P.T. gets a new remake on PC that dev says will be the only one that will get completed

A fan-made P.T. remake is available to download on PC right now courtesy of a 17 year-old developer.

Hideo Kojima’s cancelled Silent Hills started out life as a spooky demo on the PSN Store, that was scrubbed from the face of the earth after Konami pulled the plug, although if you downloaded P.T. on your console, you can still replay it if you enjoy your nostalgia laden trips down memory lane to be slightly damp and distressing.

Fans have been recreating the P.T. experience ever since, from a Minecraft version to P.T.-inspired indie horror Allison Road. P.T. for PC is the latest attempt at giving players the experience from the original demo, and has been developed by 17 year-old Qimsar.

“I’m remaking PT on PC. Many others have begun trying to make their own ports, but as far as I can tell, I’m the only person who is still working on it, and I’m the only one who will finish,” Qimsar said in a Reddit post, via Polygon.

“Prior to having started this project, I’ve only had 6 hours of experience with the Unreal Engine…and this is my first game. 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. Also, I’m 17 so if that adds any to my street cred, then there it is.”

This isn’t the first time P.T. has been recreated on PC, with two prototypes earlier this year courtesy of SmoggyChips and LinusPixel.

In anticipation of being hit with a takedown, Qimsar has offered to “personally upload the game to each individual person who wants it.”

You can download the first build now on Qimsar’s Game Jolt page.
