Forget Konami. We have Allison Road, a new horror game that is heavily inspired by the Silent Hills demo.
Here’s how the developers describe it, with the game sounding like a mix between Silent Hills and Five Nights at Freddy’s, weirdly enough:
You will take on the role of the unnamed protagonist who wakes up one day without any recollection of prior events.
Over the course of five nights, it is your objective to uncover the whereabouts of your family, unravel the mysteries of the house, and face off against [dark entities] that are nested deep within the house, while the clock is relentlessly ticking towards 3:00am.
What would you do if you could feel something stalking you in the dark in the safety of your own home?
If you couldn’t tell what’s real and what’s not?
Best of all, you can see Allison Road in action right now. Here are 13 minutes of straight gameplay:
The influences are probably obvious. Allison Road takes great care in rendering an actual house, which means photorealism, along with attention to detail when it comes to even the smallest domestic minutia. It’s an aesthetic Silent Hills nailed so well that just walking around in this new house is automatically kind of scary. You know there’s more here than meets the eye. But what?
Some notable things from the gameplay clip...
Allison Road wears its inspiration on its sleeve. Here’s an item with the phrase “dad was such a drag,” something which is said in P.T:
There’s even a PlayStation controller:
The environments look stunning:
Though it’s obvious SOMEthing is going on in this house...
You can pick things up and interact with stuff in your environment:
Or simply to inspect further:
There’s even an inventory system.
And yes, Allison Road will have its own demon girl:
While the footage is pre-alpha right now, and the developers note that what you see in the game won’t be in the full version, it’s already looking pretty good. I’m looking forward to seeing more.
