When Silent Hills came to an unfortunate and screeching halt, gamers were left understandably bummed by its unexpected exit. Then Allison Road started to trickle out into social media, building up a storm of support for having a very similar aesthetic and approach in its demo footage. That makes this news so exciting for horror fans.
Games industry veteran and independent games label Team17 are incredibly pleased to confirm details of their latest partner and game signing, Lilith’s first person next-gen survival horror game, Allison Road.
Allison Road recently hit Kickstarter after a great response from its community and press that saw their prototype gameplay video receive over 1.9 million views on YouTube. The game was on track to fund towards the end of October, however by joining Team17’s games’ label it will allow Allison Road’s creators to focus 100% on the game whilst having resources, experience and support available to them.
Debbie Bestwick, Team17’s CEO said “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. 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’.”
Chris Kesler, owner of Lilith added, “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. 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”.
Further details on Allison Road will be available early 2016.
