''Promise'' was updated daily and has an archive of over 900 pages, but [[OrphanedSeries stopped updating in late 2015]]. Happily, it has resumed updating as of June 2017. And after the canceling of SilentHills, it's good to know that not all promising Silent Hill projects have gone under.

* OrphanedSeries: In 2015, the series briefly had its own website and Patreon page, but both of these fell through, and the series stopped mid-storyline.

** Borje's name apparently means "help" or "save." [[spoiler: James, who Borje suspiciously resembles, had his name's origin in a name meaning "may God protect."]]

''Silent Hill: Promise'' is a FanSequel ''{{Silent Hill}}'' [[InteractiveComic interactive]] [[FanWebComics web comic]] created by Greer-the-Raven, currently hosted on both on deviantART and its own website. An attempt to create a full-fledged ''Silent Hill'' "game," ''Promise'' uses the faux AdventureGame style of ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'' to [[AudienceParticipation involve readers]] in deciding what the heroine should do next.

Vanessa Sunderland is asleep in her bed in the early hours of the morning when her cellphone starts to ring. Picking up the phone, she recognizes the area code for the vacation town, Silent Hill, and picks up, hearing static before the voice of her missing Uncle [[SilentHill2 James]] crackles through the line. He had been gone for three years, most thought he was dead and the phone dies before she can figure out exactly where he is.

* WorldOfSymbolism: From the items in the world, to the enemy designs, to scenes replicated by mannequins and puppets, it gives a slight perspective into Vanessa's backstory as [[spoiler: revealed by Angela in SilentHill2, people in Silent Hill experience their own personal torment.]]

* [[spoiler: IncestIsRelative: It's becoming increasingly-obvious that Vanessa had the hots for her Uncle James. The big question is whether or not he knew, and if he did, [[YourCheatingHeart if he returned it]] [[{{Squick}} at all...]]]]


Added DiffLines:

* ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime / ViolationOfCommonSense: The artist isn't above allowing some of the more outrageous suggestions, but will typically include a snarky comment mocking the protagonist for making such an absurd decision. More to the point, the action will usually be spun in a way that [[RailRoading the story can still continue]], such as kicking a locked door in frustration having the unintended consequence of knocking a key item off a shelf.
