“Fear will take you”

Silent Hill: The Short Message is a short free-to-play game released exclusively for PlayStation 5 as part of the wider series revival.

"It deals with serious modern-day issues such as social media, bullying, and suicide, and concentrates the essence of the series - the feeling of being psychologically hemmed in and cornered into a short window. We hope that a new generation of players who are new to Silent Hill, and of course, our long-time fans of the series as well, will all take the opportunity to experience this game."

- Silent Hill Series Producer Motoi Okamoto

Synopsis

Following messages from her friend Maya, Anita finds herself at a crumbling apartment block, infamous for rumors of suicides. Drawn inside, Anita soon finds her sense of reality shattered as she encounters bizarre, otherworldly spaces, haunted by a twisted monster. Maya's message was clear — "can't leave til you find it" — but what is it that Anita is really looking for?
