‘Takeoff (Pressed)’/ ‘Stunlock’


Hedingham Castle


The term ‘stunlock’ is a shorthand used in video game communities. It refers to a common glitch in which you lose control of the playable character as a result of a snag in the game world.

The action animations of walking, fighting or jumping are still played - but the character remains stuck on the spot, caught in a latch as they loop these actions.

When the tampering within ‘Takeoff (Pressed)’ occurs, it causes the work to enter its own kind of stunlock.
