Petscop contains themes of child abuse, child murder, pedophilia, incest, sexual assault, and kidnapping. If there is anything else that needs a warning, please let me know so I can add it.
For the uninitiated, Petscop is a creepypasta video series revolving around a strange video game. Instead of hacking or editing an existing game, however, its creator(s) decided to create an entire fictional game. The series can be found here. I personally think it’s more neat than scary, so check it out even if you’re a little squeamish. You should probably watch the whole show before reading the thread.
The series went on an unannounced hiatus for six months, and it suddenly updated on Christmas Day. Since then, I’ve been wanting to talk about what on Earth is even going on in this show.
Being an obtuse horror series, Petscop lends itself well to theories. The plausibility of these theories varies wildly from person to person, but don’t be afraid to share your wackiest ideas. If you want a fan-made “encyclopedia” of sorts for fact-checking, you can find that here.
But I don’t just want to hear about theories; feel free to talk about anything Petscop related. I’d like to here about what you think about certain parts of the series, or if something struck you about it. I’m personally fascinated by how well Paul pulls of the “mediocre Let’s Player” persona. It manages to be the charming sort of awkward commentary, rather than the grating kind. Do you agree?
