Team17 signs “Allison Road” saying it’s “exactly the kind of game we are looking for”
It was confirmed this week that Team17 signed Lilith’s First-Person “Allison Road,” a next-gen survival game expected to launch in 2016. Originally, the game “Allison Road” was on Kickstarter, the game saw a tremendous response from the online community with the prototype gameplay video receiving over 1.9 million views on YouTube.
In the game players wake up one night without any recollection of prior events. Players will have to uncover what happened to their family as they face off against the horrors that await in the house. The publishers teases the game asking, “What would you do if you could feel something stalking you in the dark, in the safety of your own home? If you couldn’t tell what’s real and what’s not?”
The game itself is a narrative-driven survival horror game, that will release more information in early 2016.
The game was on track to fund towards the end of October, however by joining Team17’s games’ label it will allow Allison Road’s creators to focus 100% on the game whilst having resources, experience and support available to them.
Debbie Bestwick, Team17’s CEO said, “Allison Road is exactly the kind of game we are looking for to expand our label’s portfolio, the game is absolutely stunning and I look forward to helping Chris and his team on their journey. Our label was created by games developers for games developers and has been built in such a way to allow games makers of all sizes to focus 100% on the most important aspect ‘The Game’.”
Chris Kesler, owner of Lilith added, “We were incredibly excited when we received the call from Team17. Whilst signing with them was never in question, we were however faced with the decision to either carry on with our Kickstarter campaign or to withdraw from the program and get started straight away. After much deliberation, we chose the latter and are now looking forward to working with Team17 and accessing their vast resources to really take Allison Road to the next level”.
