Anne

Remember when I’ve posted the first sketches of “Anne’s Story” comic? If you don’t, don’t worry. Here are some new sketches plus final art for the upcoming IDW comic “Silent Hill Downpour : Anne’s Story”. That’s it, the officer Anne Cunnigham will be the protagonist of this side story that will show the events paralel to Murphy’s nightmare in Silent Hill.

The story will be written by Tom Waltz, also know for writing other Silent Hill comics alongside Downpour itself. Art credits goes to Tristan “T-Rex” Jones.

Silent Hill Downpour Walkthrough


Silent HillDp

Hey guys,

I’ve just started a walkthrough of Silent Hill Downpour on my new youtube channel (don’t forget to give it a like and subscribe). Make sure you take a look and I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed recording it for you! Spoilers ahead!

“Why is Anne so sad and angry?”


 

“Every time I looked at him, you know what I saw? I saw a monster. I saw you.” – Anne Marie Cunningham

Why is Anne so sad and angry? And what exactly are the “sick things” she had to do?

These are some of the tweets Tom Waltz, Silent Hill Downpour and comic writer, posted recently on his tweeter, teasing something he’s working on and might give us some answers to what’s behind Anne Cunnigham, the well known police woman who’s looking for Murphy Pendleton.

 

 

Silent Hill Downpour coming to Japan


Silent Hill: Downpour finally arrives to Japan, with release set to November 8 and featuring Masahiro Ito’s cover.

Konami announced they will bring Silent Hill: Downpour in Japan on November 8. While the game was a multiplatform title in the West, Konami will only release Silent Hill: Downpour for PlayStation 3 in Japan.

Silent Hill: Downpour puts players in the shoes of Murphy Pendleton, a convict who wanders into Silent Hill when his prison bus crashes. Silent Hill: HD Edition was also a PS3-only title in Japan. Konami canned the Japanese release of Silent Hill Homecoming.

Gorgoth “Playing the Devil’s advocate” – Downpour analysis


Image

Gorgoth recently posted, on Silent Hill Community, some kind of review regarding what, on his opinion, didn’t work so well in Silent Hill Downpour. He makes reference to many aspects from the game including the creatures and otherworld designs and makes quite interesting comparisons between old games and other kind of sources, to illustrate his point of view. Really worths a visit!

The reason the original titles were as disturbing as they were, is because they left a lot to your imagination. They used a lot of abstraction and distortion to make you think of troubling, macabre subjects without explicitly showing them. Having to actually figure out these grotesque visions gave them a much deeper impact than they would have had if you were just shown explicit, graphically violent and gratuitous images.

In Downpour there is virtually nothing that instills doubt and uncertainty, nothing that makes you think more deeply of what you’re seeing. No half-living maybe-humans undulating in pain behind iron bars. No creatures whose impossible anatomy reveal neither intention or sentience. No letters and phone calls from deranged madmen with broken psyches….We’re just being subjected to plain old scary monsters, a lot of unquestionably dead prisoners, and whilst in the otherworld, not much at all.
