I am in no way endorsing the illegal download of the (supposedly) leaked Silent Hill: Origins demo. But for those who've done so anyway:

What do you guys think of the savepoint? For those who don't know what it looks like, it's a big red triangle about the size of Travis's shoulders to the tip of his head. In the middle is an eye, and near the corners (but not quite close) are three notably small circles. It seems to be a very early version of the Halo of the Sun, but without the circle or the runes, and with a triangle.

...now that I type it, it's very unlike the Halo of the Sun. :P

Why does everyone call a red symbol a "very early version of the Halo of the Sun"? If they look different, they're different sigils--especially when they don't look the same, nor are shaped the same.

Sounds cool. i would love to see a picture of it. But I'm assuming it'll probably be easier to post picts. of Origin when it comes out, though.

I revoked my statement at the last line of my original post, and felt positively silly. :D

Yeah. It'd probably not be a good idea to post it. But it does have the general idea of the Three Circles, representing life, death, and rebirth, or the stages of life, or something like that.

I've seen it, looks a bit meh to me, too big and too much like SH2/3. But really it's a save point, who cares?

I really dont think climax put much thought into the save point like team silent did. but then again it could be something signifacant such as a road block because travis is a trucker. but I really have no idea

It really did remind me of a traffic cone, or something they'd put on an aisle at Walmart when the floor is wet.

There might be more thought put into it that we've yet to uncover...

Also the size might be a forethought to making sure we can find it when playing on PSP.

It could be, that perhaps the save point symbol.. is simple something the creators of the game. Put in there to fill space, until they're able to put in the final symbol for the save point. In past silent hill games, you had anything from just a square red paper.. to a notebook.. to just a symbol painted on a wall.. from the looks of the symbol.. it's merely a space filler from the looks of things.. but I dont know for sure yet.. We'll just have to wait til the game comes out to make the final conclusion.

I don't know if anyone realized this, but in the demo, at the end when travis kills the lying figure, there appears something called "future place" or "plaque" (something by those words) and it's exactly the same as the save point with the exception that it's three-dimensional.

Weird... when I first saw it I was convinced it was just a "space filler" and that before the game was released it would be replaced with a more elaborate, pre-rendered design... but I guess it isn't too dissimilar from the points in SH2 (although not as elaborate as the points in SH3) I suppose that, so long as the point has a direct connection to the story (i.e. -- The Halo), I won't mind at all (even if it is explained half-ass)... I just don't want a red square randomly placed in inconvient spots... :)

I havent seen it. Maybe I would like something more simple [spoiler]like the notebook that Harry used on SH1[/spoiler] (considering this is a prequel).
