Four years ago James Young suffered through a tragic, life-threatening accident when he lost his arm and leg after falling in between two train carriages. The subsequent days were a dark time for Young, but he sought solace through a true passion of his--gaming. Young would play his Playstation 4 using his right arm and teeth in a feat of true dedication.

As fate would have it, Konami eventually featured an ad calling upon all interested gamer amputees to enter a raffle of sorts, in which the selected applicant would receive a prosthetic inspired by Konami's Metal Gear Solid. Young was fortunate enough to be selected, and even offer up his two-cents on the prosthetic's design.

The carbon-fiber limb is controlled by muscle signals from Young. He can shake hands, lift groceries, and pick up small objects like coins. Young has already taken the initiative to start up his own fundraising campaign, with hopes to further improve upon the technology for future users (an example being the arm weighs 10 lb, requires harness and gel, and can't be worn all day).

Here's the developer, Nate's description of the game:

Pokémon Apex is developed with an adult Pokémon fan in mind. The game contains some adult dialogue (some swearing) and themes (death, abandonment), and some minor horror elements. Furthermore, the game is intended to be somewhat difficult, meaning that you will need to think about your strategies and make conscientious choices about your team in order to progress. Playing through the game haphazardly will get you into trouble.

Also, this game is for people who prefer to take their time in games to explore their environment and uncover hidden details. There are lots of small details hidden throughout the game, as well as secret areas and items that reward meticulous players.

The game's still in development, but you can download it over here to try it out!

You can download James Brady's Silent Hill recreation here, and have a walk around in the strangely captivating place yourself. While the teaser itself isn't a spot-on recreation of Midwich Elementary School, it does manage to pay homage to certain elements drawn from the series as a whole like the Halo of the Sun icon, and Robbie the Rabbit.

What up Robbie, what up.
