Allison Road creator says it's back in development after parting with publisher

Just when you thought it was safe to walk down the hallway, Allison Road has returned. The P.T.-inspired horror game was canceled back in June (opens in new tab), but creator Christian Kesler announced on Facebook (opens in new tab) today that he's returned to the project despite parting ways with former publisher Team 17.

After announcing its cancellation, Kesler said he spent some time away from Allison Road. When he returned, he "started making a few changes to the story, a few scribbles here and there, some layout tests and before [he] knew it it sort of organically picked up pace." He thanked fans for sticking with the project months after its apparent demise and promised more frequent updates in the future. Though he did note that - given how it's back to just him working on the game all by himself - "this might take a while".

We'll see if Allison Road returns to Kickstarter or similar crowdfunding platforms; its first campaign was canceled when Team 17 picked up the project. However Kesler manages it, hopefully he takes all the time he needs to deliver on the promise of that freaky first demo (opens in new tab) (and the truly dead-and-gone P.T./Silent Hills).
