17-year-old developer "Qimsar" posted a blog entry on Game Jolt last week, saying that Konami asked him to take down his PC remake of of "P.T." (Playable Teaser), Konami's demo for its cancelled Silent Hills game. However, Qimsar claimed Konami is offering him merchandise and an internship.
According to Qimsar, the Konami representative who called him said the remake was very popular with the Konami staff.
Qimsar estimated that he spent over 180 hours working on his remake of P.T. He released an unfinished version 0.9 (shown in the video below) at the beginning of the month and was planning to release v0.9.5 on Sunday.
The title would have featured game director Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear), acclaimed film director Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, Mimic, Blade II, Pacific Rim), and actor Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead, Mimic, Blade II, Iron Man: Rise of Technovore). However, Kojima left Konami in 2015.
Kojima established a new studio, and Reedus is playing the main character of its first game, Death Stranding. del Toro is not creatively involved with the project but his likeness appears as a character in the game.
