A Remake of Kojima's P.T. is Available in VR on itch.io Now

Developer RadiusGordello re-created Hideo Kojima's psychological horror game P.T. in the Unreal engine with full VR support. Unreal PT has been in development for the last nine months, starting in April 2018 and ending in January 2019. The textures, models, animations, gameplay, and code have been recreated from scratch by RadiusGordello.

Gameplay in Unreal PT is touted as nearly identical to the original, however, the very end of the game has been changed to make beating it more consistent. The controls are explained as the game progresses, but there are also two text files in the main game director with controls and a guide on how to beat the game in case users get stuck anywhere.

While Unreal PT is a Windows only PC game, it does include controller support for botth PlayStation and Xbox controllers, as well as VR motion controllers. The game will automatically start in VR mode if you have a VR headset connected, though there have been some complaints among early users that the VR mode causes nausea. This is pretty common for games that weren't developed specifically for VR usage, and because Unreal PT is a remake of a PlayStation game from before the VR era, that label does still apply.

Kojima's P.T. was released on the PlayStation 4, ostensibly as a playable trailer for an upcoming entry in the Silent Hill franchise. The game was developed by Kojima Productions under the pseudonym 7780s Studio, and was the brainchild of Kojima and film director Guillermo Del Toro. The full game would have been called Silent Hills if it ever released, however, the project was canceled by Konami, and P.T. was removed from the PlayStation store.

You can find Unreal PT up on itch.io, though it may not stay there for long as most remakes of P.T. are subject to IP owner takedowns.
