First introduced in Konami's 1999 Silent Hill, the mysterious fictional rural town of Silent Hill has physically appeared and been traversed in 5 of the 6 mainline game titles released, as well as being the inspiration for the film and comics' setting.
Portrayed as what could be considered an archetypal New England tourist town, Silent Hill is shown throughout the course of the series to be anything but ordinary. Its chief industries are tourism and, to a lesser extent, agriculture. It is a small town with a population below 30,000, and its key industry – tourism – is in a state of steady decline.
Some of the town's conservative residents oppose modernization and the transformation of the town into a tourist attraction, and although Silent Hill appears at a glance to be an innocuous rural town, this has brought about an unexpected darkness of drug distribution. A religious cult of a considerable scale known as The Order exists behind the scenes.
|“||The name of that town is Silent Hill.
Although it is known as a scenic resort area, it is a cursed place where the town's former inhabitants were once driven away, brutal executions were once carried out, and a mysterious plague was once prevalent.
The town is centered around Toluca Lake, from which a thick fog perpetually enshrouds the area and makes vague the reality and dreams of those who visit the town.
And according to those who have seen them, there are also times when "things" that should not naturally exist appear.
A few incidents that have occurred in this town up to this point have gone unaddressed, leaving behind a great number of mysteries.
Here and now, looking back on it all, let's elucidate these mysteries one by one.
