Allison Road, a PT-style survival horror game, has just been picked up by Worms publisher Team17, after developer Lilith Ltd cancelled the game’s Kickstarter campaign.
Allison Road initially hit Kickstarter after receiving a positive response from its community and press after releasing their prototype gameplay video, which received over 1.9 million views on Youtube. While the game was on track to be funded by its October 21 deadline, Team17 decided to pick up the game to diversify their portfolio.
“Allison Road is exactly the kind of game we are looking for to expand our label’s portfolio, the game is absolutely stunning and I look forward to helping Chris and his team on their journey,” said Team17’s CEO, Debbie Bestwick. “Our label was created by games developers for games developers and has been built in such a way to allow games makers of all sizes to focus 100% on the most important aspect – the game.”
“We were incredibly excited when we received the call from Team17. Whilst signing with them was never in question, we were however faced with the decision to either carry on with our Kickstarter campaign or to withdraw from the program and get started straight away,” added owner of Lilith Ltd. “After much deliberation, we chose the latter and are now looking forward to working with Team17 and accessing their vast resources to really take Allison Road to the next level.”
Allison Road is a survival horror game in which you play a character who wakes up one night in a house with no recollection of prior events. You must then uncover what happened to your family and face the horrors that await you in the house.
Allsion Road’s developer, Lilith Ltd, was formed in 2015 and consists of entertainment industry veterans with a passion for games. Members of the team have worked on various movie and game titles in the past including The Avengers, The Hobbit, and Prometheus just to name a few.
While we’re all very excited to see more of what Allison Road has to offer, we won’t be hearing much more on it until early next year. In the meantime, why not watch the prototype gameplay video below?
