Another one for the horror junkie! Silent Hill: Alchemilla is a fan made edition of the classic survival horror. This is not a remake or a remaster it is an all new episode of appreciation to the horror. This comes straight from the nightmares of the fans.

Silent Hill: Alchemilla is developed using Valves Source engine and focuses on the eerie atmosphere that is iconic of Silent Hill. There are no maps, no notepads, and no inventories. The point is that you write and draw your own clues to progress through the game. This is partly due to tech limits of the source system but also is part of the immersion the creators are seeking.

Source is a 3D video game engine developed by Valve. It debuted in June 2004 with Counter-Strike: Source, followed shortly by Half-Life 2, and has been in active development ever since.

Source was created to power first-person shooters, but has also been used professionally to create role-playing, side-scroller, MOBA, puzzle, MMORPG, top-down shooter and real-time strategy games.

In our game you will not find inventory system or notes system and the reason the same - there are no people who could do that on Source engine (people start to hate it cause it outdated). So just sit tight, take pen and notebook and play as hardcore gamer, make notes yourself, draw your maps yourself. If you Silent Hill fan - you should deal with that. Have a good game and a bad dream after!

If you remember rightly 'Alchemilla' is one of two medical centers in the original Silent Hill. Alchemilla Hospital is presented as an emergency department in Silent Hill, Silent Hill: Origins, Silent Hill: Homecoming and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. Alessa Gillespie was taken here after her mother, Dahlia Gillespie, attempted to use her in a ritual by setting fire to their home with Alessa still inside. Alessa was kept in a room deep inside of the hospital's basement; all of the nurses, excluding Lisa Garland, were told to never enter the basement.

Alchemilla is a pretty stand up game I have to say, it brings the horror in spades and the puzzles are seriously tricky affairs. It is a great homage to the franchise and only increases my desire to play the official Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro edition coming to next-gen machines sometime this year.

Wanna play Silent Hill: Alchemilla right now? Head here to download it. You'll also need to install the Source SDK 2013 through the Steam Tools library.
