We’ve all heard the one about the call com­ing from in­side the house, but do you know the camp­fire story about the hor­ror game that dis­ap­peared from the PlaySta­tion Store? Okay, it might not re­quire a seance or lit can­dles in front of the mir­ror to bring it out, but the myth­i­cal P.T demo (or ‘Playable Teaser’) for the Silent Hills game that never was is tech­ni­cally only avail­able on old PS4s. Quickly af­ter Guillermo del Toro

and Hideo Ko­jima’s hor­ror dream was quashed, the demo dis­ap­peared en­tirely from the PlaySta­tion Store. Imag­ine then, find­ing an old dusty con­sole in an at­tic, plug­ging it in and play­ing a game where a grimy pa­per bag talk­ing to you is the most pleas­ant part of this partly ran­domly-gen­er­ated ex­pe­ri­ence. Think about an in­fi­nite cor­ri­dor push­ing you in night­mar­ish loops, chal­leng­ing you to turn cor­ners to re­veal elon­gated shad­owy vi­sions, jump scares, rolling eye­balls, and fleshy sob­bing crea­tures in bath­room sinks. There are even only ru­moured ways to un­lock the fi­nal re­veal of Nor­man Ree­dus wan­der­ing out into the leg­endary foggy town and, one of them in­volves recit­ing words des­per­ately into your mi­cro­phone be­tween the chimes of a clock. P.T might not sound it, but it’s ter­ri­fy­ingly real.
