Konami’s batshit mental survival horror series is set to return with Silent Hill 8 (working title). The game starts in a prison transport vehicle that crashes leaving the game’s protagonist, Murphy Pendleton (LOL), thumbing for a lift. A lift in a car straight from…. THE TWILIGHT ZONE. Or Silent Hill or whatever.
According to Konami, Murphy (it’s you!) will battle terrifying monsters while solving brain-bending puzzles. I’m sure actual prison is scarier than Silent Hill. At least in Silent Hill you won’t have to toss the salad for a headless zombie thing that prefers syrup.
The game promises an ‘all new thought provoking storyline’ (read: more Japanese mentalist bollocks that makes no sense whatsoever). Anyway, 2011. Not that you actually care.
