Silent Hill Dev Says Horror and VR Go Together

We love to see it!

VR and horror have “great chemistry,” according to Keiichiro Toyama, the developer of well-known horror titles such as Silent Hill.

In a recent Eurogamer article about the developer’s new studio, Bokeh Game Studio, Toyama made the comment during an interview. Looking at other aspects of the industry, the article mentions Toyama’s enthusiasm for the future of virtual reality, which he believes is ideal for horror games.

Toyama spent nearly two decades at Sony, where he developed another horror series, Siren, as well as the Gravity Rush games, in addition to co-creating Silent Hill with Konami. However, the developer departed Sony’s Japanese Studio (which has since been reformed into Team Asobi) at the end of last year to start Bokeh with Kazunobu Sato and Junya Okura. The team is now working on a new horror film.

Unfortunately, there’s no word on whether Toyama’s next game, which began development earlier this year, will support virtual reality.

Toyama is absolutely correct that VR and horror have chemistry; the sensation of isolation you get with a VR headset really helps to accentuate the horrors, and some of our greatest VR experiences to date, such as Resident Evil 7, are horror games.

Could you imagine a Silent Hill style game in VR? We sure can!
