Konami and developer Climax are trying to stuff the genie back in the bottle and the horse back into the open barn as the group's upcoming Sony PlayStation Portable title Silent Hill Origins has somehow escaped to the Internet in playable demo form. Oopsie!
Silent Hill is one of Konami's strongest franchises and the embarrassing and potentially damaging incident happens just days before it is due to show off the game to the public at the Games Convention in Leipzig. Websites checked by GamesIndustry.biz reveal that the demo was uploaded August 19, with one site seeing well over 1200 users downloading the code at the time of writing.
Some people seem to think that it's the E3 version of the game (or one very close to it) that leaked out to the masses. If that's true and if you should happen to get your hands on it, I'm interested in hearing if you find the puzzles contained therein to be a confusing, frustrating mess. As you'll recall, when I played the game at E3 last month I had to have help from a Konami representative to know what to do and where to go next. I dare you to figure out what to do with the golden egg without assistance.
