IGN adds that Kesler stated, "I'm actually really happy to be able to announce that [Allison Road] will continue," emphasizing that he is ans will always be passionate about the project since day one. "We had a lot of support online and some folks out there are just incredibly nice.", Kesler added.
Are you alone? This is the best time to check out the video!
It was back in July of 2015 when Allison Road first debuted, together with a 13-minute gameplay in pre-alpha development status. It boasted photo-realistic graphics set in a suburban home. The demo seems to echo the spook level of P.T., the Silent Hills playable teaser which was also abandoned.
Despite its fame, funding achievements, and Team17's partnership, Allison Road was abandoned in June 2016 with little details on why as shared by Kesler. After a setback, he took a short break from work, re-evaluated, and after a bit of 'soul searching', Kesler decided to revive to project as reported by IGN.
Kesler also stated that he did all the texture, models, shades, lighting, and whatnot for the gameplay trailer. He was thankful that a lot of the mechanic ground work was already built and he also is confident that he can take the game going forward by himself.
There are no words yet about the release date for Allison Road as well as the changes to it. We will update you as development for the game progresses.
