SuperMassive Games have designed a mechanism in the game where you connect your PS4 camera and face it towards you when playing the game. When a jump scare occurs, the mechanism will make the camera take a picture of your reaction.
Was first announced in 2012 as a PlayStation Move title to be released in 2013 on the PlayStation 3 but was eventually delayed to 2015, with SuperMassive Games switching development to the PlayStation 4 in 2014.
The character Flamethrower Guy, credited as such in the end credits, is not referred to by that name in the game. Instead he is called Mystery Man in the game's menu screens and Stranger in the game's subtitles. The developers also revealed that his real name is Jack.
Brett Dalton is the tallest actor to have his face and voice used in the game at 6'2, however in the game it would appear that Noah Fleiss, who played Chris, was taller. The reason for this is most likely that character's in-game models were not created to scale.
The setting of the game, Blackwood Pines, foreshadows the events in its name. The name Blackwood is a reference to Algernon Blackwood who wrote a story called "The Wendigo". Coincidentally, the Wendigos are the game's primary antagonists.
Dr. Hill is the only named character who is guaranteed to survive the game regardless of player choice. However, he is only shown as one of Josh's hallucinations, but his existence can be proven as he is referred to by other characters (Sam can find Josh's phone with text messages from him).
The game is set in Alberta, Canada where Wendigo attack the players and Chris is jump scared twice by a baby wolverine. In the X-Men comic books the character Wolverine is a native to Alberta, Canada and has fought Wendigo in the same area, including in his very first comic book appearance.
