Waking up in a lightly lit room, not knowing who I am or where I am. This Is how the playable teaser for Silent Hills starts. Otherwise known as P.T. At Gamescom this year, Sony showed off “P.T.” as a mysterious new horror game in development from 7780’s studio… which turned out to be a big fat fabricated lie.Well not entirely a lie but Sony definitely tricked gamers everywhere with this announcement. It turns out that “P.T.” just stands for playable teaser and the actual game is called Silent Hills.
The game is surprisingly being created by the maker of Metal Gear Solid, Hideo Kojima. He’s teaming up with the brilliant filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro to create a horror game that is meant to make people “Sh*t their pants”.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yyRdk9G39o]
Sony put the “playable teaser” on PSN for people to download it and try it out. Once i heard how scary it was, I had to play it immediately! Let me just start by saying that the game looks beautiful and very photo-realistic. It uses the same fox engine that Metal Gear Solid: Phantom Pain uses. But Kojima stated that the graphics shown in the teaser had to be brought down a little so that It could pass as an indie game to fool unsuspecting gamers.
There’s one more big reveal that was shown off at the end of the “demo”. It turns out that Norman Reedus( Actor known from The Walking Dead on AMC) will be lending his talents to play the main character in the game. He seems like he can fit into the role, since most leads in the Silent Hill games have been quiet lonely guys.
I have never gotten much into the Silent Hill series besides playing the first one. They always feature confusing puzzles and too much wandering around. But I love Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro, so maybe this “reboot” will pull me In to the series.
