After the fallout between Hideo Kojima and Konami gamers have been left with nothing but a Silent Hills pipe dream. If you still have P.T. loaded on your PS4 you’re one of the lucky few as it can’t be downloaded anymore, and should your PS Plus renew it automatically gets removed. Your Silent Hills experience will soon disappear into thin air. There is some good news though. There’s a team in the UK that’s working on their own version of Silent Hills. It’s called Allison Road and you should take note of it.
What started off as a one-man project has now evolved to a team of 6 members and it’s already undergone Steam Greenlighting. Everything about it resembles what you would have experienced in the P.T. demo. From a person waking up and not knowing where he is, clues to uncover, static radio (yes, very Silent Hill) and of course a super creepy little girl. Watching the video alone had me jumping out of my seat twice. If you’re not that great at handling frights then best you avoid the below gameplay trailer, which they say is of in-game footage. However, to avoid spoiling the storyline the below footage will not make it into the final game.
Here’s how the devs describe the game:
[quote]You will take on the role of the unnamed protagonist who wakes up one day without any recollection of prior events.
Over the course of five nights, it is your objective to uncover the whereabouts of your family, unravel the mysteries of the house, and face off against [dark entities] that are nested deep within the house, while the clock is relentlessly ticking towards 3:00am.
What would you do if you could feel something stalking you in the dark in the safety of your own home?
If you couldn’t tell what’s real and what’s not?[/quote]
Rumour has it that they’ve applied for approved for both PS4 and Xbox One licenses, so hopefully we’ll all get to play it. For now, if you’re a PC gamer you’ve got something special, and rather creepy, heading you way.
