I just wish someone could get a screenshot of the distance-to-Portland sign in SILENT HILL: DOWNPOUR. I remember seeing it, just never bothered to write it down, and I can't recall where specifically it is.

>Lake Seabago in Maine is pretty close to Portland, and it has quite a few beaches even though it's an in-land lake.<
Yeah that's a pretty massive lake at five miles across. For reference, Toluca Lake—at least according to the fan-made complete map—is roughly 15 miles across from the end of Nathan Ave. to Pleasant River.

If you listen to what the guy is saying, it sounds like the person he is talking to said he was there to be punished, but the interrogator believes he is lying about this and is actually in Silent Hill for another reason. I'm hoping this is the twist and that it may not be what it seems at first.
Yeh, I think the whole point of that line was to poke fun at the line of thinking that all western games are the same. i.e. A poor imitation of Silent Hill 2.

No Code are better than that.

My personal view is that it may relate to Silent Hill 1, but is not directly focused on Alessa. The person being interrogated could potentially be involved in the cult. Furthermore, as was mentioned on the discord by another user, the beach with waves could be symbolic of electromagnetic waves. To expand on that idea, I think the small portable tv screen might be Townfall's version of the radio, with information being viewable on the portable screen, helping you solve puzzles.

Now that SH2Rs release is close I've been thinking about what this is and F. Judging by No Codes past there is a good chance this is a narrative driven Puzzle game. I hope that they have more traditional SH gameplay, but I'll play Observer SH Edition if it means great characters and new juicy lore.

Depends how you define ‘close’, I feel this won’t be coming any earlier than 2025. The scope of the project increased as was mentioned on the No Code Twitter account, so that could push it back further too.

SH2R isn't until October. There is zero chance this is coming anytime before 2025.

Too many SH products too close together could limit interest and sales.

Dead as far as the mind goes
