Allison Road, a first-person survival horror title touted as being the spiritual successor to Kojima Productions’ shelved Silent Hills’ demo P.T., has today launched its £250,000 Kickstarter campaign.
Developed by independent UK studio Lilith, Allison Road received a spectacular response on Steam Greenlight earlier in the year, and has already attracted over 100 backers in less than an hour since the crowdfunding campaign went live.
Created in Unreal Engine 4 with optional Oculus Rift support, the game’s developers promise that Allison Road will “return to the roots of true psychological horror”, and “create a thoroughly engrossing experience” through the use of “high-end tech, disturbing gameplay and a compelling narrative”.
The title is set in a quiet Manchester suburb, wherein players must investigate a series of sinister events within their, presumably traumatising, house and elsewhere.
Various reward tiers are available, ranging from £15 for a Steam copy of the game, to a £5,000 launch party for the game that will provide users with a “unique horror experience”.
Providing it meets all of its stretch funding goals, Allison Road is scheduled to release on PC, Xbox One and PS4 in December 2016.
