Watch us get wet playing Resident Evil 7

The game is a challenge for weak hearts and bladders

Simone de Rochefort has been producing & hosting YouTube videos for Polygon since 2016. She co-directed the upcoming documentary The Great Game: The Making of Spycraft.

It’s no secret that I’m a scaredy-cat.

Much laughter was had at my expense during E3, when the Polygon New York team crowded into a tiny room to watch Polygon editor-in-chief Chris Grant play the latest version of the Resident Evil 7 biohazard demo. While I cried and yelled at my boss of four months to stop fucking around, other Polygon staff whispered about upcoming scares and waited eagerly for my reaction.

Now you, too, can enjoy watching a woman slowly lose her mind, tortured by a fear that she cannot control. I’m talking, of course, about our gameplay video of Resident Evil 7.

Engagement editor Jeff Ramos and I sat down to play the first hour of the game — with a twist. I was holding a full-to-the-brim glass of water, and if I spilled three times, I had to play the game.

Let’s just say by the end of this video, I am very wet, and I have to pee very badly.

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
