This "game" is spooky as hell! (pun intended) Even when using the walkthrough. Can't seem to unlock the last puzzle. Doesn't help that a ghost follows your ass and kills you if you wait too long.After all this, I wanna say I'm interested in Silent Hills, but if it's that scary, I may just have to watch others play it lol. What say you, SW?

Spoiler in the title, but it's all over the internet at this point

#3 Posted by jg4xchamp (47869 posts) -

Get a headset, scream into the mic, the game needs to think you're scared.

And fuck yes I'm excited. Kojima's bat shit crazy ideas and Del Torro's enemy design and imagery and shit. All we need is someone other than those 2 to do the writing (though Pan's Labyrinth is awesome).

#4 Posted by Gue1 (9765 posts) -

if the game's going to be in first person then count me out. The demo is not even Silent Hill it's more like a Drag Me to Hell kind of thing.

I never say no to an awesome horror game.

#6 Posted by turtlethetaffer (16716 posts) -

No I didn't. A friend and I were playing through it together and just like everyone else we got to the last puzzle and got stuck.

#7 Posted by tacoma1972 (154 posts) -

Im 41. I finished the demo but I dont think I could last through a whole game of that. To much for my ticker.

#8 Posted by Pray_to_me (2837 posts) -

Yes. But I might need to wear diapers when I'm playing it.

#9 Posted by scottpsfan14 (4719 posts) -

Is this demo like a beta? Will it run out or can you keep it until you get the game?

#10 Posted by blangenakker (2291 posts) -

Don't have a PS4 but i was interested when I saw that Kojima and guillermo del toro were part of it

#11 Posted by silversix_ (14270 posts) -

it's just a teaser that unlocks the trailer to a new silent hill game. it plays like a demo.

GRAPHICS ARE INSANE!!!

And Kojima said the team held back to make it seem like an indie.

I finally did it!!

#15 Posted by bobbetybob (19250 posts) -

I got to the final part, was really good but I wouldn't want a full game with puzzles that obtuse (though I guess they made them more confusing the teaser so it probably won't be as bad in the actual game). Definitely very interested in Silent Hills.

Hell yah!

#17 Posted by yokofox33 (29522 posts) -

Too scared to play it. I'll try to play it in the morning or middle of the day to reduce the tears and anxiety.

Surprised he didn't say that they downgraded to Xbone level instead.

I don't like the first person approach, but I'm trying to be cautiously interested.

#21 Edited by Gamerno6666 (1039 posts) -

Yes I am. I need something more scary than those dang creepypasta's around the internetz.

#22 Edited by PAL360 (26832 posts) -

Yes, but i was stucked on the part that SPOILERS: you need to look through a hole to the bathroom, so i looked for the solution on internet. I'm definitely gettong it. It's the most terrifying game i played since RE trilogy and Silent Hill 1 and 2.

#24 Posted by Mr_Huggles_dog (995 posts) -

No....I get scared at the littlest things....and that demo creeped me the fuck out.

As much as I want to play scary games....I cannot. If I do...I won't get any sleep....I'll just lie in my bed with the covers over my head listening for every little creek in the walls like a dam child.

It sucks.

#25 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (4612 posts) -

I haven't finished it yet, but I love it. I haven't been this excited for a game reveal since MGS5.

#26 Posted by Ballroompirate (22771 posts) -

Loved it and yes I finished it, hopefully it wont be in first person though for the actual game.

#27 Posted by SolidGame_basic (17366 posts) -

why do you say that?

#28 Posted by Zelda187 (757 posts) -

Your goddamn right I'm interested

Just judging from the demo, I can honestly say that this is the scariest game I've ever played.

With Resident Evil having basically turned into an action shooter and Silent Hill all but disappearing, the survival horror genre has almost gone extinct. I really didn't find Outlast all that appealing at all.

Not a fan of first person horror games, in fact not really a fan of FP games that use the "head on a stick" routine, come on it's 2014 and people are still lazy to animate feet.

The game itself will be great but PT was nothing like a silent hill game . In fact it felt like demo for indie horror game with great visuals . It was boring as hell . In the beginning it really blows your mind , but soon becomes boring after 10-15 minutes . Stuff becomes repetitive .

sounds like someone had a hard time with the demo

#32 Posted by Kaze_no_Mirai (11226 posts) -

Definitely interested but I wouldn't really say its scary at all. The demo was fantastic and as others have said I hope the final product isn't in first person.

You call that hard .? Lol . BTW , didn't you ask for people opinions .? If you can't handle it , then don;t make threads .

You are just running in circles and in the end . SPOILERS : you just have to look through hole in the wall . Wow so hard .

#34 Edited by enzyme36 (1512 posts) -

Still cant figure it out .... I got ghosted

Will have to try again tonight.... real creepy with head phones on.

EDIT: I literally paused everytime I got to the end of the first hall, scared to turn the corner to see what was down the next hall.... well done

nah man, you don't have to like it. you just sound like someone who got frustrated and took it on the game lol

I beat it last night and for the most part, I was pleasantly surprised. Truth be told, the one thing I did not like was how random the final puzzle was; I have completed it three different times and every time the final puzzle was different than the last. To me there's no challenge in that and I didn't find it fun at all.

Other than that? I liked it a bit. I'm definitely interested in the final product now.

EDIT: Also, it's worth noting that this isn't a "demo" for the new Silent Hill game; it's a teaser. Hence the name "P.T." which actually stands for "Playable Teaser"

#37 Posted by intotheminx (598 posts) -

I'm mad jelly that I can't play it, but I watched a stream and I still got the willies just from watching another person play lol. Hopefully Silent Hills will come to PC.

Where can I play this demo?

#40 Posted by scottpsfan14 (4719 posts) -

Fuck knows if I beat it. It just loops round a million times. I don't know if that's 'beating' it tho. Got a mad jump scare tho.

#41 Posted by SolidGame_basic (17366 posts) -

it's for ps4 only under demos

Yes, I beat PT...but I am a long time Konami fan, long time Silent Hill fan (especially SH1-3 by Team Silent), a LONG, LONG TIME Hideo Kojima Fan, and also I happen to be a huge movie aficionado. Why is that significant? It turns out that I've also been a longtime Guillermo del Toro (film director) fan since 1993's Cronos. He's has a nice body of work that many of you might be familiar with, including Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, Hellboy 2, Blade II, Mimic, The Devil's Backbone, and recently with Pacific Rim. Del Toro is involved with PT as well? SWEET!

PT is a match made in heaven as far as I'm concerned and I enjoyed playing it AT NIGHT, With the LIGHTS OFF, in SURROUND SOUND. WOW!

Finally, I absolutely love that the demo was ready to go when the project was unveiled. It was released on PSN as "PT", hidden away on PSN, then announced and on the PS4 PSN store...beautiful execution. Usually we gamers see something on stage and then we wait months to play the demo or beta of a game later. This PT reveal was just a wonderful way to find out about Silent Hills. PT of course, is the code name for Playable Teaser which was for Silent Hills.

I'm not sure why the demo was a PS4 exclusive, but I dug PT none-the-less.

Kojima I'm sure orchestrated this reveal. It's just like him to keep this under-wraps and proceed to mind-f**** the audience. Fans of his know he loves breaking the fourth wall in his games and this was one hell of a surprise. To allow Sony to reveal PT at Gamescom as some sort of new horror game called PT by some unknown studio and leave it to the fans to figure out it's really Silent Hills. Even upon boot up, there are no indications on what this game is. YOU HAVE NO IDEA (unless the internet spoiled it). What a wonderful HIDDEN surprise, especially for longtime SH fans. The way the PT demo went live on PSN almost immediately...almost orgasmic way to reveal a product. The timing was also wonderful, these days we hear about indie games constantly, it was easy to file PT as just another new indie game sliding out of the woodwork, haha.

Sure, it's probably easier to just announce blandly, "Yeah, a NEW SH game is coming gaiz!" That's pretty standard. But that's not what we fans got this time and I haven't seen anyone really talk about how wonderful a reveal this was. I hope we see things like this in the future (surprise game being revealed, turns out the surprise game is actually a different more popular game altogether, demo going live immediately, etc.)

In terms of video game history reveals, this PT reveal is definitely going to be one of the ABSOLUTE BEST REVEALS of a game I've seen in a long, long, long time. Even if I wasn't a SH fan, I would admire how well this surprise and demo execution worked out and I wouldn't help but feel a little jealous games I did like weren't revealed in such an awesome manner.

This part is anecdotal as well, but considering I'm the only one in games forums I've seen rant about how well this PT reveal went down, I don't think many people cared so we probably won't see something like this again, but it's a shame if you ask me. I'm a longtime gamer and gaming historian and boy, what a treat it was to find out that PT after completion was actually a Silent Hills product all this time.

Magnifique Konami!

BRAVO!

How?

you have to stay in the hallway, wait till the clock hits midnight, and then - this is the kicker - you have to hear the baby giggle three times. the first time it usually happens right after the clock chimes and you've walked 10 steps. after that, most people don't exactly what they did to trigger the second giggle; but here are some tips http://www.ign.com/wikis/silent-hills/P.T._Demo_Walkthrough after third giggle you need to look at the phone

Neat demo but yes, it got lame since it seemed completely random at the end. Hope the real game is more traditional.

#49 Edited by SolidGame_basic (17366 posts) -

@Aljosa23: now that is funny!

@SolidTy: nice, I wish they do another remaster of the silent hill series for next gen consoles (I heard the last one had issues). I never had the guts to tackle on silent hill :( especially 2. I remember when 2 came out and I just couldn't do it! and then I tried again and had the same feeling lol. but maybe I can do it!
