Ready to ask for P.T.?

Ready to ask for P.T.?

Because of Gamescom last week we didn't get a chance to propose any Project P.T. videos but it's about to change now. Obviously, everybody now knows that this playable teaser was just a clever trick Kojima played on us to announce the development of a new Silent Hill title by his own team. Considering how effective and spooky the demo is, Silent Hills, plural, could very well be the game fans have been waiting for. Until we can find out more about it, turn off the lights, take your headphones and check out our full walkthrough of the best marketing move in years.

Did you check the bathroom? That's why.

If i remember correctly, konami only pointed out which platform on where to find the playable teaser. They did not point which platform on where to find the actual Silent Hill (s) game.

So it's probably coming to Xbox and PC too.

Who said otherwise?

Yeah i'm sure if this was a full Sony exclusive, they would have told us right then and there.
Commented on 2014-08-20 00:53:22
it's been widely speculated that it was an exclusive, or at least timed exclusive. In which case, no such word was given.

So you go through the same corridor 10 times with a bit different things happening? looks quite boring. :p

Was Groundhog Day boring to you? :)

Would be amazing if Akira Yamaoka was on board for the sound too :)

Coolest thing out of gamescom. So good.

A testing in frustration and randomness, and motion sickness, for the most part, but liked the idea...and it did offer one jump.

Does make me want the silent hill to be first person...this wouldnt have half the impact if it was 3rd.

I also wouldnt mind seeing something like this worked into a game based on an idea of different short nightmares and strung together by a narrative, i think that could be pretty cool.

I wonder if it'll be Project Morpheus compatible? I know this kind of horror theme has been done before with FEAR and even Condemned, but I couldn't help get the same kind of vibe I got when I first seen Resident Evil for the very first time all those years back. There's some great design in this. Imagine Resident Evil remade in this style with these visuals, wondering the original mansion wearing a VR headset. It'd be fucking immense. Won't happen, but still. If this does get made with VR in mind, then they should ship it in a bundle with extra underwear as optional.

I'm sure the actual game will be third person, MAYBE with a first person option or new game plus mode. As a game developer, you don't go through the effort of securing a Norman Reedus with the only intention being to show him off in cutscenes.

Bingo, i mean why go through the trouble of modeling a character of someone real if all you need is their hands? "oh we picked Brad Pitt as are main character because his hands are so perfect!!!!!"

lol, Anyways the end of the Silent Hill (S) video, it specifically says in text. "This game is a teaser. it has no direct relation to the main title".

so basically, the playable teaser is not in any relation to how silent hill s game will be or play.

Right. Purely a marketing tool. A brilliant tool, but not at all representative of the actual game. At most maybe we'll see some sections of the game in first person since the reaction to this has been so positive. But definitlely not enough to warrant Morpheus support. But also, I can't imagine them splitting things up like that. So I'm still putting my bet on it being a very attractive version of the silent hill we're all used to.

Well, Kojima did says that if he ever do a Silent hill game, it would be:
"...in closed room setting and doesn’t require full action so that we can focus on the graphic quality. Enemy doesn’t have to be a lot or move fast. It only requires scariness by graphics and presentation."
So we still get action, but not all the time like previous games, when you can kill everything in the room and feel safe.
Commented on 2014-08-20 10:06:32
For me, a good horror games is the one that always keeps the tension ON. I should not be allowed to kill everything in sight, I should have limited resources..it's very hard to do that in a gaming world where gun customization and unlimited ammo is trend. I hope this games shakes things up!

didn't they do EXACTLY that in the walking dead game with norman reedus?? oh, and escape from butcher bay with vin diesel? so developers do it...afterall, these are actors...they do their acting in the cutscenes.
Commented on 2014-08-20 12:12:25
In silent hill 4 "the room", the game alternates between the first person and the third person.
Maybe that is what is gona happen.

SHS ... 2016 or 2017 sad
Commented on 2014-08-20 16:32:41
it actually gave me headache and feel sick with the blur and the movements of the character etc
Commented on 2014-08-20 16:55:46
Absolutely tremendous. Too bad I honestly cannot bring myself to play horror games. It makes me sad how long we are going to have to wait!!
