P.T. was a huge hit with PlayStation fans, and the full game (Silent Hills) was eagerly anticipated by millions. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be. The game was cancelled, and the playable teaser was pulled from Sony’s online store. Recently, an impressive fan-made recreation of P.T. surfaced online, complete with a playable demo.

As many predicted, Konami has stepped in to take action against the fan project. Developer Qimsar cannot continue development, and he has taken the playable demo down at Konami’s request. However, there’s a silver lining to this cloud. Qimsar
wrote an extensive explanation of the situation, and he claims Konami has offered him an internship.

“It hasn’t been made super official or anything, but a freakin’ internship for me with Konami in which I would do stuff with Konami US, EU, and Japan. Internships tend to turn into jobs fairly often and for a 17-year old who isn’t even a senior in high school just yet, to get this for the very first game project that he’s ever worked on with 6 hours of prior UE4 experience (and a fair amount of Unity experience (35 hours give or take) but that’s irrelevant :P), that’s pretty good.”

Qimsar says he spoke extensively with a Konami employee who told him that his fan-made take on
P.T. was popular around the office, but had to be squashed for legal reasons. Konami has not yet issued a public statement on the issue.
