Unannounced game Silent Hill: The Short Message rated in Korea

A new rating from the Game Rating and Administration Committee of Korea has appeared for Silent Hill: The Short Message.

Spotted by Gematsu, the game is published by UNIANA, which publishes many of Konami’s games in South Korea. However, platforms were not specified in the rating. Silent Hill: The Short Message was included in a group of ratings that also contains the free-to-play game eFootball 2023, published by UNIANA.

UNIANA looks to be highly invested in the arcade gaming space, so there’s a chance that Silent Hill: The Short Message could be simply that and not a full-scale production of a new AAA Silent Hill game.

There have been many leaks of potential future Silent Hill games, but no official announcements yet. One such rumor is that The Medium developer Bloober Team is working on a Silent Hill game.

Another leak that occurred recently is of a Silent Hill 2 remake in lieu of something that looks like the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes. Additionally, there’s a leaked “playable concept” called Sakura, but it’s unknown whether this is a demo teaser like P.T. was.

Konami has largely been out of the console and PC gaming space for several years at this point. The company’s biggest franchises like Metal Gear and Castlevania have sat dormant. However, Konami has still been publishing smaller games every now and again, including the deductive game Crimesight and the sidescrolling hack and slash game Getsu Fuma Den: Undying Moon.

Most recently, Konami announced remasters of the first two Suikoden games at the Tokyo Game Show.

Why do we love horror games? Psychologists explain our morbid curiosity
Leon facing El Gigante in Resident Evil 4 Remake.

True horror is something no human wants to experience. Few would actively want to throw themselves in a powerless position against some life-threatening situation or fearsome creature. Isn’t it much easier to watch these things through the TV screen with scary movies or auditory creepypastas? It's through that outside curiosity that humanity has created so many ways to witness nightmares without having to really put ourselves through actual hell. And one of those ways is through video games, one of the most interactive and immersive ways to take terror trips in a much safer way.

Silent Hill Ascension: Release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
A big shadowy monster.

It's been more than 10 years since the last Silent Hill title, but Konami has finally broken its silence. Thanks to the Silent Hill Transmission event, this long-dormant horror franchise was given new life in the form of a remake, three new games, and even a film. Each of these projects are quite different, and since so little is known about all of them (aside from perhaps the Silent Hill 2 remake), confusion among fans is understandable.

Silent Hill Ascension is by far the most experimental game the franchise will have seen. Based on the trailer and a few additional details that were laid out, it is clear that every one of the upcoming games will be taking the series in their own direction. However, Silent Hill Ascension still has people scratching their heads -- and not in a good way. While we can't clear up everything right now, here's everything we do know about Silent Hill Ascension.

I used to be too scared to play horror games. Then I saw the light

Whenever horror games come to mind, I'm always thrown back to my first time watching the original Resident Evil remake via a YouTube playthrough. As a kid, I was too scared to even touch a horror game, so I settled for watching someone else play on the TV using the old Wii Opera internet browser channel. I remember seeing all the goofy cutscenes, laughing at Wesker's stale deliveries ("Jill, no!"), and thinking the game wasn't all that scary. "Maybe I can actually play this," I started thinking.
