Then he reveals all about his bittersweet time producing Silent Hill titles for Konami – as well as the subsequent and vicious backlash from sections of that IP’s fanbase. Bringing us up to date, Tomm shares what it’s like to work on licensed games at WayForward, as well as the experience of working with other beloved Japanese IPs such as Contra and Rocket Knight Adventures.
