It’s one of gaming’s greatest tragedies: a Silent Hills installment created by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro and starring Norman Reedus, struck down by a vengeful Konami and cancelled before more than a “playable trailer” could be revealed. That trailer, a horrifying demo called P.T., was simultaneously wiped from the Playstation Store–permanently ending any chance for fans to dive back in.
But wait! Six courageous developers at a new company called Lillith Ltd. have banded together to create a spiritual successor to P.T. that looks every ounce as terrifying as the demo that stole our hearts. Can Allison Road be the survival-horror experience we’ve been looking for? And what does it’s existence say about the future of indie, fan-driven games?
Join Jessica Chobot as she tells you everything you need to know about Allison Road, and points the way towards a thrilling future full of Unreal Engine 4 Marios and unlicensed remakes of MediEvil on today’s Nerdist News!
