Lance McDonald, the modder behind a number of cool hacks in Bloodborne and Dark Souls, has turned his expertise to Hideo Kojima’s PT, discovering some brand new and absolutely horrifying information.
By unlocking the camera and moving the player character forward, it reveals the evil ghost Lisa is behind you almost every step of the way – quite literally, she’s attached to you.
She actually attaches to the player’s back as soon as you get the flashlight, here, I demonstrate how you can see some strange shadows. I then lock the camera in place and walk forward, showing how she’s always there… following you… pic.twitter.com/zarhwjNmZz

Fear of the unknown is something horror games tend to rely on to make them truly scary, yet in this instance, knowing the ghost capable of jump-scaring you at any moment is practically breathing down your neck somehow blows that trope out of the water.
“I only tweeted what I did because I’m confident I have enough other awesome stuff to save for a full video,” McDonald told VG247, suggesting that there’s even more intriguing yet spine-chilling content to come.
For context: after months of trying, I?ve finally patched P.T. to get manual control of the camera and get a look at some of the weird stuff that happens just outside of the players? view. I?m excited to show you weird, new things from a lost game. https://t.co/rsI336zIzS
