WATCH: People are rediscovering the screaming video game and it is properly hilarious

Just don't play it on the bus.

2019 has already proven to be a landmark year with great video games, thanks to the likes of the remastered Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5, Apex Legends, Kingdom Hearts III, Metro Exodus, and The Division 2.


But in the last few days, a lot of people have only begun to discover a mobile game that is already starting to take social media by storm.

Scream Hero Go: Eighth Note Yasuhati doesn't have the catchiest title, but it does have an incredible gameplay hook - your little character on screen is propelled forward by the amount of noise you make into your phone's microphone.

Little whispers will jolt him forward incrementally, loud screams will send him soaring through the sky, and you have to jump between platforms, avoid little spiky creatures, and make it to the flag and move on to the next level.

Sounds easy enough, right?


Well, yes, except you'll often forget that talking also counts as noise, so when you stick the landing and declare "Well done!" to yourself, you'll likely send your little guy jumping off the edge.

It also leads to a lot of hilarious screams, shouts, and moans, as players begin to lose all concept of their surroundings as they get lost in the game.

Here are two of our favourites of people rediscovering the game in the last few days.

First up is Marie, who probably gave her neighbours some genuine concerns:


And here is Ryan, who oscillates between forgetting he can't talk, and making what we can only describe as overtly sexual noises to get his character across the finish line:
