‘Allison Road’ is Back from the Dead!

In June, the P.T.-inspired psychological horror game Allison Road met the same fate as the demo that inspired it. The game’s publisher, Team17, quietly confirmed its cancellation and promised to issue a statement within the “next few days.” Fast forward nearly two weeks later and we got our statement, but still no explanation. There wasn’t much to glean from it, unless you weren’t aware of the “many layers of complexity” involved in modern games development.

It seemed as if there was no way this could end well, and that made the news of its revival all the more surprising. Allison Road creator Christian Kesler has resumed development of the title, albeit with a slightly refocused direction, as Kesler recently explained in an interview with IGN.

“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,” says Kesler. “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.”

Allison Road will be the debut title for the newly formed Far From Home, which Kesler co-founded with his wife. No release date has been announced.

    I’m glad that this game is getting back on track, it definitely looks like an interesting and creepy experience. There’s something so sinister about not feeling safe in the one place you associate safety with; home.

  • Just watched the video to the end. Bit of poo came out at the end, not gonna lie

    This was a pleasant surprise! I still think this genre of inspired P.T. games is cursed. I wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up being canned in the end.
