In the world before the internet, secrets and weirdness seemed to lie around every corner. Now that information is being exchanged by everybody everywhere at all times, it's a lot harder to feel like there's any mystery left. Everyone is watching everyone. Everyone but Camdrome.
Outside of some loose connections to Edmund McMillen, no one knows what the heck Camdrome is or who's making it. That makes the project all the more alluring and unsettling. An old computer monitor covered blood displaying intersecting segments of code and human beings -- that was Camdrome's showing on the PAX. Getting floor space at PAX is not an inexpensive or effortless enterprise. To use those resources to do display this kind of content is unprecedented, and there is no way of knowing where its all going.
These isn't much more to say about Camdrome at the moment. I received a personal email from 11 (at) camdrome (dot) com containing a unsettling email and an unlisted YouTube video (see below), but there isn't much here that I can decipher. My personal hope is that Camdrome will end up being a cross between Trash Humpers and Night Trap, but chances are slim that something that great could ever come into being. If you have any idea what this thing is, or what you want it to be, let us know in the comments.
