PT inspired Indie horror Allison Road is stunning

Everyone is still licking the wounds of the Silent Hills cancellation, however Allison Road just might satiate that thirst somewhat.

Set in a British suburban house, Allison Road stars an unnamed protagonist that awakes in aforementioned house with no memory of how they got there. The game is apparently heavily inspired by last year’s PT, and Allison Road’s concept and environmental artist Chris Kesler explained how:

Last year in August, P.T. came out. Of course, instant download. And it was amazing! Like for me, it was just an incredible ride. I finished the whole thing the same night, and frankly I was quite… disturbed… after that. I realized two things that night. 1.) My house is scary as hell at night. 2.) You can make an entire short game with only one hallway. Who would have thought? Somehow it never occurred to me that something on such a small scale could totally work, but that night it really clicked.

The game is being built on Unreal Engine 4 and will have full Oculus Rift support. It’s set to come out in 2016 on PC and hopefully other platforms later down the line.

    Here we go… the first PT inspired Horror games are coming.

    Not like PT was great because it was unique and clever and unexpected.

    Kinda ruins the point of PT, really. I feel myself actually getting angry about this for no reason, BAHHH!

    Oh well… we gotta take what we get.
    Hope it will be out on PS4 too.

  • Henrikm

    I thought it looked interesting.

    I like how the clock says ‘clock’

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And with the failure of Konami to capitalize on PTs innovations, it’s not surprising that the indie gamespace would pounce on their ideas a framework.

      I agree its a bummer Konami did not realise this could be a idea that worked. Others is taking points now of what could have been.

    So PT is the new word for demo now? Anyway, Anytime a (dark) horror game is being made i watch like a hawk.

    At least P.T. is making others think. That’s something to be proud about.

  • James Turok

    I am still sad the P.T. will not be in stores ever again, at least I downloaded it when the time came.

    At least the creator admits he ripped off someone else’s idea. Now he’s asking players to fund his rip-off via Kickstarter.
