A new rumour has pointed to some of the ways that Silent Hills would have made players jump.
According to former IGN employee Alanah Pearce (below), the game would have asked users to sign an agreement allowing them to be sent emails or text messages from characters within Silent Hills even when they weren't playing the game.
Silent Hills was a project being worked on by Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear fame alongside film director Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead fame. It was cancelled following Kojima's departure from Japanese publisher Konami, but not before a playable teaser - PT - was released at Gamescom 2014.
Kojima, Reedus and del Toro reunited to work on the recently-released Death Stranding.
I heard that Silent Hills would require you to sign a waiver before playing because it would somehow interact with your real-world self, like by sending you emails or text messages as characters from the game even when you weren’t actively playing. https://t.co/aWezrmYA7v— Alanah Pearce (@Charalanahzard) November 19, 2019
