One talented Fallout 4 fan uses assets from the post-apocalyptic game to recreate the P.T. demo for the infamously cancelled horror title Silent Hills.
Despite Fallout 4‘s plethora of Pip-Boy holotape mini-games, the modder and YouTuber known as “ki da” decided Bethesda’s open world title could use at least one more, and remade the hallway from the cult-favorite P.T. — that is, Playable Teaser — as an homage to Hideo Kojima’s and Guillermo del Toro’s now-defunct horror reboot of the Konami-owned franchise Silent Hill. Fans of Fallout 4 and of P.T. can get a look at the creation in the video found below.
Interestingly enough, ki da admits to buying a PS4 too late to have actually played P.T. before developer and publisher Konami removed it from the PlayStation Store. Bearing that in mind, since it can’t be downloaded again without having been owned prior to the publisher and developer pulling it from the marketplace, the YouTuber figured a recreation was in order with the use of mods and Fallout 4‘s Workshop feature with the action-RPG’s crafting system.
As is to be expected, ki da’s remake of P.T. is a far cry from the original, but it’s still able to capture some of its creepy tone and atmosphere by utilizing the radio audio featuring a broadcaster recounting the news story of a man brutally murdering his wife and child. Plus, in a strange, yet entertaining twist, Lisa ends up making an appearance, but is decidedly less frightening since she’s wearing a suit of power armor.
Of course, should other Fallout 4 fans be inspired to try their hand at making their own version of P.T., it’ll soon be easier than ever to do so with Bethesda having recently announced official mod support and the Garden of Eden Creation Kit coming to PCs in April, and with current generation consoles getting the feature next. However, PlayStation 4 players will have to wait the longest, as it will be the last platform to receive the mod tools.
Taking all of this into consideration, ki da’s attempt at reviving P.T. in Fallout 4 is a testament to gaming fans’ fascination of what could have been if instead of Silent Hills being cancelled with a “scorched earth approach”, it was allowed to be seen through by Kojima and del Toro. Not to mention, since the YouTuber used Fallout 4‘s in-game items to actually put the remake together, it’s safe to say that Bethesda’s retro-futuristic title can be re-purposed to mimic almost any game fans can imagine.
What do you think of ki da’s recreation of P.T. in Fallout 4? Does the YouTuber’s re-imagination do the original justice, or would it have worked better for you if the power-armor wearing Lisa was a Feral Ghoul instead? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
