A fan from Germany has started a petition urging Konami to resurrect the Silent Hill reboot less than a week after the developer announced its cancellation.
Japanese video game designer Hideo Kojima and ace Hollywood producer Guillermo del Toro of Puss In Boots fame were previously attached to the project which was to have Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead as the protagonist.
The fan who kickstarted the campaign which has garnered 71,000 signatures and counting is a Yauheni Zinkevich from Germany.
The contents of the letter are given below:
Dear Hideo and Guillermo,
Hearing the cancellation of one of the most anticipated horror games is about the most heartbreaking thing horror fans had to swallow this year.
Since the first sight of the P.T Demo it was instant love, and it burned into the minds of everyone that this had to release at some point.
Although the reasons are not yet announced I am begging you along with countless others: Please continue the Development on Silent Hills, if the issue is money related, we would love to see a Crowdfunding campaign like Kickstarter to ensure you are getting all the financial help there is! We´d love to see it happen at some point and want to thank you for all the great games you have released so far!
Let’s hope against all hope that Konami takes heart from the campaign and resumes work on the popular franchise once again.
