When I heard that Akira Yamaoka won't be doing the soundtrack I felt sad. Really. Though, I've read recently that Daniel Licht (Dexter) will be making the soundtrack for this project, so I think it isn't really that bad. Can't wait for a proper trailer.
By the way, why isn't this made by the guys who developed Shattered Memories? They seemed to grasp the Silent Hill experience pretty well.

Yeah, Tomb Raider is Uncharted with a lady and Silent Hill "looks like Alan Wake". :D

You know you're getting old when people around you don't have a grasp on what influenced what anymore.


@ hisshi

Yeah I'm intrested in hearing more of the music too. I wonder if they'll have actual songs in there now or if they'll settle for a score.

Alan Wake vibe.
Probably a good thing. Alan Wake is the game to beat in the suspenseful psychological-horror thriller genre that has been the staple for most games in the Silent Hill series, and where in recent years Silent Hill has seriously lost it's way, Alan Wake has picked up the torch and carried it to new heights.

And although the largely overlooked SH: Shattered Memories on Wii proved the Silent Hill series can still be relevant to the genre, the developer for Downpour however, is a largely untested developer, so there is plenty room there for them to miss the mark.

As a long time fan of the Silent Hill series, I'm personally rooting for Downpour to be awesome, and for Silent Hill as a premier franchise, to return to relevance. And after playing Alan Wake last year, I am seriously jonesing for some more proper psychological scares to make a return to games in general.

. . . now if only Silicon Knights would get around to making an Eternal Darkness sequel . . .

Normally Silent Hill wouldnt look much of anything like alan wake. its usually an unusually foggy city street at best. but here there is a much bigger resemblance to Alan Wake with the mountainous scenery and the town.

Alan Wake was in dev for a long time, plenty of time to influence this game's visual style. Perhaps its just a coincidence but it is notable.

I didn't notice any Alan Wake similarities, but hell if it doesn't look nice. So far it has convinced me to give it a try, especially after these screenshots... will wait for some gameplay though.

Silent Hill IS a mountain town. You've done plenty of trekking through the woods in those games, albeit not very welcome ones in The Room :(. Damn ghost stabbing.

Is Milla Jovovich starring in this? If not then Konami better hope she doesn't sue them for using her likeness, lol!:

I'm disappointed that Akira Yamaoka isn't doing the music too, but the reason is probably because he's actually left Konami and joined Grasshopper! (I'm hoping he'll still do the music for the Silent Hill 2 movie though, like he did with the first one.)

Well this game use to be a graphical showcase for all systems. It doesn't look like that is the case anymore, but I'm interested in seeing the game. I haven't played a SH game all the way through since the first one.

Great Post.

And if I may add, Alan Wake didn't intrude in the genera after the Psychological Survival Horror Sh offered in the past, it's Psychological in the same veins as Max Payne is a Psychological Character Analysis. Its a Suspense Ride in a Horror Setting, it can be as much action game as Max Payne if not more when it tries, and more Psychological suspense when it wants to (Max Payne family killing, painkiller trip with baby cries). Its a Max Payne sequel in all angles I see, not trying to be a SH Clone. The good thing i think, is that in plain visual side it make so much strides in the "survival horror" cliché of grainny yellow filters with good post-processing effects to add Atmosphere (wind, dark nights, clear nights, light effects, trees) it up the genera a bit in that department.

And I agree, I hope they find the source of what makes SH good, and try to make it a unique look (the downpour setting) than just a clone of the film like homecoming was sometimes, and indeed bring great and creepy characters.

There better be a Prison Soap Monster, or no buy. No really, if they just fanservice the old monsters instead of monsters related to the character's prison past and inner demons, it'd be just like Homecoming.

I wonder how a convicts "Silent Hill" will be? Maybe he murdered someone and now feels deeply sorry for it. But Silent Hill will teach him a lesson regardless. Who knows?
