Silent Hill 4: The Room is released in GOG


Konami has finally remembered that none of Silent Hill games previously released on PC are available these days on digital platforms (except Silent Hill Homecoming available on Steam in selected regions) while physical copies are hard to get. Today it releases classic Silent Hill 4: The Room, originally published in 2004, in for $9.99 / € 9.99. Let's see if Silent Hill 2 and 3 are to follow this good trend.

Christophe Gans is working on a new Silent Hill


Christophe Gans, original 2006 Silent Hill adaptation's director, has spilled the beans about a new Silent Hill movie in the works when interviewed recently by a french site AlloCiné:

"I have two horror film projects with Victor Hadida. I am working on the adaptation of the video game Project Zero (known as Fatal  Frame in the United States, editor’s note )The film will take place in Japan. I especially don’t want to uproot the game from its Japanese haunted house setting. And we’re also working on a new Silent HillThe project will always be anchored in this atmosphere of a small American town, ravaged by Puritanism. I think it’s time to make a new one."

Roger Avary, writer of the first Silent Hill movie has already confirmed he's not participating in this new project.

A cancelled Silent Hill by Masahiro Ito


Apparently, in 2013 there was an announced Silent Hill title in production (not Kojima's Silent Hills/P.T.) and Masahiro Ito was involved. He has revealed this recently by posting a small concept image from the game commenting "The beginning of its story". Unfortunately, Ito doesn't go into more details or post a higher resolution picture, but he does say "There were no monsters. However I drew so many concepts and so strange characters like Pyramid Head".

SH Origins prototype and SH PS3 pitch by Climax LA


As you probably know, Silent Hill Origins was first developed by Climax LA before the things went haywire, the studio was shut down and the game's development was handed to the main Climax office in UK who redesigned the game drastically for the final release. Andrew Borman of PtoP Online managed to get the original prototype of Silent Hill Origins and shed some light on this curiosity in his video. Borman's also just uploaded his footage of Climax LA’s original pitch for Silent Hill PS3 which was created back in 2006 before the closure of the studio. The pitch was later reworked as a stand-alone title Broken Covenant removing its ties to Silent Hill series, but the project was eventually scrapped.

SH3 & SH4 statues by Hellpainter


Yesterday at Wonder Festival 2016 Winter in the Japanese city of Chiba, studio Hellpainter, which produced a number of SH statues in the past, presented two new excellent statues of Slurper and Twin Victim. Visitors of the event could buy those figures for 15,000 and 18,000 yen accordingly. Alas, after the festival you can only purchase these from the auction sites as in Japan it's a common practice to grant a one-day licence for selling such products. At least, we can enjoy the beautiful photos.
