Silent Hill continues to inspire other games, such as this Hollowbody. It’s a tech-noir survival horror short story, set in the urban decay of a long-abandoned British town.
Hollowbody has the ability to present itself to pc and Steam Deck, an adventure retro who used Silent Hill for inspiration and which will reach computers in the future.
The game by Headware Games was developed without plans to launch on consoles, but just by watching a little of its trailer you can already see its influences on survival horror from 2000; like Resident Evil.
Hollowbody was presented at the Realms Deep 2023 event and below these lines you can see the first trailer; Will his memories be found?
Hollowbody is played with a cinematic mix of dynamic and fixed camera angles, combined with logical puzzles, resource management and limited combat focused on narrative and exploration.
“Play as Mica, an unlicensed loader who works for a notorious gang of black market freelancers.“, reads the official description of the game.
“It seems like a simple job, another running in place, slow and stealthy. Unnoticeable under the thunder that covered the sky. But something is not right. The delivery point is dead…“and that’s when it all started.
Konami’s ghost town is still very much alive
As they say from DSOGaming, it seems that Headware Games is not a group of people and only one developer. However, and even without any AAA, it is surprising how well the details are taken care of.
“An hour in the area and have a problem with the hover. Navigation goes in circles and altitude is obtained. Before you know it, blinding white fills the sky.
The dashboard goes dark and your hovercraft falls like a lead balloon, crashing onto the paved streets.” What will happen now?
Among the features they boast about is their gameplay, their cinematics, the multiple endings and the complete voice acting of their characters.
We may (or may not) see the game in a few months or earlier in 2024, but everything is shaping up in a beautiful way.
It was done Hollowbody for PC and new retro game inspired by Silent Hill and other 2000s horror classics…Who’s there?
