From ANN:

"Before fans shed many a tear for the cancelled Silent Hills horror game that would have brought together Hideo Kojima, Guillermo del Toro, Junji Itō, and Norman Reedus, studio Climax Los Angeles pitched its own Silent Hill title in 2006. It too, never saw the light of day.

The game would have taken place in Arizona and starred protagonist Father Hector Santos. The priest would have utilized water, a major motif in the game, to perform "holy rites and rituals." The franchise's usual baddies like Pyramid Head and Demon Nurses were also planned to make a return.

Unfortunately for Climax, they never received a greenlight from Konami to continue the project. The game was reimagined as an original title called Broken Covenant but that too, was eventually shelved. Climax's British branch would instead release Silent Hill: Origins and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories."

The gameplay reminds me of Manhunt. Nice find, JD.

Fascinating. From the sound of the pitch it'd have same terrible misunderstanding of Silent Hill as a series everything else did back then circa Origins, but I like seeing what could have been.

Honestly it sounds better than Homecoming.

The concept of playing with a priest sounds awesome but having the "Usual baddies" like Pyramid Head and Demon Nurses sound lazy... I could be good but we saw how the awesome concept of playing with a soldier was wasted in Homecoming...

Hey now, if there's one criticism you can't lob at Climax, it's not using their premise for an SH game. They never pulled that card.

I bet once you see this, Origins starts looking pretty good.

Nothing can make Origins look good.
