Hey Ashleigh, thanks for your comment!
Yeah, there were a few moments, especially whenever the whisper-creatures showed up that the story attempted to deviate from its original path.
However there have been statements made from the developers themselves that the remake will remain faithful to the source material. I'm sure that whatever we get in the end will not be too different to the original as they run the risk of alienating their audiences - let's not forget what this game represents for the company.
But only time will tell.
