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.
