Months After Leaving Sony, Silent Hill Creator Shares Concept Art From New Horror Project
Shortly after creating and directing the first game in the beloved Silent Hill franchise, Keiichiro Toyama left Konami and began work at Sony. In his time there, Toyama created the Siren series and the Gravity Rush series. Toyama left Sony in December, announcing he was opening a brand new studio called Bokeh Game Studios and that the studio’s first project would be a horror title.
Details about the project are very scarce, but Toyama has stated that he plans to to return to his roots to create a scary game that tells a great story.
Recently, Bokeh Game Studios released a video to their YouTube channel that happened to contain some concept art from this still mysterious game.
The almost mechanical and insect-like designs are certainly unsettling, which is right in line with what we would expect from the visionary behind Silent Hill.
It’s all very early on in development so don’t expect many updates for awhile, but we wish Toyama and the rest of his team, made up of developers behind Gravity Rush, the Last Guardian, and many others, great luck in the independent game space.
"As we turn independent, we have to prepare everything ourselves. It is hard, there are responsibilities, but we have our freedom. This is the most important. I want to enjoy creating from now on."
