P.T.-esque horror game Allison Road is back from the dead

Months after being cancelled, P.T.-inspired horrific walking simulator Allison Road has been brought back from the dead by original developer Christian Kesler and the new studio he and his wife have cofounded: Far From Home.

The project's tangled history is intriguing: it was originally being Kickstarted last year as the debut project of U.K studio Lilith (not to be confused with the Shanghai-based Lilith Games), but that campaign was canned after Team17 offered to publish it.

This summer that publishing deal fell through and the game was cancelled without much in the way of explanation. Now, speaking to IGN, Kesler says he plans to pick up work on the project again as a solo developer.

"After the setback, I took a bit of a break from working on it and re-evaluated all the work that had been done so far," Kessler said. "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.”

The project currently has no firm release date. Kesler previously worked on the game as a solo effort, and last year he told Gamasutra that his prior experience producing CG for films had helped him make a "pretty smooth" transition into game development.
