Let’s Play Silent Hill: The Short Message

The game was released on the same day as the Sony PlayStation showcase, and just for the PlayStation 5. So, to celebrate this momentous occasion and while we’re all huge fans of Silent Hill over at Croakitoad, I decided to play through this short game just to soak in the Silent Hill ambience in the year of 2024! This is not bad at all for a free to play game for PlayStation 5 owners, and I really enjoyed the story they were telling here. The forced chase scenes (specifically the one at the end where you have to find items to leave) I wasn’t much of a fan of, and reminded me too much of like Slenderman of game’s past. However, the rest of the game really felt like Silent Hill from the art, ambience, music and environment and the hot button real life social issues this game tackles really hits hard at home in current day 2024. I could really feel for all of the characters involved in this story as it becomes more about those real life human issues and the realm of Silent Hill is just there to introduce us to that, sort of like Pinhead and the Cenobites from Hellraiser.
