Higurashi When They Cry and Other “When They Cry” nicknames.
Finally, there’s also an interactive series called Silent Hill: The Ascension on the way from Bad Robot, Behavior Interactive, and Genvid. Here’s what producer Jacob Navoce had to say about the project when it was announced:
Silent Hill: Ascension takes this sense of collective fear to an enormous scale. It’s a live, real-time interactive series where millions of fans will watch together as a bone-chilling story unfolds. You can change its outcome and even be part of the scenes. There is no reset button. The decisions you make mean life or death in the story. It’s your chance to shape the Silent Hill Code forever.
It’s currently unclear how Silent Hill: The Short Message will play out in this flurry of projects in development for the horror franchise. Stay tuned, though, we’ll keep you posted with any news.
