Meanwhile, the wait for an actual sequel continues
As Silent Hill fans solemnly await news of a brand new release in the survival horror series, Konami continues to sub-license the brand out to other franchises. The latest horror title to step into the fog in Glowstick Entertainment’s Dark Deception: Monsters & Mortals, which will be joined by some recognizable faces, (well, for those that have faces), tomorrow.
Among the Silent Hill stars joining in Dark Deception multiplayer party action are Silent Hill‘s Cybil Bennett, Silent Hill 3‘s Heather Mason, The Nurse, Pyramid Head, and even the survival horror franchise’s comical mascot Robbie the Rabbit. Glowstick Entertainment has humbly spoken of its excitement to be involved with such a major gaming brand.
“It’s highly unusual for a small indie team like Glowstick Entertainment to obtain an IP as big as Silent Hill,” admitted the developer candidly. “We are extremely proud to have worked on it and we owe the opportunity to the success of Dark Deception and the passion of the Dark Deception community!”
“That said, this is a huge test for the Monsters & Mortals community,” continued Glowstick. “If the Silent Hill downloadable content sells well, downloadable content for other big AAA IP become a strong possibility. We definitely cannot do it without your help. So if you own Monsters & Mortals, but are on the fence as to which downloadable content to buy, this is definitely the one to get. Wishlist the game now and help spread the word! Get ready for Heather, Cybil, Robbie, Nurse, and Red Pyramid Thing to join the madness!”
This is definitely quite a coup for Dark Deception, one which certainly raises the stock of the niche brand, so kudos to Glowstick Entertainment. As for Silent Hill proper? Well, while its heroes and villains have been making frequent appearances in multiple universe’s it seems that the wait for that long-awaited new sequel continues.
