Ashen Falls

2015.08.10

This week we saw the new Konami's vision for the Silent Hill series which left us pretty much devastated. So we've got nothing left, but to keep looking beyond Silent Hill and here's another promising project that catches our eye – Ashen Falls. Ashen Falls is a psychological survival horror set in an abandoned industrial town and following the story of a teen girl who's trying to get back to life after loss of her girlfriend in a fire. The game draws inspiration from the early Silent Hill series and motion picture settings such as Twin Peaks. The project is still in early pre-production, but, damn, those pieces of artwork created by concept artist and illustrator Gilles Ketting look really mesmerizing and haunting at the same time. Like some weird dream coming true.

Silent Hill Pachislot by Takasago

2015.08.04

We weren't expecting such sad fate for our beloved series, however pachislot slot machines are highly popular nowadays in Japan, and Konami made a number of Castlevania pachislo earlier. Basically, those were slot machines featuring vaguely tied together cinematographic cutscenes. Several days ago, Takasago, a subsidiary of Konami, published a short teaser starring Pyramid Head and today officially presented the Silent Hill pachislot. The presentation was held at the hospital partly stylised after P.T. The slot machine is targeted only for the Japanese market. So far we've got little information, but we can already see familiar characters on the shots from the presentation.

We'd like to remind that any kind of gambling may cause addiction which is true for pachislot machines too.

Update: A trailer revealing the new game's story which is closely connected with Silent Hill 2 has been published. The slot machine also has now a separate website.

Forgotten Memories

2015.07.28

Silent Hills cancellation left us with a broken heart and a void deep inside. The fate of the Silent Hill series is somewhat ambiguous for a moment, so we started looking around in order to fill this void with something else. Here's our first candidate – Forgotten Memories, a classic survival horror strongly influenced by Silent Hill. The first game of the series – Alternate Realities – is already available on iOS and is due to release on Android, Vita, WiiU and Steam later this year. By the way, SH fans will be able to hear two very familiar voices in Forgotten Memories lent by Guy Cihi and Dave Schaufele (James Sunderland and Eddie Dombrowski from Silent Hill 2).
