Silent Hill F Will Be Written by When They Cry Writer

Konami has released a new Silent Hill game on the horizon during its Silent Hill transmission livestream: Silent Hill F. Ryukishi07, the creator of the When They Cry sound novel series of games, will be the writer. Taiwan-based studio Neobards Entertainment will develop the game, with Motoi Okamoto as the producer, and “kera” as the creature and character designer.

The trailer does not contain any gameplay footage, which implies that the game is still in the early development stage. However, it does give a good idea as to the general atmosphere that the game will have. It features a much more Japanese-inspired setting than the American aesthetic of the Silent Hill series. For example, a Japanese doll is prominent in the trailer, and the setting appears to be a rural shopping district in the 1960s. Plants and flowers are also key symbols for the game.

You can watch the trailer for Silent Hill F below. As a warning, there is some footage that those with trypophobia may find upsetting at around 1:12.

As mentioned above, Ryukishi07 is the author and artist of When They Cry, which includes Higurashi: When They Cry and Umineko: When They Cry. Both series lean heavily into the psychological horror genre, with some elements of gore. Neobards Entertainment previously worked on Resident Evil: Resistance, and Motoi Okamoto was the director of Wii Play.

Silent Hill F is in development, with more information to come out soon. Other games Konami announced during the Silent Hill transmission include Silent Hill: Townfall and a remake of Silent Hill 2.
