Hideo Kojima Marks PT’s 8th Anniversary

Hideo Kojima marked PT’s eighth anniversary with a quick tweet, posting a cover image of the secret Silent Hill game that was canceled in its prime. Hollywood director Guillermo del Toro also added a quicker and possibly saltier response to Kojima’s tweet. Del Toro’s tweet, consisting only of the letters “FK,” is likely intended to convey his disdain for Konami and his decisions at the time.

Originally directed by Kojima when he was still working at Konami, PT is a first-person horror game in which players have to navigate a haunted house. A short taste of spooky supernatural disturbances, cryptic puzzles, and running for your life whenever you encounter a malevolent ghost named Lisa, PT has finally been revealed as a playable sneak peek for a new game in the Silent Hill series, Silent Hills.

The original plan was for Kojima and del Toro to direct the Kojima Productions project, which also featured a lead played by The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus. Kojima wanted to create a unique atmosphere in which to scare people with PT, an idea that was enhanced by contributions from famed horror manga artist Junji Ito, and as fans discovered, Lisa’s model was cleverly tied directly behind the protagonist once they discovered the flashlight and explained how it could constantly surprise players.

Konami would choose to cancel development on Silent Hills, and in May 2015, the PT demo was removed from the PlayStation Store entirely. Unlike other games that are occasionally pulled from the PlayStation digital marketplace, PT’s removal was final as owners of the demo were unable to re-download it once it disappeared.

Those people who kept the demo on their PS4 became owners of a very valuable console. The game also cannot be transferred from PS4 to PS5 as it is not backward compatible with current generation PlayStation versions. Fan attempts to remake PTs in other games have also been regularly shut down by Konami.

In the years since it was published and removed, PT has appeared in other games. Death Stranding, Kojima’s first game after his departure from Konami, includes an Easter egg in the director’s cut, The Secret World spin-off The Park has a PT-inspired sequence, and the demo inspired horror games like Layers of Fear and Face.

As for Silent Hill, the franchise remains in a mysterious state at the moment. There are rumors that several different games are in development for the series, including a Silent Hill 2 remake helmed by The Medium’s developer team Bloober and it’s definitely not a rogue dog.
