Silent Hill Shattered Memories For Mac
2 days ago Silent Hill: Shattered Memories Writer Sam Barlow Says He’s Pitching a Sequel Brianna Reeves Friday, October 09, 2020 Before Her Story and Telling Lies. 2 days ago Sam Barlow, the man behind the award-winning titles Her Story and Telling Lies, also happened to be the writer for the 2009 Wii release, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. That entry in the franchise took a rather unique approach, as it removed combat altogether. The decision was a. 2 days ago Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is a game I can’t recommend enough. In many ways, it’s the perfect capstone to the series, bringing us back full circle to explore the original in a new light.
2 days ago Really liked Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. It captured the atmosphere of Silent Hill pretty well, and it had tremendous replay value. One of the best games released late in the Wii's life. 2 days ago Shattered Memories was a reimagining of the first Silent Hill, with a new framing around some familiar places, characters, and story points, the fighting replaced with fleeing, otherworldly rust turned to ice, and a Shyamalanian twist whammed on top. I prefer the original, but Shattered Memories certainly has fans.
Could there be a sequel to Silent Hill Shattered Memories in the future?
Update: Sam Barlow has clarified through DualShockers’ tweet that the pitch is not for Konami. He states that “The impetus comes from (a) people asking me for it & (b) the market has hit a point where these kinds of games actually make sense, looking at what Remedy did with Control & Kojima with Death Stranding, the emergence of the Triple-I game”

*Especially in South & Central America. Konami always told us that this was a big market for horror games and they were not wrong! I need to learn Brazilian Portuguese & Latin American Spanish

The original reporting continues below, and I’m incredibly excited to see what Barlow has up his sleeve.
Original Story: Silent Hill rumors have been floating around a fair bit this year, leaving fans of the series gagging for another installment from Konami. While it might not be solid yet, it does seem as if there are plans in the works as the creator of Silent Hill Shattered Memories has confirmed he’s pitching a follow-up.
Sam Barlow, the writer and designer behind Silent Hill Shattered Memories has revealed that he’s currently pitching a follow-up to that game after apparently having been asked the question in an interview. The fact he’s pitching it obviously means that he can’t share any information about it but can at least tease it.
NB: this is *not* @halfmermaid Project A███████ (also spooky and awesome) it’s the next next game. Forcing your entire network of friends and acquaintances to wishlist P█ is a (free!) downpayment on the SHSM successor, also known as Project Door Peek™

He also notes that what he’s pitching is not his Project A game that’s being developed by his studio, Half Mermaid Productions, but instead, it’s to be the game after that game. He pens the title he’s pitching as a successor, but it’s unclear if he’s pitching the idea to Konami, or whether he has plans to make something with his own studio.
Touching on the rumors surrounding Konami, back in January, the monster designer had teased a new project. Shortly after a reliable leaker revealed that Konami may be working on “at least” two new Silent Hill titles. A few months later, Konami confirmed that the series was still alive, but the rumors aren’t true. And then there was that Twitter blunder that happened in August which was apparently not any indication that a new game was on the way, but there was a new Twitter account that had surfaced.
Silent Hill is just one of Konami's franchises that needs to make a comeback. Don't get us started on Castlevania or Contra (because Rogue Corps doesn't really count). But if Sam Barlow has anything to say about it, a sequel to 2009's Silent Hill: Shattered Memories could get the green light.
According to Barlow, who wrote Shattered Memories and acted as the game's lead designer, he's in the process of pitching a sequel to the game. Any other details about the potential project are non-existent at this point.
Barlow spilled the beans on Twitter after being asked about Shattered Memories in a recent interview.

Another tweet from Barlow confirms that he is still working on Project A, which was enigmatically teased earlier this year on Her Story's fifth anniversary. Project A is currently in development, but it is not related to his work on the Shattered Memories sequel pitch.

There have been several Silent Hill rumors making the rounds in 2020 surrounding a reboot of some kind, including rumblings that two Silent Hill games are currently in the works. In March, tweets referring to Pyramid Head from designer Masahiro Ito stoked the flames, and in May, notable leaker Dusk Golem said that a reboot would be exclusive to the PS5.
It's still unknown if those rumors are true, or if Barlow's pitch for a Shattered Memories sequel is one of the two supposed projects. It's also unknown if the pitch is anything more than that or how far along the process currently is.
Silent Hill Shattered Memories For Mac Os
Ultimately, it's hard to tell with Konami. They did cancelP.T., after all, a game that was to be a new entry in the franchise from Metal Gear Solid designer Hideo Kojima.
Fans have certainly been begging for more Silent Hill since 2012, with various entries in the series making remake lists far and wide. Perhaps we'll soon learn if the rumors are true — and if Barlow's pitch turns into an actual project. Stay tuned for more.
