Silent Hill Screenshot Allegedly Leaked, Then Taken For Copyright Claim

Four alleged Silent Hill images leaked to Twit­ter from a user by the name of Aes­thet­ic Gamer (also known as Dusk Golem), which has since been tak­en down due to a DMCA request. Rumors about anoth­er Silent Hill game has been swirling around for years, and these images brought doubt that they were even real to begin with. How­ev­er, the copy­right claims do sug­gest that the images leaked could be the real deal.

In the orig­i­nal tweet shared by Aes­thet­ic Gamer, they wrote, “This is from a rel­a­tive­ly new source for me, but I have been giv­en more than enough proof to believe them. I also will men­tion the names ‘Ani­ta & Maya,’ ‘SMS Mes­sages,’ and this is not the only SH game in dev. The shots are a bit dat­ed, from 2020.”

The images are not vis­i­ble on Aes­thet­ic Gamer­s’s Twit­ter account any­more, but you can still go over to ResetEra forums to check them out. The first image shows a room packed with garbage, peel­ing wall­pa­per, and an old babies crib in the cor­ner. The sec­ond shows a woman who’s face has pieces miss­ing from it, with the words “minger” and “I hate myself” writ­ten into those spots. 

The third image shows a hall­way filled to the brim with sticky notes, coat­ed in a red light from floor to ceil­ing. Words like “Per­vert, dumb,” as well as pro­fan­i­ty, can be seen on the notes. A fourth pho­to shows what appears to be the con­cept art for the third image. 

Of course, not every­one is con­vinced the leak is true. For­mer Kon­a­mi employ­ee, Tomm Hulett, wrote on Twit­ter, “If a stu­dio has mul­ti­ple peo­ple send­ing mate­ri­als to a known leak­er, they are not pro­fes­sion­al enough to do the game jus­tice.” In a fol­low­ing tweet he added, , “To be clear I tweet­ed this par­tial­ly as proof these leaks are fake. I don’t believe them. I’ve already seen peo­ple claim­ing I am con­firm­ing them as true. I do not work for Kon­a­mi and have not in near­ly 10 years. I do not have special/secret knowl­edge about SH.”

Aes­thet­ic Gamer’s descrip­tion of what to expect from the game appears to include SMS mes­sages, which like­ly ref­er­ences an old rumor about a real-time inter­ac­tive components–where you get text mes­sages sent to you. On ResetEra, Aes­thet­ic Gamer also claimed that Sony is still involved in the project, and that Kon­a­mi was the one who filed the DMCA order.
