New Silent Hill inspired T-shirts


To celebrate Halloween, Konami has unveiled a new range of five Silent Hill inspired T-shirts by Gaya Entertainment (this company already produced some SH merchandise back in 2013). At the moment, you can pre-order them from Game Legends at the price of €19 with a broad selection of sizes from S to XXL. The T-shirts are expected to be released on 9 November. You can check the shop's shipment rates on their site.

Silent Hill Pachislot release


Today, Silent Hill pachislot machines begin to enter pachinko parlors all over Japan. Silent Hill fans from the rest of the world hardly miss anything. As we watched new gameplay videos, it became evident there is no storyline whatsoever – the game's just a chaotic set of cutscenes based on SH2. The soundtrack is substandard while the acid visual effects and jarring sounds of the machine complete the sad picture. Another disappointment from Konami after cancellation of Silent Hills.

Project Scissors: NightCry


Another notable horror title for SH fans – Project Scissors: NightCry. NightCry is a spiritual successor of the well-known Clock Tower series which introduced the iconic Scissorman character. The story of NightCry takes place in the middle of the ocean on the premium class cruiser liner and evolves around a group of American college students going back home from Europe. During the voyage the ship is shaken by the brutal murders of passengers and members of the crew alike. Soon the ship is adrift at sea and the heroes have to solve the murder mystery and survive through the horror. The project is lead by the original creator of the series Hifumi Kono and involves our old familiar Masahiro Ito (Silent Hill 1–3), Film Director Takashi Shimizu (Ju-on: The Grudge series) and Artist Chris Darril (Remothered, Forgotten Memories). The game is set for release this December on PC, PS Vita, iOS and Android.

Ashen Falls


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


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


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).
