Silent Hills (Cancelled video game; 2015)


Silent Hills was to be a horror video game, a new installment in the Silent Hill series.

The game was announced in 2012, and was going to use the Fox Engine. On August 12, 2014, a teaser titled "P.T" was released, under a fake developer name: "7780s Studio". The teaser was later revealed, after playing, to be a teaser for a new Silent Hill game. The demo featured the player wandering around a house with no immediate reference to Silent Hill, later seeing the protagonist wake up in Silent Hill.

In 2015, director Hideo Kojima was scheduled to be laid off by the end of the year, which left the fate of the game uncertain. Until, in April 2015, the game's co-director annonuced that the project was cancelled. [1]

Unfortunately, at that same time, the free demo was no longer available for download at the PlayStation store online or on the PlayStation 4. Footage of the demo can be easily found on the Internet, as many popular You-Tubers covered the demo before the project was scrapped. It was also recently rumored that Konami also destroyed many of the last known copies of the demo after the project was shelved, and after Kojima left the studio permanently.

One of the biggest reasons why no one fucking likes Konami nowadays. What they did to Kojima after all he's done for them is completely unacceptable.

Dude. People have been hating on Konami in the arcade/DDR scene for ages, since before Jim Sterling brought up #fuckonami.

Wonder why Kojima has so many worshipping fanboys.

Aranea here. I have played most of the MGS games and they certainly have their flaws. Especially with how filmic the games turned into. (Long, LONG cut-scenes with super convoluted writing.)

Anyway. Kojima is kinda worshipped because a) he created a popular game franchise, b) he's a down to earth nerd like the rest of us, and c) especially after 2014-15 Konami shenanigans, he looks like some unfairly maligned good guy who was booted out of a company by greedy executives. (Which is true. Konami want to manufacture arcade and gambling machines with Silent Hill and MGS branding. Yikes.)

I have a hard time finding another video game creator with that level of worshipping and name-dropping.
