''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.

* [[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.

Marissa is a special case, as when she's seen she is too far away to tell details, so she starts as a pixel version of herself talking on the phone from when Vanessa could see her from the hotel. She's gotten a more detailed one now that her and Vanessa have actually met.
