PT Has Been Remade in Unreal Engine 4
It’s available to download for free
While some gamers worked themselves in a frenzy thinking that Konami had disabled players’ ability to play PT via a patch last week (the rumor ended up being false), they now have a new way to experience the playable teaser for Hideo Kojima’s scrapped collaboration with Guillermo del Toro. Indie developer Artur Łączkowski has released a remake of the demo for free on his itch.io page. It’s a shockingly faithful recreation of the 2014 demo all done in Unreal Engine 4.
From the crying baby and whatever is in the sink to the shocking figure standing upstairs, Łączkowski has faithfully recreated all of the elements that made PT such a creepy game upon release. While we won't ever get Hideo Kojima's take on the Silent Hill series, players will be able to enjoy his teaser forever thanks to recreations like these.
For those that are unaware of the original teaser, PT revolves around walking through a mysterious hallway that changes slightly depending on the player’s interactions. It features a radio report on a familicide that sets an eerie tone and brings a new meaning towards the house that players investigate. It was meant to be a teaser for Silent Hills, although that game has been canceled by Konami.
Playable Teaser can be downloaded for free on Artur Łączkowski’s itch.io page.
