Allison Road to Continue Where P.T. and Silent Hills Left Off
Silent Hills is cancelled and Kojima is likely walking towards the sunset, but Allison Road continues in the direction Konami abandoned.
The newfound UK studio Lilith Ltd. released a 13-minute-long gameplay demo (via Polygon) of Allison Road, their first-person survival horror game done in the style of P.T., Hideo Kojima's Playable Teaser for the cancelled Silent Hills. Originally started as a one-man fan project last year, five more developers joined the team to bring the haunts of Allison Road to life, and the results are impressive. Road's visuals look on par with Kojima Productions' Fox Engine. Similar to P.T., you must explore a townhouse that holds no supernatural elements... at first. Let the ominous alarm clock set the tone for Road's subtle changes that are going to turn the apartment into a living hell.
Allison Road takes place over the course of five nights, and you'll need to uncover the whereabouts of your family members while sleuthing through the secrets of the house. While this sounds a bit like Gone Home, we assure you that things will turn dark and horrific. Unlike P.T., you're able to pick up certain items in the environment, rotate them around and interact with them to help this horror story unfold. Just make sure you keep an eye out for Lily and the other dark entities residing deep within the walls of the townhouse. It's quite terrifying to see the haunting expand throughout the home, building up until you see Lily's corpse reanimate for the first time and chase you down in the creepiest way possible.
Unfortunately, no type of launch window has been set for Allison Road, as this video showcases the game's pre-alpha stage of development.
