New title revealed from the creator of Silent Hill

With Akira Yakamoka on board for the soundtrack...

It's to be expected that some games will be revealed to the public for the first time at His Holiness' Orange Crunchy Snacks Event (known as The Game Awards). We were hyped for a new Silent Hill game, as rumours had been rife, truth be told, but instead a new IP was unveiled by the creator of the first title in the classic series (and later, the Siren series creator) Keiichiro Toyama. Its name, Slitterhead. He's joined by the great Akira Yamaoka, a composer whose name is interwoven with Silent Hill and most recently The Medium.

For the game itself, unfortunately we don't know enough details such as the platforms and release date. Of course, the chances of it not coming to our PCs are small, but we can remain optimistic until there is official confirmation. The reveal trailer, however, is sufficiently weird and twisted, "virtues" that the Japanese are known for in their horror games - although we're not sure if it will be a pure representative of the genre - and we wouldn't want it to be otherwise. Below is the trailer in question:

Panagiotis Mitrakis

Τέκνο των 80's, ξεκίνησε τη gaming πορεία του με coin-ops και το κλασικό Game Boy. Συνέχισε με διάφορες άλλες πλατφόρμες κατά τα 90's (ιδιαίτερη θέση στην καρδιά του κατέχει το SNES) και ήρθε σε επαφή με το PC gaming το 1998, με παιχνίδια σταθμούς όπως Half-Life, Baldur's Gate και System Shock 2. Δε λέει όχι σε (σχεδόν) κανένα είδος αλλά δείχνει μια προτίμηση σε RPG και survival horror και προσπαθεί να μυήσει κι άλλους στη θρησκεία των Silent Hill, των S.T.A.L.K.E.R. και των δημιουργιών της Looking Glass και της Obsidian.
