Capcom is well aware of your Resident Evil 7 finger frustrations


The mystery surrounding the dummy finger in Resident Evil 7 biohazard's demo isn't over yet, according to a flier sent out to Resident Evil Ambassadors today.

Several players have taken to Reddit to share the same cryptic message, which includes the teaser below:

Reminiscent of the good ol' P.T. days, Capcom released a Resident Evil 7 playable teaser following the game's reveal at E3. Players flocked to places like Reddit to swap theories and tear the demo apart for clues. What is the ax actually good for? Who's that ghost lady? Is that finger a key, or nah?

Many surmised that the demo itself wasn't meant to be puzzled over in the same way P.T. was, despite it being a stand-alone experience. It would appear, however, that the dummy finger has more of a role to play. It's not much, but at least we can take comfort in knowing that we're not alone in our confusion. According to Capcom, the demo has been downloaded more than 2 million times.
