Team17 has announced they will be partnering with developer Lilith, to help release its upcoming first personal survival horror game, Allison Road.
Allison Road recently launched on Kickstarter and the prototype gameplay video has already received over 1.9 million views on YouTube. Though Allison Road was on track to be funded towards the end of October, this new partnership with Team17 will allow the developer to focus 100% on creating the finished product whilst having all the resources available to them.
“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,” said Team17’s CEO Debbie Bestwick. “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’.”
“We were incredibly excited when we received the call from Team17,” said owner of Lilith Chris Kesler. “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”.
Allison Road has players control a character who has awoken without any recollection of prior events, as players must discover what happened to their family and face off against the horrors inside the house. Allison Road is scheduled to launch early in 2016 for next generation consoles.
