Unfortunately the Silent Hill Play Novel was never official released outside of Japan. Luckily there have been some dedicated Silent Hill fans who’ve not only translated the game but have made available several ways to play for yourself!
Text Only Translations
Toby Normoyle’s (loc182) Translations: The very first Play Novel translations. I used these very guides to play through a Japanese ROM of the game!
- Cybil Scenario Translation Guide (JIS)
- Harry’s Scenario Translation Guide (JIS)
- Play Guide (JIS)
- The Boy’s Spring Scenario
Site Affiliate Silent Hill Memories has used Toby Normoyle’s English translations screencaps of all the backgrounds scenes and linked together all the story branches. It’s essentially a way to play through the entire game without having to download a rom!
Flash Game Translations
Site Affiliate AlchemillaHospital.net has a playable flash version of Toby Normoyle’s English translation for the Harry, Cybil, and Andy scenarios! It’s another great way to experience the game without downloading a rom!
