Konami has set Silent Hill fans' pulses racing with some cheeky tweets from the publisher's official Twitter account. All it took was a gif of the iconic siren noise from Silent Hill and the message "Close your eyes. Always scary. Silent Hill 2 Siren" for the Silent Hill community to jump to attention, speculating wildly about why the company has chosen to refer to Silent Hill now. Close your eyes. Silent Hill 2 Siren pic. We won't take the tweet down and "backpedal", we just wanted you to enjoy it. So far so what, right? Silent Hill fans are ravenous for clues about the fate of the seminal franchise, but Konami was quick to quash hopes that there might have been a reason for this tweet. And then this happened:.
Silent Hill (video game)
A father and daughter are driving through a remote area of America when a ghostly figure steps into the road, forcing the car to swerve wildly. As the man regains consciousness, he realises the car is a wreck and his daughter is missing. Shocked and confused, he staggers into the nearby town of Silent Hill, where his nightmare truly begins. Loaded with dread, this scene could be the opening of a nasty horror movie. But the differences between Silent Hill and Resident Evil are profound.
Silent Hill 2 was released in and to this day is considered by many fans to be the best game in the franchise. Silent Hill 2 is an early entry in the beloved horror franchise that fans have latched on to for years. Arguably the most famous aspect of the title is its inclusion of the terrifying monster Pyramid Head, who after his first appearance in the game went on to become an icon of the series. Konami used this love recently to crush fans' hopes by accidentally teasing a nonexistent remake of the classic game. But just because Konami isn't doing anything new with the game doesn't mean people have stopped enjoying it. It also doesn't mean fans have stopped plumbing it for secrets. And recently, it seems, they've found a big one. By brightening promotional images of the game's intro, fans have discovered something shocking, according to Kotaku. During a well-known scene where protagonist James is seen staring at himself in the mirror, his reflection is actually looking straight at the viewer.
Silent Hill is the first installment in the Silent Hill series of psychological survival horror video games. The game was developed by Team Silent and published by Konami. Silent Hill 3 is a sequel set seventeen years after the game, while Silent Hill: Origins is a prequel taking place seven years prior to the game.
