 5 high school students at their school trying to esca…Read more >
I have thoughts in mind on what's going to happen in DreadOut. Due to my experience watching/playing some horror games, I do know what are the likely endings or what's even possible. These are my thoughts and if anyone happens to read it, these are not what's going to happen, just thoughts.
I'm not that creative with names :P
Basically everyone escapes, but Ira stays behind/dies to protect Linda and Co. Since Ira seems like she's posessed, it's very similar to how Fatal Frame ended with Mio having to kill Mayu, her twin sister, who had been poessed by a ghost. This will symbolize and emphasize Linda's friendship with Ira and give the ending a bittersweet taste.
Everyone dies/is unable to escape except for Linda, who escpaes. This a possible e…

So ?!, DreadOut can make you scared shitless ?!
try it, with your own risk ,-Read more >
Did you darlings know? They're making a DreadOut Comic, although it has different characters from the game. Man, I really wanted to see Linda and Co. as a comic version.They wanted the DreadOut game to keep it's originality, so they changed the characters, apparently with a boy as the protagonist this time. Man, I might as well make my own comic adaption of the game, although I'll probably be to lazy to update it :P
Anyways, I don't when it's coming out or whether or not there's going to be an English version of that, but apparently they started working on the Comic adaption a little over a year ago. Two preview pictures were posted under deviantArt. The comic is drawn in a manga-japanese style from the looks of it.
I don't know much about …
