silent hill ascension: how is konami's horror franchise project

One month ago we learned the history of Silent Hill Ascension, video game developed by Genvid Entertainment. This game from Konami’s ‘survival horror’ franchise is described by its developers as “an interactive experience in which an entire community participates and in which decisions made together will be canonical.” Now, thanks to a behind the scenes shared by the Esports Extrasportal, we know new details.

Previously, Jacon Navok —CEO of Genvid Entertainment— commented on Twitter, that players who log in once a day will be able to “see all available decisions for the first 24 hours.” While the “super important” decisions will also show up well in advance. It should be noted that the decisions will be made mainly by viewers and players in real time through ‘Quick Time Events’ (QTE). Additionally, Navok added that those who cannot connect every day will also be able to influence the canon and outcome of the story. This thanks to some community puzzles, which can be experienced at a more leisurely pace. In addition, all previous broadcasts will be archived. Thanks to this you will be able to keep up to date with the history of Silent Hill Ascension if you cannot attend the premiere time.

Silent Hill Ascension will have a «What if?
