There’s no doubt I have a deep love for horror games. They are sick, brutal, and most of the time they could require a special kind of screwed up to enjoy and find the beauty of a carefully crafted masterpiece. This was what made Guillermo Del Toro and Hideo Kojima’s lovechild Silent Hills/P.T. such a smash hit. The game was disgusting, it was disturbing, it was beautiful, and in every way – it ultimately screwed with your head. After a year? The game was abruptly cancelled as news of Hideo Kojima leaving Konami after Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain had surfaced. This also meant the end of many of the upcoming franchises we know and loved.
Rising from the ashes like a phoenix comes Allison Road, a game that seeks to disturb you, screw with you, and ultimately make you crap your pants if you hadn’t already. In the trailer for the Kickstarter, we learn that players will take on the role of an unnamed protagonist whom has woken up one day and has somehow managed to have amnesia regarding their past. The player will be subjected to surviving five nights while trying to uncover the idea of what is happening or what has happened to your family, solve the mysteries behind the house, and take on the dark forces that are there included a named one known as “Lily”.
While trying to survive, players will be stuck within a house that has a clock that is always ticking towards the time 3:00am. To any that know? 3:00am is considered the Devils Hour, the Witching Hour or what have you. The question is? What is following you, what is stalking you within the dark? Can you tell what is real and what is not? This is where the single-player campaign will take place; your British townhouse.
At the original time of development, Allison Road was being developed by a one man team and has since grown to a six individuals who are truly passionate and in love with the project they are on. In their hopes for making an experience that is unforgettable the team at Lilith Ltd. has reached out for community support on Kickstarter in hopes to bring this P.T. successor to life. So how can you help? As of today you can head to the official Allison Road Kickstater page and pledge an undisclosed amount in hopes to see the game launch. If goals are met, Allison Road is expected to launch in 2016 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. VR support out of PC has not been stated, but we certainly hope it comes to consoles.
