A lost soul searching for anwers.
A desperate man screaming for help.
A haunted town full of secrets.
Welcome to Silent Hill.

Have fun playing, "Silent Hill: Room 304", a point & click horror game based on the popular game series by Konami Digital Entertainment.

NOTE: Remember, you can go back and talk to ADRIAN at any point in the game. If you're stuck or have questions, he might have the answers. Or just read the walkthrough here: http://www.SilentHillRoom304.blogspot.com

BUG (SPOILERS):

There seems to be a bug at the cabin part.
When you've heard the tape and go back to the attic, it restarts the scene and you have to hear the tape again. So don't do that. Thanks!

Good

This game ended up being much better then what it looked like at first.
The "Dead End" sign in front of the cemetery is a nice touch. So is the voice acting and dialogue scene. I liked the surprising storyline, I really wasn't expecting that gameover all of a sudden. And certainly not the real ending either.
There are somethings that could be fixed, though. The key is sort of hard to see..... And it should be possible to skip the dialogue so we don't have to hear the same thing several times when asking questions.

Cool.

I liked this. I am a huge fan of the Silent Hill series (I've even enjoyed less notable entries such as the movie and some parts of Homecoming.) and was somewhat skeptical going into this, but I enjoyed it overall.

Silent Hill has always been a great duality of body horror with psychological horror; often with a nice bit of cosmic justice to tie the two together. I can tell that the body horror is quite absent here but ultimately that is not a detriment, in some ways I think it is one of the things that impressed me most about this game. Good body horror is hard to pull off, but it is also very easy to mass-produce crappy body horror which is much the folly of many horror games including the American developed Silent Hill games (Well, except Shattered Memories) and I'm glad that for once someone realized that the true talent and the true heart and soul of a great Silent Hill experience is the psychological horror and the boon of "Cosmic Justice."

It makes me happy that faced with having to (or simply deciding to) drop one of those two aspects, you kept the more important and much smarter aspect. The biggest negative I feel this had on the game is that while they did work, jump scares don't really fit into Silent Hill for me and the lack of a psychological connection did make them feel distanced. Regardless the actual atmosphere was perfect and the story was relatively strong, and as mentioned above was complimented by the presence of a true form of cosmic justice; something sorely lacking in horror, especially American.

The only other real complaints I have were with Adrian's voice; which occasionally felt off; and there was one puzzle that irked me; and that was finding the safe code. I would've accepted looking at my phone to figure out that puzzle, but when I have to Google a cipher it really sends a fracture down the experience. A good point n' click has all its puzzles in a place where they can be solved without having to pause and consult anything that isn't already within reach of the player, I.E. a pen and paper for notes and everyday objects and I certainly didn't memorize that cipher; even if it was the basic one; due to my crappy memory of the earliest grades.

Despite my minor complaints, I liked it. I also liked the use of live action images, which is a clever concept and reminded me of a ghost town in my own state I like to call our little slice of Silent Hill; fog and all. ;)

I'd love to see you do more in this vein, be it another Silent Hill tribute or a unique project.

Hardest Yet!

That was interesting and the hardest point and click yet. Scariest part was the School Bathroom for me. Enjoyed it, took me awhile to beat it, at the same time too quick. Twisted Ending!
