New Purpose for this Blog
I’m starting this project by recreating the opening gameplay with Harry chasing Cheryl as a 2D top down perspective in Game Maker Studio 2. I will show what I have so far for the project. Plus, express why I chose the themes for Silent Hill and my plans for next week.

Chasing the Rabbit
Chasing the rabbit came to mind back when I was writing my first blog on Silent Hill on this site. I was looking at the map from the game and traced Harry’s route from his Jeep to the alley. Harry is going south meaning he’s going down. The alley acts as a rabbit hole. Harry chases Cheryl like Alice chases the White Rabbit. Harry chases Cheryl into the alleyway leading to the nightmare of Silent Hill. Just as Alice chases the Rabbit into the rabbit hole leading into Wonderland. Furthermore, Alice in Wonderland is referenced again with the colored plates puzzle in the hospital.
Now I will talk about my plans for next week.
