Allison Road launches on Kickstarter
To say that the cancellation of Konami's Silent Hills was a massive disappointment might be the understatement of this gaming generation. Fortunately all is not lost, and today U.K. developer Lilith launched the Kickstarter campaign for their debut project, and what is being dubbed as "P.T. resurrected" by fans all over the internet, Allison Road.
Allison Road is a first person, narratively driven, horror adventure where you take on the role of an un-named amnesiac protagonist that wakes up in his empty house, and has to figure out what has happened to his family. As you move about the house, time passes in the game world. As the clock inches closer to 3 AM, things start to go bump in the night.
Allison Road emphasizes atmosphere and storytelling rather than style and action and requires players to take their time and explore the environment around them. Every character in the game has an intriguing and a disturbing backstory that is so fully fleshed out to the point that they feel like a real person.
For horror fans, this is a game worth getting excited about. It started as a one man passion project, but has evolved into something with the potential to be much more. The campaign has already raised over 10% of it's funding goal on the first day. To say that things are looking up for the Allison Road's chances at reaching its funding goal, might be yet another understatement of this gaming generation.
