PT-inspired Allison Road Drops Kickstarter and gets signed by Team17

Games industry veteran and independent games label Team17 are incredibly pleased to confirm details of their latest partner and game signing, Lilith’s first person next-gen survival horror game, Allison Road.

Allison Road recently hit Kickstarter after a great response from its community and press that saw their prototype gameplay video receive over 1.9 million views on YouTube. The game was on track to fund towards the end of October, however by joining Team17’s games’ label it will allow Allison Road’s creators to focus 100% on the game whilst having resources, experience and support available to them.

Debbie Bestwick, Team17’s CEO said “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. 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’.”

Chris Kesler, owner of Lilith added, “We were incredibly excited when we received the call from Team17. 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”.

Further details on Allison Road will be available early 2016.

so the allison road kickstarter is cancelled, nearly giving this horror blog owner a heart attack before he frantically googled details.

turns out the developers have partnered up with dev/publisher team17 to fund everyone’s favorite future p.t. replacement. so no worries, the game is funded, everyone who donated keeps their money, and everything is fine until konami buys up team17 and cancels it. ᕕ(ᐛ)ᕗ

hey all !!
first off i really appreciate and love all the very kind messages. i read and respond to each and every one ❤ ❤  however i also figured i should answer some common questions:

1. Is this a game?
Yes! WTTW is a third person adventure game.

2. What platforms is WTTW on?

Currently PC, however i’m also really gunning for console as well. 

3. When will it come out !?
I can’t say for sure! We haven’t begun the whole indie game funding trip yet but that will be happening soon. The release of the game will depend on that!

edit: the super wonderful team17 picked us up - it’ll come eventually.

4. Is WTTW randomly generated?
This gets asked a lot strangely! Way To The Woods is lovingly hand crafted :)

5. What programs are you using?
WTTW is being developed in Unreal Engine 4. I use Maya, Zbrush, and Photoshop to do the art. I love talking about this so if you have specific questions you may ask!

6. What are your inspirations?
I LOVE LOVE Life is Strange, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, The Last of Us, and a whole heap of other cool stuff.

have a great day and keep being amazing!
