The new Silent Hills trailer, fresh out of Tokyo Game Show, will leave your skin crawling. It features rolling heads, cockroaches, possessed toys and grotesquely large create amongst other things.
“The one thing that I can say about Silent Hills, and this is something I’ve been discussing with Guillermo del Toro as well, is that originally we were thinking of making a game that would make you pee your pants, but at this point we’ve changed our minds, and now we’re aiming for a game that will make you shit your pants,” Kojima bluntly declared during the live broadcasted Konami event.
“One thing that you have to keep in mind is that, if a game is too scary, people just won’t play it. In movies or attractions … if it gets too scary you just keep your eyes shut and soon it will be over. But if it’s a game, people will just stop. So that’s why there’s a limit on how scary you can make a game.
“But in this case we’re totally ignoring that and, you know what? If you don’t want to keep on playing through the game, so be it. We don’t care. That’s the game we are aiming for, we’re aiming for a game that will make you shit your pants. So, players, make sure you have a change [of clothes],” said Kojima.
I personally don’t know whether to play it or give it a miss!
