Silent Hill Fan Game Should be More Than Enough to Hold You Over

I know we have a few fans of Silent Hill and especially P.T. around here, including one of our own writers, but these poor souls have quite a wait until the horrific Silent Hills from Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro arrives. Hopefully, this fan game can help them cope with the slow passage of time.

Silent Hill: Alchemilla is an adventure style game that looks to recreate the atmosphere of Konami’s series using the one-and-only Source Engine. Seriously, the Source Engine was so ahead of its time that it still looks amazing to this day! How many years does it still have left in it? Quite a few apparently, if fans can use it to make a game that looks strikingly similar when compared to the real deal.

Developer White Noise has released a haunting trailer for its fan project, and it describes it as not a remake in any way but an original story taking place within Silent Hill and Silent Hill 2’s universe.

So we have an ADVENTURE type game in Silent Hill universe with NO MONSTERS and NO GUNSMELEE. We wanted to implement these features strong enough and we searched for people for the last days and sadly didnt find any who could help us to do this quite well. It is very sadly for us too. We dont apologize for this cause we did all what we can.

In our game you will not find inventory system or notes system and the reason the same – there are no people who could do that on Source engine (people start to hate it cause it outdated). So just sit tight, take pen and notebook and play as hardcore gamer, make notes yourself, draw your maps yourself. If you Silent Hill fan – you should deal with that.

You can download Silent Hill: Alchemilla now for free at ModDB, and it should be especially easy to set up considering the Source Engine’s files are available to anybody who has Steam.
