Allison Road game

Allison Road, the indie horror considered the spiritual successor to Hideo Kojima and Konami's ill-fated PT, is heading to Kickstarter. Developers Lilith Ltd released prototype gameplay footage at the end of June which has since racked up 1.6 million views.

The Allison Road Twitter page confirmed the impending Kickstarter campaign, promising some "cool perks" for the game should it generate enough money through the crowdfunding website. Developed in Unreal Engine 4, the game is heavily inspired by PT – released in 2014 but pulled from PSN earlier in 2015.

PT became an instant horror classic despite only existing to tease the release of Silent Hills, a now-cancelled game that was to be developed by both Metal Gear Solid's Kojima and horror maestro Guillermo Del Toro. The apparent split between Kojima and Konami led to the game's cancellation and PT's removal from PSN.

Developed by fans as a spiritual successor to this, the game will play from the same first-person perspective and be set in a highly detailed home – in this case a town house in Bristol. Through the house, the unnamed protagonist will collect evidence of a grisly crime and naturally there will be some supernatural hijinks to keep the scares coming thick and fast.
