Want a new PT? You'd better back the Allison Road Kickstarter

You may remember that we're very excited about Allison Road, the unintentional spiritual successor to PT (i.e. the most gut-tighteningly terrifying horror game of all time). Made by a first-director and his new-found team, Lilith Ltd., the game aims to capture the uncanny realism of the Kojima-del Toro project while transplanting it into a more recognisable game template. And it needs your help.

Allison Road today begins a Kickstarter, aiming to raise a cool £250,000 to complete the project. It's definitely coming to PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One and PS4, but stretch goals will help ensure that the console versions come alongside the Winter 2016 release of the PC edition, instead of waiting months for porting to be completed.

It's certainly a lofty target, but the promise of a game that can recapture the chills of the now-ghostlike PT, and give us a full game in the process, might just be enough sway the public.
