Hideo Kojima will watch horror movies to make the scariest horror game

Hideo Kojima plans on watching a bunch of scary movies to make the 'scariest horror game'

Hideo Kojima is already on an adventure to make source new inspiration for his next title, this time though he is forcing himself to watch horror movies.

Before Kojima left Konami and formed his own game development studio, Kojima Productions, he was in the middle of developing a brand new Silent Hills game. This new Silent Hills game had a demo called PT, and while Kojima can't continue development on Silent Hills, he can make his own horror game, and it won't be a breeze either.

According to Kojima's official Twitter account, he will be forcing himself to watch all the scariest horror movies in order to "awaken my horror soul". Kojima mentions a Thai horror movie called THE EYE, which is the movie he rented and tried to watch while he was making PT. Unfortunately, Kojima didn't have the guts to finish it but will be giving it another go for another hopeful dosage of inspiration. Does this mean Kojima's next title will fall into the horror genre? Perhaps, but plans do change quite quickly in early development.
