P.T. Spiritual Successor Allison Road Now On Kickstarter

The sting left by the cancellation of Silent Hills will never go away, but if a similar horror game has any say in the matter we could still end up getting a reasonable facsimile thereof. That game is Allison Road, and it has just launched its Kickstarter campaign.

The campaign is asking for $388,281, with over $100,000 already being raised and 28 more days to go. The finished project is expected to launch by the end of 2016 at the earliest. Check out some prototype gameplay for Allison Road that was released a few months ago if you haven’t already.

Silent Hills Spiritual Successor Allison Road Headed For Kickstarter

While it really sucks that the super-promising horror game collaboration between Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro called Silent Hills will never happen, a spiritual successor is in the works to keep that torch lit. The game is called Allison Road, which had some teaser footage released for it a while ago that was very much in the vein of Silent Hills‘ teaser, P.T.

Allison Road is being developed by a company called Lilith, which is a small team that obviously doesn’t have the deep pockets that Konami has. So, that’s why they are taking to Kickstarter to make this game as good (and horrifying) as it can possibly be. The campaign isn’t live yet, however, so we don’t know how much money they’re asking for and what rewards are offered for backing the campaign.

Is Microsoft Planning To Save Silent Hills?

A huge (HUGE) rumor is going around that was started by YouTube channel The Know that claims that a deal is in the works between Microsoft and Konami to save Silent Hills.

The channel claims that this information comes from an anonymous yet reliable source. Here’s what they claim:

– Microsoft is trying to buy Silent Hills and the entire franchise and make it an Xbox One exclusive

– Konami wiping the P.T. demo from the PlayStation Store was a show of good faith to Microsoft

– They are trying to get it finalized for an announcement at E3

– Silent Hills is 80% complete

– They are planning release the game in March 2016

– Microsoft going to fork over billions of dollars for the franchise

Now, I would want for this rumor to be true as much as anyone, but considering all of the above points it seems EXTREMELY unlikely. It seems crazy to me that Microsoft would pay billions of dollars for a franchise that really hasn’t been hugely popular in years. I also find it hard to believe that the game is already 80% and would be released in March of next year. From what we heard the game was in the very early stages when the P.T. demo was released last year, with the tentative release date being 2016/2017. Lastly, how the hell would Sony ever let Microsoft get away with this?

Again, I would love for this to be true, but we’re just gonna have to wait and hear from the big guys themselves regarding these rumors. If they are true and Microsoft has the announcement for E3, they would win the entire show with that news alone. Check out the video detailing these rumors below.

Don’t Ever Delete P.T., Because If You Do It’s Gone Forever

Guard P.T. with your lives, as if you delete it it will be gone forever.

I hope you haven’t deleted the P.T. demo from your PlayStation 4, as Konami has completely wiped it from the servers. Whereas we originally thought that those who downloaded it would always be able to re-download it, it has now been confirmed that that is no longer the case.

So, for those who have P.T. on their consoles, do not – I repeat – DO NOT delete it from your system unless you have no desire to play it ever again. This was a teaser that many loved and will no doubt cause even more auctions on eBay listing PS4’s with P.T. on them for several thousands of dollars.

In case you didn’t already know, P.T. was a teaser for a proposed new entry in the Silent Hill series called Silent Hills. It would have been developed by Konami with Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro at the helm, which seemed (and was) too good to be true.

Konami Confirms That Silent Hills Has Been Cancelled

The game that everyone has been anticipating is cancelled, but all is not lost just yet.

It was revealed over the weekend that the Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro collaboration of Silent Hills‘ future was looking grim.

Now, Konami has released an official statement to Kotaku confirming that the game is indeed cancelled. Here’s what they said:

“Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic ‘Silent Hills’ project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued.”

However, all is not lost as Konami also said that future discussion on Silent Hills projects with Kojima and Del Toro are underway. Here’s what they said about that:

“In terms of Kojima and Del Toro being involved, discussions on future Silent Hill projects are currently underway, and please stay tuned for further announcements.”

The ‘Silent Hills’ TGS Trailer Is Pure Insanity

More Silent Hills insanity coming right at ya!

A new concept trailer for Silent Hills was shown at the Tokyo Gameshow, giving those in attendance even more horrifying imagery to soak in.

The trailer has a similar theme that the P.T. demo had, with a person walking through a building as things slowly but surely get worse and worse. We have a ball that becomes a decapitated person’s head that then begins spewing creepy crawlers and a naked giant crawling down the hall on its way to kill you.

It’s safe to say that everyone involved with this game is mentally disturbed, and I love them for that reason. Check out this new trailer below. 

‘P.T.’ Is Actually A New Silent Hill Game From Hideo Kojima Called ‘Silent Hills’

Silent Hill is back with Hideo Kojima at the helm.

Sony innocently enough released a demo for a horror game called P.T. at Gamescom, with many just assuming it was another horror game in a recent slew of horror games.

Well, they were wrong. Upon completion of the demo, it is revealed that P.T. is actually a new entry in the Silent Hill series called Silent Hills that is being developed by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro, with actor Norman Reedus being the protagonist.

There aren’t any other details about the game yet, but you better believe more will be coming very soon. This is huge news, as Hideo Kojima is one of the most acclaimed developers in video games today and i’m beyond excited to see what he brings to the series. Check out the teaser for Silent Hills below.
