Developer WayForward has taken the Silent Hill series in a new direction. Instead of developing a third-person puzzle game that replicates the previous games released on Sony’s console systems, they have created a isometric action-RPG that retains the puzzle elements that we’re all familiar with.
The game immediately begins with a cinema setting the tone for the entire story. After answering the doorbell of your apartment, you are delivered a package from Silent Hill by an eccentric-looking individual dressed as a mailman. Before leaving, the strange mailman, despite being a stranger, wishes you a ,’Happy Birthday’.
