Prepare to Be Even More Creeped Out by Hideo Kojima’s ‘P.T.’

A recently uncovered secret from Hideo Kojima’s P.T. (standing for playable teaser) revealed that the player is constantly being closely followed by the ghost known as Lisa, who is looming in the background of the game. Creepy right?

P.T. –– a collaboration between video game legend Hideo Kojima and film wizard Guillermo del Toro — was released back in 2014 and was intended to act as an interactive teaser for the game Silent Hills. Silent Hills was going to be the next installment in the Silent Hill horror game series, but unfortunately this never came to pass. A falling out between Kojima and publisher Konami led to the cancellation of Silent Hills. Fans of P.T. and the Silent Hill series were left disheartened by this decision due to the strong performance of P.T. and how promising it looked in terms of visuals, scares and story. The cancellation also led to P.T. being removed from the PlayStation Store, with any opportunity to download the game being lost. Only those who had already downloaded the teaser were able to play it and this led to even more intrigue on the hidden secrets concealed within the game. Indie developer Lance McDonald decided to delve further into the game and by using a camera hack, revealed the creepy ghost stalker.

The game itself focuses on a man attempting to escape from a freakish house with seemingly never-ending corridors. The player does have an encounter with Lisa in the game towards the end but they are also plagued by eerie noises and spooky shadows that approach from behind. McDonald’s discovery shows that Lisa is the culprit of all the hardships throughout, attaching herself to the player’s back as soon as they pick up the flashlight in the bathroom.

Check out Lance’s Twitter for more details on his creepy find as well as video clips if you really want to ramp up the nightmare fuel.

I wasn’t planning on sleeping tonight anyway.
