Hate to be the bearer of bad news but his wording here is actually very misleading in an unfortunate way.

He clarifies here
https://twitter.com/mrsambarlow/status/ ... 7648582664
and here
https://twitter.com/mrsambarlow/status/ ... 6641305602
that he isn't actually pitching a Silent Hill game to Konami.

I think the phrase he should have used was "spiritual successor", not "follow-up", because now everywhere is reporting that he's pitching an actual sequel to Shattered Memories to Konami and getting excited.

Honestly, I'd love it. Shattered Memories has a great narrative and it uses the gameplay to tell its story very well. If they can make a better, scarier gameplay, I would love it. Maybe learn from Alien: Isolation and even indie games like Cry of Fear, that you can balance combat with horror and still be very effective.

Given that Her Story and Telling Lies are what they are, I wouldn't expect any future Sam Barlow games to lean heavier on combat than Shattered Memories did. And personally, I think that's fine. I'm always down for video games to try different things than what's come before.

I agree with Nanaya. To me, Sam Barlow is what David Cage aspires to actually be but doesn't quite get to.

Any non-combat game is fine with me. There's enough fighting in the world. . . .
