Basically I like horror and I’m interested in the horror genre. I began participating in the Silent Hill series as a sound designer originally, but I was also sharing my opinions on the project, about the game structure and creation, and this process brought me the opportunity to be a producer for the saga. Even as a sound designer, you have to know and understand everything about game production including the meaning and message of the game because every part of it requires sound. Regarding seeing and understanding the entire project, the roles of a producer and sound designer are quite similar. However, producer is a tough position because he/she also needs to manage people in a team, and that requires a different set of skills and capabilities than the ones needed for a sound designer…. The feeling of fear is strongly influenced by the culture, the same for comedies and humour. Sometimes it scares Japanese people but not foreigners, and vice versa. From this point of view, it seems Silent Hill differs itself from other popular horror games. And I feel this is really a unique genre in horror. Even though it was not meant to be popularized horror, it came to become popular because of its strong sense of uniqueness.

Revisit Silent Hill In A Terrifying New Tale ‘Anne’s Story’ Reveals The Past!
San Diego, CA (July 01, 2014) – The nightmare-inducing series based on the hit video game series Silent Hill by Konami Digital Entertainment (“Konami”) returns to IDW this summer with a brand new chapter, Silent Hill Downpour: Anne’s Story. Featuring the dark origins of Downpour’s enigmatic antagonist, this new comic book series will delve deeper into the history of prison guard Anne Marie Cunningham… as well as further explore the fog-shrouded haunted town that is caught between realities.
Introduced in Silent Hill Downpour, officer Anne Cunningham set out on a bloody quest for revenge. The mystery surrounding her journey to Silent Hill, and the terrors she faced upon her arrival will finally be revealed, giving readers an entirely new perspective on the acclaimed video game.
Having written both previous Silent Hill series at IDW, Sinner’s Reward and Past Life, as well as co-written the video game, Silent Hill Downpour, Tom Waltz returns to the foggy town that bleeds horror.
“This will be my fourth foray as a writer into the dark side streets and alleyways of everyone’s favorite haunted vacation town and I couldn’t be more excited,” said Waltz. “More so because we finally get to share Anne Marie Cunningham’s canonical backstory, a mystery only hinted at until now. In our new story we can finally present all her grim and dirty secrets to Silent Hill fans, old and new alike.”
Diving head first into Silent Hill is Australian artist Tristan Jones (Ghostbusters, Hoax Hunters), who is handling covers and interior art.
Debuting this August, Silent Hill Downpour: Anne’s Story opens up a whole new experience for fans and players, and stands tall as an horrifying tale all it’s own! Catch up on the previous Silent Hill series’ anytime on read.idwpublishing.com.
