Nintendo Power Previews
Cursed Mountain Preview
-Use Tibetan Prayer movements to exorcise demons.
-Enter the ‘Bardo’ or Tibetan Spiritual Realm to see otherwise invisible ghosts.
-Combat mechanics are why developer Deep Silver chose Wii.
-Wanted a survival horror that wouldn’t let you clutch the controller close, saying that the open armed movements make you feel ‘very vulnerable,’ which adds to the experience.
-The mountain itself offers exciting challenges, including a balance act that requires you to tilt the remote for balance as you cross a narrow passage.
