WayForward shows off their Silent Hill DS game concept

Watch live video from WayForwardTV on TwitchTV

Jump to about the 5:30 mark in this WayForwardTV stream capture to hear about Wayforward's ne'er released Silent Hill game. 

WayForward says that this work pre-dates Contra 4, from 2006 They put it together because Konami was interested in doing a portable Silent Hill back then. They used James Sunderland, some assets from Silent Hill 2, and their love of the series to put together this fully polygonal demo. 

It's short and rough, but I think it looks pretty neat. James looks surprisingly good for DS play, and I like the idea of the first-person bottom screen view. You can see that they've used a touch interface for puzzle solving with the piano, too. And even though this is just a demo, they lead with dead children in the first clue. Nice!

As a bonus, stick around to the 24:00 mark and see a second demo running on PS3. This eventually led to their Book of Memories.

Look, WayForward. If you ever end up making another Silent Hill game and forget to call me, I'll dive into a Scrooge McDuck-style vault filled with broken glass shards. Just listen to my Silent Horror soundtrack for proof that I have the chops for this kind of soundtrack. Jake can do the sound design.

What if Ganondorf and Link were... closer?

It was fun to see how the internet reacted to speculation that Link in the next Zelda for Wii U might be a woman. The response was very similar to how I imagined the world might respond to a Blasian Link. When it was revealed...more

Modified 3DS hardware created for Twitch Plays Pokémon X

It was slightly surprising to hear that the Twitch Plays Pokémon community is still active if for no other reason than I thought folks would have beaten all of the games by now. Not quite! There's still Pokémon ...more
