Hey guys, remember that badass little horror game P.T. You know, the one starring Norman Reedus and being directed by Guillermo Mother Fucking Del Toro? It lit a fire under the collective asses of both horror and video game fans, and as a member of both groups my buns burned that much hotter. When word got around it was in fact a teaser for an upcoming reboot of one of my favorite franchises, the aptly titled Silent Hills, well I just about shit a flaming brick.
While an in depth look at the Silent Hill franchise is an article for another day, suffice to sat it’s a series that’s been on its last legs for awhile now. The last couple games have been absolute shit, and its been going on a decade and a half since the franchise really peaked with Silent Hill 2 and 3. Basically, a new game with some real talent behind it was desperately needed. So yeah, a new Silent Hill game with Norman Reedus and Guillermo Mother Fucking Del Toro would’ve been a good shot in the arm.
And then, in the midst of controversy involving Konami and other bullshit I can’t be bothered to really look into, it was cancelled. Well, fuck. Looks like Silent Hill isn’t getting a good game anytime soon. But then out of the blue, comes a Kickstarter campaign for a game called Allisson Road, stated to be a “spiritual successor” to P.T. Then that got cancelled. Fuck. But finally, a few people managed to get their crap together and forge a publishing deal to get real funding behind Allisson Road and get this project moving, with a release later this year. So yeah, I was excited as hell, to finally get some bloody closure and maybe play a decent fucking Silent Hill game.
Except lol jk, because the studio behind the game just tweeted this shit out earlier today.
(Sighs deeply) Sometimes life just isn’t right.
Yeah guys, I think that I’ve just about given up one getting a decent Silent Hill game at this point. Hell, maybe I should just go play Downpour again. But probably not.
