On Wednesday, IGN commenced an official live stream called “Silent Hill: Ascension An Inside Look,” which provided viewers with a captivating behind-the-scenes glimpse into Genvid Entertainment’s upcoming interactive streaming series game project, Silent Hill: Ascension.
Esteemed members of the game’s development team, including Stephan Bugaj, the chief creative officer with a background at Pixar and Telltale, Martin Montgomery, the creative director hailing from Riot and Telltale, and Shiaw-Ling Lai, the production director associated with Wizards of the Coast and Telltale, shared fascinating insights about the game. Notably, the video also introduced the newly announced music composer, Cevin Key.
Genvid Entertainment’s CEO, Jacob Navok, previously characterized the game as delving into the profound theme of intergenerational trauma experienced by characters from various corners of the world.
The interactive streaming experience allows viewers to actively shape the unfolding story in real-time, as the stream utilizes Amazon’s IVS backend for Twitch, enabling it to run seamlessly wherever Twitch is accessible.
By completing missions and solving puzzles that impact the characters’ mental states, the audience effectively determines the definitive ending of the narrative.
In the upcoming months, the development team will reveal further details, such as the game’s launch date, where to watch and participate, and how individuals can audition for roles in the show.
The highly anticipated project is scheduled to debut later this year, with the collaborative efforts of Genvid Entertainment, Behaviour Interactive (known for Dead by Daylight), J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Games, and dj2 Entertainment—a renowned company specializing in adapting games for television and film.
