P.T. Spiritual Successor Allison Road Back in Production

P.T. Spiritual Successor Allison Road Back in Production

After the project was killed, it has come back from the dead.

Following Konami's cancellation of Silent Hills and removal of P.T. from the PlayStation Store, there have been a number of projects that evoke a similar vibe. The most visible of those projects was Allison Road. The game started off as a Kickstarter project in September 2015, but the developer stopped the crowdfunding campaign a month later when it signed with publisher Team17. Then in early June, the game was cancelled.

Now in statement to IGN, original Allison Road creator Christian Kesler has announced that the game is back in development. He's going it alone with a new personal studio called Far From Home.

"I'm actually really happy to be able to announce that [Allison Road] will continue," said Kesler. "We had a lot of support online and some folks out there are just incredibly nice."

"It did take a bit of soul searching to find the drive again to work on Allison Road and to simply make a call on what to do next. After the set back, I took a bit of a break from working on it and re-evaluated all the work that had been done so far - the whole journey, so to speak. I started making a few (in my opinion) necessary changes to the story and the flow, little bits and pieces here and there, and before I knew it, it sort of naturally came back to life."

Kesler believes that paring down to a one-man show for Allison Road won't be a problem, considering that's how the project originally started.

"For our gameplay trailer, I did all the modeling, texturing, shaders, lighting, etc., and thankfully a lot of the mechanics are already implemented from the previous development phase, so I can comfortably take the game forward by myself," said Kesler. "If and when it comes to a point where new features and mechanics are required, or old ones need changing, I'll go look for support."

This of course means the game has no release date.
