Not so long ago little game series called Silent Hill released a rather big surprise for their fans in the form of a playable teaser – for all those who are not sure what Silent Hill is: it is series of horror survival games set in a rural town called “Silent Hill” where all things creeptastic goes down. You play an ‘every-man’ character as per usual; the first game involves you searching for your missing adopted daughter in Silent Hill. The game contains plenty of things to be frightened about from cults, unfriendly nurses, pyramid heads and everything that will haunt your dreams.

For this P.T. let’s say Sony has stepped it up a notch in the oh-my-sweet-god-jump-out-of-my-skin meter. On August 12 2014 Sony announced the P.T. and made it available on the Play Station store and exclusive to the PS4, once the player completes the P.T. (you’ll have to solve a series of puzzles throughout a very haunted house of course) the true ‘identity’ of the game is revealed to be ‘Silent Hills‘ a continuation of the series.
It was intentional to not have any references from the actual Silent Hill series apart from the name “Lisa” on the wall in reference to the Lisa Garland character in the games, thank god I rather not have a video game suddenly know my name and seeing the words “Forgive me, Lisa. There’s a monster inside of me.” I’m sure plenty of Lisa’s all over the world including me dashed for the exit yelling “I forgive you! leave me alone!”
Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead fame serves as the inspiration for the game’s main character and famous film director Guillermo del Toro assists in the direction of the game with Hideo Kojima at the helm.
P.T. has been downloaded over a million times, and had been viewed over 30,000,000 times.
The Silent Hills P.T. alone has been conversed about with such praise and horrified screams that people are pretty sure this game will make it to the league of the scariest games ever created.
You can play the game or even better…watch as other’s play the game! the joys of the internet and watching other people jump out of their seats!
So why venture through this horrifying P.T. all on your lonesome when you can witness the cries and panic of other gamers and especially those that make entertaining ‘Let’s Play‘ videos? they would prepare you if you were to play during the cold Halloween night or for entertainment purposes to get your revved up for your horror movie fest.
