Following a new update on the Kickstarter page, Lilith, the team behind "Allison Road," has cancelled the crowdfunding for the game and turned to publisher Team17.
Lilith posted what the plan is now with "Allison Road" being published by Team17:
Hi all, we have news!
First some bad news but then some AMAZINGLY good news.
We have decided to withdraw the Kickstarter campaign to allow us to commit 100% to an opportunity that will give us the chance as a team to create the best game possible.
As a newly founded studio, we’ve been completely overwhelmed by your encouragement and huge interest in Allison Road and we’d love to thank each and every one of you for all of the amazing support you have given us during our Kickstarter campaign and beyond. Really incredibly appreciated.
And now the good news, in fact it’s AMAZING news!
We are delighted to announce that we will be joining Team17’s highly successful games label.
If you don’t know who Team17 are, they are most known for their Worms franchise, however, they run a fully independent games label. For us it’s an incredible opportunity to be part of a label that looks after not only such a massive gaming franchise, but also supports developers like Playtonic,Mouldy Toof and many others.
Working with Team17 will give us the chance to make our game unhindered creatively, but at the same time will give us the resources, support and experience that only a 25 year old studio can give.
For all of you that have pledged already for in game rewards, we absolutely promise you that we will look at ways outside of Kickstarter that will allow you to be involved in the game at a later date.
We will be going very quiet for a while as we focus on making Allison Road the best horror experience it possibly can be but do please follow us and Team17 on @Lillithltd & @AllisonRoad_HQ and @team17Ltd for future news.
Oh and on a side note. If you'd like to support other cool projects that are currently going on, please have a look at these; they are really awesome and I'm sure they'd appreciate it! :)
When "Allison Road" is expected to release isn't known, as it's still early in development. "Allison Road" follows the cancelled "Silent Hills" after reports of a fallout between Hideo Kojima, one of the big names behind the past project, and publisher Konami.
