Silent Hill Creator Is Teasing Creepy Looking New Project

Keiichiro Toyama, the creator of Silent Hill and Gravity Rush has started teasing his next project which looks like it's going to be even more of the same grotesque, intriguing work he's known for. The as-yet-untitled game Toyama and the team are working on at the new Bokeh Game Studios looks like it leans heavily into the horror genre with the concept images that have been released.

Toyama, after working with Sony SIE for a good 20 years or so, left the goliath games company in 2020 to work on his own projects. He is now the creative director of Bokeh Game Studios so he can work on games in his "own style". And now on the Bokeh Game Studios YouTube channel, an interview with the creative director, and some hints of concept images the studio is working with, has been released.

Insects and humans seem to be spliced together with these images. Humans mangled to make way for insect-like appendages, or even in one image, tentacles. Bodies hang from hooks, guarded by a man with a praying mantis erupting from his back in another picture, and yeah it's as gross as it sounds - but in a fun horror way. The way I want to run away screaming from everything here but laugh while doing so.

Interestingly there is one image that doesn't look like a horror game at all, more like Mirror's Edge meets a gritty modern Samurai game. A protagonist stands with a katana on their back looking over some apartment buildings while a plane looks close to crashing overhead.

All the little pieces of art can be seen in the interview with Toyama where he talks about his inspirations, what he wants from the games he'll create at Bokeh Studios and his motivations. "I aspire to make IPs that fans can enjoy even ten, twenty years after they're released." Sounds like whatever Toyama has his eye on could be a fan favourite for decades to come.
