Unreal PT Recreation Brings Back The Horror, Can Be Played Both In VR And PC


Years after Konami took PT off of the Playstation Store and cancelled Silent Hills, the dream team Silent Hill game that was being worked on by Hideo Kojima, Guillermo Del Toro, and Junji Ito, one enterprising fan has taken the liberty of doing an entire Unreal PT recreation for the fans.

PT, which stands for Playable Teaser, was first announced at Gamescom 2014 as part of a collaborative effort between Kojima and Del Toro. Filled with a wide variety of riddles and puzzles that had to be solved in order to end the game, players had to figure them out while dealing with the many horrific and frightening images in a single, simple hallway of a house.

Beating the game gave players a teaser trailer for a new Silent Hill game starring Norman Reedus, but Kojima’s controversial departure from Konami killed Silent Hills and likely the rest of the Silent Hill series for the foreseeable future. The game was also removed from the Playstation Store, making Playstation 4 consoles who still had it a valuable commodity.

The Unreal PT recreation was created using the Unreal 4 engine, which allowed the programmer, RadiusGordello, to be able to recreate the house exactly so that you could still play the game even if you’d deleted or lost the demo somehow. And, considering it’s now compatible with a VR headset, you can get horrified in first person, which might lead to more than a few heart attacks.

While the game is mainly an exact replica, the Unreal PT Recreation has had its ending altered slightly, in order to be able to more consistently beat the game. There are also a few issues with VR, mainly that room-scale isn’t supported (so if you move away from the center you’ll start clipping through things) and at least one case of motion sickness.

Either way, you can download it by following this link, so if you’ve either never gotten to experience PT before it was deleted, or you want to piss your pants again, go check it out!
