Additionally to the scarabs/beetles present in the prologue, there are flies in some of the optional journal entry videos.

Arguably. Characters who have seen the creatures have their fears rejected by other characters even if the other characters have found evidence of them. The love triangle subplot involves characters misleading or lying to others.

No. However there is tension between a couple with a failed marriage. Depending on the player's choices, there's a flashback scene where the couple is arguing over the phone but there's no domestic violence present.

A journal entry mentions drinking champagne in celebration, and there is an ad for beer in the newspaper, but that is all.

Nick is a smoker, but the habit is not featured prominently. Blocks of heroin are found, but it is unclear if the owners are using them or just smuggling them.

It's possible for one of the main characters to have his hands tied behind his back for a small portion of the game, though the restraint isn't focused on. A character may also be handcuffed to a table briefly.

When a human gets infected, their front teeth transform into sharp fangs. Their mouths are often covered in blood.

Transformed humans have horns coming out of their fore head and have sharp frontal fangs. Their eyes look zombieesque.

The vampire creatures can kill multiple characters by smashing their heads/pressing their claws into their faces. Mainly the front of the head gets visibly, graphically damaged and the result is shown right after the assault and at the very end of the game.

Some characters have the ability to use a UV wand on the enemy, causing the enemies to burst into flames or stagger away. It's possible for characters to die in an explosion. It's possible for some characters to catch fire, their burnt corpse explicitly shown.

not buried, but a character can be ‘cocooned’ or set in a gross liquid which basically freezes them in time

Multiple characters can fall to their death if the player fails the QTEs. Some characters can be taken by the vampire creatures who fly into the sky and drop them down from a high distance. One character can fall down a hole and break his neck. One character can fall into the abyss and get impaled by a stalacmite.

One character cheats on another character. All three people involved, depending on your choices, will bring this up multiple times throughout the game.

Not in the traditional sense. At the end of the game, a person in a hazmat suit showers in their suit before proceeding with their task.

SPOILERS// 1. when rachel is with clarice after escaping the tunnel in the chasm claire begins to turn. you’ll know it’s coming because she coughs a lot & as someone with a severe phobia im very on guard and muted and looked away for the scene (it drags on for the entirety of the turning process) 2. heavy gagging when everyone teams up to push the doors to catacombs open, again clarice turning. 3. when rachel and salim play with the singing thing she looks like she’s going to ||| there are most likely more, however i only watched sean’s gameplay & to be quite honest i don’t care enough about the game to watch through anyone else’s, stay safe everyone

When people get attacked or slashed, you can hear the damage being done. The creatures make disturbing, screeching clicking noises.

One character wears a cap that reminds him of 9/11. The event played a significant role in the life of this character and is mentioned/discussed a few times.

i don’t feel like there’s a proper answer for this. there is a main character who is at first portrayed as ‘intolerant’ and racist but becomes very close to an iraqi soldier, which can be seen as propaganda. however in the ending there are government workers who are portrayed as morally wrong and uncaring

No, but one character (Nick) sometimes seems to zone out when experiencing traumatic memories from an incident in the past. This is a recurring thing in his story arc. No flashbacks or physical discomfort is shown, outside of Nick sometimes looking absent or distracted.

the main indicator that the creatures are nearby is a repetitive clicking/growling sound

A character can die by suidice, but it is a player choice. Another character asks to be left behind, which essentially leaves them to die

Two minor supporting characters make a few sexist, sexual jokes, including several "Yo Mama" jokes to one another. Two female NPCs will react against it.

No, but one American character holds racist and hostile views toward the Iraqis, describing them as feral. However, depending on the player's choices, the character becomes more sympathetic and experiences some character growth.

In one cutscene, Eric and Rachel are sitting in a car, next to a diner. After some talk, they're about to leave and then another vehicle crashes into them and the cutscene fades away.
