It’s hard to believe that little under a week has passed since we saw the Konami stream with several announcements in one. One of the games presented was Silent Hill Townfall, which didn’t reveal much except a short message. However, it looks like fans took a peek behind the scenes and discovered a mysterious secret.
The Silent Hill Townfall trailer has a portable television/radio with garbled images and someone speaking over it. You can catch quick glimpses of visuals on the screen, but it’s challenging to work out what they are. That didn’t stop MilkmanEX from revealing a secret message on Reddit that he discovered.
By extracting the audio to MP3 and analyzing the spectrogram, you can see the secret words. It says, “Whatever heart this town had has now stopped.” It’s quite ominous, and it makes me wonder what it has to do with the storyline. Perhaps it’s as simple as the developer being saddened that the heart and soul of Silent Hill have been dead for so many years.
In my last article about the Silent Hill transmission, I alluded to the possibility that we’re heading back to when the town first fell to the burning hells caused by Alessa while they tortured her. It seems like someone in the Reddit post’s comments agrees. If you listen carefully at 33 seconds into the trailer, it sounds like “Is that really Alessa?”
It could possibly be another version of Silent Hill: Origins, but with a new protagonist, characters, creatures, and plot. If it does end up being so, remember that you heard it hear first. Also, I want to point out that one of the hallways looks like the same passage from the P.T. demo.
Until we get more confirmation or leaks, I’ll continue working on my Silent Hill horror novels so you can also enjoy the brand in book form.
