Silent Hills Would Have Possibly Interacted With Your Real Life Phone And E-mail

The cancelled game reportedly had features relating to real life devices.

Silent Hill

When it comes to infamous projects that never were, Silent Hills is probably at the very top of the list. After an inventive teaser in P.T., the game would have been a revival of the horror brand helmed by Hideo Kojima. The game never officially entered development before Kojima and Konami parted ways and Konami largely stopped creating major console titles. The question will always be, ‘what could this thing have been?’ Since Kojima ended up not creating a horror game after forming his own studio (though Death Stranding does get a bit spooky) we very well may never know. But today we did get a potential piece of information about a unique feature the game would have had.

Alanah Pearce, formerly of IGN and now working at Funhaus and Inside Gaming, was answering some questions about what she’d heard about projects that had not been revealed yet or cancelled and when asked about Silent Hills, she said she had been told that the game would in some way interact with your e-mail and phone number, sending you messages from characters in the game even when you weren’t actively playing. That seems like it could be both creepy and rather annoying all at the same time.

Of course, we know that the game didn’t get very far into even pre-development, as Junji Ito revealed earlier in the year. So whether or not this feature would have even made it into the game is anyone’s guess, but it’s interesting to think about all the same.
