First-person horror game Allison Road was officially cancelled back in June after developer Lilith and publisher Team17 parted ways, but now the developer has announced that the project is back from the dead and moving forward.
P.T.-inspired first-person horror game Allison Road has been cancelled.
Developer Lilith made the announcement on Twitter. "Sadly Allison Road had to be cancelled," the developer said. "Thx for all your support and very sad it came 2 this."
This cancellation is surprising as Allison Road had launched a reasonably successful Kickstarter campaign that raised £146K (towards a £250k goal) before Lilith cancelled it midway through when Worms publisher Team17 stepped in and offered a more appealing publishing deal.
P.T. spiritual successor Allison Road has cancelled its Kickstarter campaign, but only because it's been picked up by a publisher: Team 17.
The studio best known as the Worms developer, Team 17 is the publisher of such titles as Yooka-Laylee, The Escapists: The Walking Dead, Deadwood, Penarium, Beyond Eyes, and Sheltered
"Working with Team17 will give us the chance to make our game unhindered creatively, but at the same time will give us the resources, support and experience that only a 25 year old studio can give," Allison Road developer Lilith said in a Kickstarter update.
Earlier this summer we covered Allison Road, a horror game that bore more than a passing resemblance to Kojima Productions' now defunct Silent Hills teaser, P.T. Now, that project has launched a Kickstarter campaign.
Silent Hills may have been cancelled, but we could be getting the next best thing with Allison Road, a first-person horror game that looks like a spiritual successor to Kojima Productions' P.T., the now defunct free game designed to tease Konami's since shuttered horror title.
