We’ll probably never get an official release of P.T. again, but one fan is doing his best to give fans another chance to play.
P.T. was originally created as a type of playable teaser for Silent Hills, a surreal horror game from Hideo Kojima. When Kojima left Konami, however, the game was cancelled, and Konami removed P.T. from the PlayStation store permanently. The only copies of the game are those that players downloaded before the game’s removal, and there’s currently no way to access the original game unless you already have it.
Now, though, one 17-year-old developer is working to remake the game entirely on PC. Qimsar has an early build of the demo up and already free-to-play on GameJolt.
According to Qimsar’s post on Reddit, his remake of the game uses “almost 100%” of the original assets, which were datamined from the original game. There are only a few pieces he’s still missing, which he outlines in his post.
“In total, I’ve spent about 140 hours on this and on the way, I’ve had to force myself to learn how to do a ton of things,” Qimsar writes. “Also, I’m 17 so if that adds any to my street cred, then there it is.”
Qimsar’s work-in-progress build of the game can be found on GameJolt. His version of P.T. is currently in early access and made to run on PC only.
