The founder of Dutch developer Blue Box Game Studios has never portrayed himself like this before. “I wanted to make a short video to show myself, to show that I’m a real person. I have no connection with Hideo Kojima. I’m not an actor. I don’t work in Silent Hill.”
There has been a lot of confusion and speculation online about Abandoned. When the game was revealed on PlayStation Blog a few months ago, players were already anticipating that it might be a secret project from Metal Gear maker Hideo Kojima. Karaman quickly suppressed this, including through an interview with a sister site player. nl.
But last week, players started speculating again on the possibility that it might be a new game from Kojima, or perhaps a new Silent Hill game. Last Friday, Kahraman again denied having anything to do with Kojima.
A few weeks ago, the Dutch developer announced that a special app will be launched on the PS5 Store, where game trailers can be viewed in real time. This should provide the most accurate representation of the graphics. The app’s founder, Hasan Kahraman, said last Friday that the app would launch on Tuesday, June 22. However, this weekend the developer announced via social media that the release of the app has been postponed to next Friday.
