Watch: Here's the best theory we have on Kojima's new game Death Stranding

Reedus and weep.

I love a good conspiracy theory. That's not to say I ever believe them - mostly I just enjoy snorting into my coffee while marvelling at the mental gymnastics that excitable, like-minded communities or fandoms are capable of. The best ones are a perfect blend of the ridiculous, a dash of wishful-thinking, and just enough facts to make the whole thing plausible. But, just ask the Game of Thrones crowd; sometimes, just sometimes, theories can hit the mark, even years before their intended reveal. And if not? Well hopefully they were ridiculous enough to be entertaining.

With that in mind, here's a theory I've been working on concerning what Kojima's new game Death Stranding - announced at this year's Sony E3 conference - is all about. I mean sure it's a little early to jump to any conclusions, given that the game only exists in the form of this teaser and a couple of planning documents hidden on Kojima's laptop, but where's the fun in that?

It's going to be a very long wait for this one, so we may as well keep ourselves busy. Let the speculation commence.
