Fans Are Making A Spiritual Successor To P.T., And It Looks Terrifying

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 -- the game sounds 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:

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.

    I hate horror games. But hats off to these guys, it looks amazing

      Same. Will never play it, but good on them for making it

    I feel like this was announced months ago?

    Very well done. I'm hopeful this will do a decent job filling the void left behind by P.T.

    Looks very cool. Hopefully they improve or get rid of his dialogue though, seems weird he has internal dialogue for needing an aspirin, looking at a phone etc., but then doesn't say HOLYFUCKINGSHIT when he see's a freaky looking girl or blood draining from the walls. Or makes no comment when a door that was locked a minute ago is unlocked itself etc.

    I reckon get rid of the dialogue all together and leave us with our own.

    Oh wow. Looks impressive. I hate these games with a passion because they make me whimper like a little girl. But there is always that need to play them just to experience the dread and terror.

    The art design is incredible, almost photorealistic and feels very lived in (albeit very grotty people live there).

    I skimmed through most of it and I still got freaked out by the ending.

    Just played pt at a mates last week (bless him for downloading it). Man that was the most legit horror game I've ever played, constantly lamenting it's demise and praising it's ambition and execution. Konami (sigh).

    Love the test pattern on the TV. Haven't seen one of those in years.

    But I won't be playing this. Nope - I like my entertainment a little tamer.
