In case you are having hassle telling them aside, Silent Hill Townfall is the brand new Silent Hill recreation being developed by Tales Untold studio No Code and revealed by Annapurna Interactive. Not the Silent Hill 2 remake or the prequel set in Japan referred to as Silent Hill F. When Townfall was introduced throughout Konami’s Silent Hill transmission, inventive director Jon McKellan stated, “It is an actual honor for us to deliver a brand new title to this sequence that each respects the supply materials, but additionally does one thing a bit bit totally different with it.”
He concluded by saying, “So clearly the teaser trailer is just the start, we will not present you any extra, […] it is perhaps price watching that trailer once more, and see what you may need missed.” The web took that as a problem, and has already discovered some secrets and techniques buried inside it.
Most importantly, Redditor u/MilkManEX (opens in new tab) downloaded the trailer’s audio as an m4a file, had a have a look at its spectrograph in Audacity, and located textual content that reads: “WHATEVER HEART THIS TOWN HAD HAS NOW STOPPED (opens in new tab)“.
Pausing the flickering photographs that play throughout the pocket tv additionally revealed textual content that claims, “THY FLESH IS WEAK”, in addition to three dots, three dashes, and three dots: Morse code for S.O.S. That is not the one code followers have found. When developer No Code tweeted an image of a house (opens in new tab), and writer Annapurna Interactive tweeted a similar image (opens in new tab), it was apparent they weren’t equivalent footage. Which is why @yApth0 (opens in new tab) subtracted one from the opposite and located extra Morse code, which reads, “I DON’T KNOW HOW TO LEAVE”.
Spooky. Different issues rounded up by the Silent Hill subreddit could also be extra of a stretch, particularly once they appear to be referencing the sooner video games within the sequence. As an illustration, 33 seconds into the trailer when components of a map are displayed, it sounds form of like somebody saying “Is that actually Alessa? (opens in new tab)” in reference to the character from the primary recreation. Nevertheless it’s actual fuzzy audio, and possibly wishful considering.
As is the speculation (opens in new tab) that the determine seen 45 seconds in is Valtiel, first seen in Silent Hill 3. The concept that the opposite creature seen sideways round 49 seconds in might be a Mendacity Determine from Silent Hill 2 is a bit more convincing, provided that it shares the awkward, shuffling posture and bodybag-plastic sheen.
Given McKellan’s assertion that Townfall “respects the supply materials, but additionally does one thing a bit bit totally different with it” we in all probability should not count on too many direct callbacks to the fan-favorite authentic Silent Hill video games. The teaser’s narrator, interviewing somebody about why they’re in Silent Hill, at first accepts the reply they’re right here to be punished—which is why a lot of the major characters in Silent Hill 2 are drawn to a vacation spot unlikely to attain excessive on Tripadvisor—however then says there’s in all probability extra to it than that. Perhaps that is true of Townfall itself? Given how overused the iconography of Silent Hill 2 specifically grew to become in later video games, that seems like an excellent factor to me.
If somebody might piece collectively all of the map fragments and determine the place they’re from although, that may be ace.
