Silent Hill: Shattered Memories originally pitched as “Cold Heart”

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories was originally a very different game. Konami was initially pitched “Silent Hill: Cold Heart” by developer Climax Studios.
Cold Heart did retain some elements from Shattered Memories such as themes of ice and cold. However, mostly everything else was changed. Combat, for instance – something absent from Shattered Memories – was planned for Cold Heart. The game also wasn’t originally intended to be a reimagining of the first Silent Hill.
Check out the gallery below for a look at Climax’s 14-page pitch to Konami.
