The eight installment to the Silent Hill series, Downpour was developed by Vatra Games. Despite being new to the franchise, the developer retained the same visual style as previous Silent Hill Games while giving it a somewhat different feel. Their approach on this survival horror game proved interesting; doing some things right but also leaving a few that needed improvement."
