    Thumbs up Konami shut down Fan-Made remake of PT Silent Hills



    Konami continues to cement their place as the embarrassing drunk Uncle of the video game industry.

    Better than Nintendo, though. Nintendo shuts fan made stuff down, and threatens lawsuits. These guys shut him down, then gave him merch and an internship.

    The news article makes it sound like Konami wanted to keep it up if they could, but they couldn't. In that sense, this doesn't sound that bad. And on top of that...Yeah, that was pretty cool. It's what Nintendo should be doing, I think.

    That awkward moment when Konami is more morally sound than Nintendo.

    well...you know....they just want to lock him in the Tokyo office's dungeon for a while to think about all the naughty things he's done.

    When I was a teenage programmer, I would have loved to be locked in my favorite game developer's dungeon programming for them. I used to dream about moving to Texas and working for Ion Storm back in the day. I guess I was more than a teenager at that time.

    I lived the home coding dream before I concentrated solely on the graphics side. Back then the team would send disks to each other with updates (as we were spread over the country).. As you can imagine it wasn't the fastest process. :P

    As for cancelling this. Shame. Why not just get behind it and license it?

    You never know. Maybe their plan is to take him in as an employee, make sure his code is good, then release it and make money off of it.

    Who said anything about coding? It's Konami after all.

    Maybe they forced him to program Pachinko machines, or even worse DLC for Metal Gear Survive.

    My cousin is married to a guy who is a programmer, and he worked for a company that made gambling machines.

    Already has been. On Media Molecule’s “Dreams” that pretty much let’s you create any game you want, a team has recreated P.T. Hell, a team will probably do a FF7 Remake before the game actually releases.
