Streamer Will Take Control Of Upcoming Horror Movie
You know you are one of those people who yells at the TV when you watch a horror movie. “Don’t go that way, it’s a dead end!” Well a new venture will let you do just that.
Genvid Entertainment and Konami Digital Entertainment announced SILENT HILL: Ascension, a massively interactive live event (MILE) launching next year. SILENT HILL: Ascension will immerse participants around the globe in the psychological horror at the heart of SILENT HILL by putting an all-new SILENT HILL story and characters into the hands of the audience as the narrative unfolds, live on multiple platforms.
“Genvid’s MILE experience presents a wild, epic, and innovative new way to immerse yourself in the horrors of SILENT HILL,” said J.J. Abrams, whose Bad Robot Games is directing the art and sound design. Anna Sweet, Bad Robot Games CEO, added, “SILENT HILL is one of the scariest horror franchises of all time, with an amazing fan base.”
Being able to have a say in the entertainment you are watching has been a built-in feature for video game players almost since their inception. But as games have gotten more cinematic, to the point where game trailers can be confused for movie trailers the blending of the two genres was basically asking for a project like this.
“SILENT HILL: Ascension is a new form of entertainment that blends community, live storytelling and interactivity into something that will be deeper and scarier when experienced together,” said Jacob Navok, CEO of Genvid. “We are thrilled to be working with the talented teams at Bad Robot Games, Behaviour Interactive and DJ2 Entertainment to bring SILENT HILL: Ascension to life.”
Genvid – in conjunction with development partners Bad Robot Games, Behaviour Interactive, and DJ2 Entertainment – looks forward to revealing more details soon. Fans can stay up to date on details of SILENT HILL: Ascension by visiting Ascension.com and following Genvid on Facebook and Twitter.
