    PT Inspired Silent Hill: The Short Message Released for Free

    The first new Silent Hill game in over a decade.

It's also very reminiscent of a certain teaser called P.T. that came out in 2014 and went absolutely nowhere once Konami fired Hideo Kojima and got out of the video game business for a while.
