Just in time for Halloween, a fan has recreated the infamous P.T. demo exactly as it first appeared on the PlayStation 4.
At this time of year, the Internet is groaning under the weight of scariest video game lists, but toping them all should be Silent Hills… the only problem being that it was never made and only got as far as its demo.
Called P.T. (playable teaser), the demo was released for the PlayStation 4 in the summer of 2014 and even on its own is one of the scariest video game experiences ever made.
The problem is it’s no longer available, as once Hideo Kojima left Konami the company petulantly removed it from the PlayStation Store and pretended it never existed.
Since then there have been a number of indie tributes to the game and fan recreations, but this new one by Artur Łączkowski seems to be the most accurate so far.
He claims it’s a 1:1 recreation of the original, so if you missed out the first time and have a gaming PC now you can experience it all on the scariest day of the year.
You better get in there quick though, as Konami are almost certain to shut it down as soon as they hear about it.
Silent Hills was to have been made in conjunction with movie director Guillermo del Toro, with The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus as the protagonist – although the latter is only evident in P.T. right at the end, when it reveals the connection to Silent Hill.
As it happens, both star in the new Hideo Kojima game Death Stranding, due out next week, even though that game is not a horror title and has no gameplay connection with P.T.
