‘Ashen Falls’ is an Eerie Tribute to ‘Silent Hill’

This has been a generous couple of weeks for discovering promising indie projects. Joining Hunger, Oxenfree and Through the Woods on my growing list of games that have recently caught my eye is something called Ashen Falls.

Conceived by artist Gilles Ketting, Ashen Falls is still very much in the conceptual stages of its development. I don’t usually cover games that aren’t quite games yet, but I was willing to make an exception for this one for the simple fact that I believe it has potential.

The concept was heavily influenced by the Silent Hill series — a popular source of inspiration for developers of upcoming horror games these days — as well as Ketting’s desire to find out what his own take on the survival horror franchise might look like. You can see some of that below. For the rest, head on over to the Ashen Falls Facebook page.

    Hmm monsters don’t seem to fit the locations, and clearly the artist IS a SH fan, still all together it looks interesting. Main character needs tweaks as well and it does not seem that there is any story here, yet but, definitely gonna look up the title.

  • Yep, these pieces are awesome and I’d be definitely interested in playing this!

    these images are beautiful! they are also (especially the woods pics) very creepy/spooky! lol. the giant creature thing and the woods scene pic with the hooded(?) figures are my faves.

    Looks very good. Reminds me of Stephen King’s ‘The Mist’ as well (which makes sense since the book influenced the SH series as well).

    Concept art looks great! But unfortunately I hate to be the one to say it, conceptually it looks to borrow a little too heavy handed from Silent Hill. Even the larger logo which seems to even have a symbol very similar to the Seal of Samael in SH. This looks a little more like rip off than homage….

      Well considering that Silent Hills is probably canceled now, id rather have a decent ripoff than nothing at all.
