What if the player is the entity

What if you are the entity? As you choose who enters the Trial. And you watch the Survivors, but watch killers from their perspective...

    Maybe the entity isn't one being but rather much like the demon Legion or a hivemind.

    What if it's a simulation inside a simulation inside a dream inside a microwave and we are all just TV dinners

    I call bullshit! You can't see whole picture. Entity is the one who created this reality. Entity is the one who instill rules. Entity is the one who punishes killers [by nerfing them]. Entity is the one who feed hope [that DS will be nerfed].

    Sadly the devs just confirm that the entity does not watch the rial therefore the player can't be the entity.

    I actually came up with this, it's either us or the devs that are The Entity, the devs bring in the new killer and the survivor, and we summon said survivor and killer.

    Right but haven't they hinted at the Entity being a mysterious being, and things in the Entities realm aren't always super straight forward?
    Sure the Entity might not watch the ritual, but only because its controlling every actor in that ritual.

    So if we took this threads theory and ran with it, we (the players) act as the entities nervous system determining movements and actions/reactions, the devs (or designers) act as the architects of the realm taking these settings and characters and giving them a tangible representation and rules on which to function, and the server (currently killers machine, soon to be centralized server with any luck) is the manifestation of that realm.

    In that way the entity is a being comprised of everyone who directly interacts with the realm, and as such with each new person that plays the game the entities power grows as though it were to manifest a new tendril granting it even further power and influence (the literal example here is the more people that buy the game the more money the game makes therefore more content can be added to the game).

    Unfortunately I don't really think this is the direction they're heading in, but its fun to think about none the less

    Wow. Trippy.

  • Shad03Shad03 Member Posts: 3,673

    @PoppaSquat Now I wish that was the direction they would run with. You just made the best thing I've read in regards to this.

    No, no. Can't be.

    If i were the entity, i would have moris for SWFs, and there would be more leather and chains... uhm forget that last part.

    What I find curious then is the "Beast of Prey" (I think thats its name) perk. It's the one where you lose connection to the entity, but then whats the point of this connection if the entity does not watch or participate in the games?
