Alas more bad news for the horror genre. Studio Lilith Ltd revealed over the weekend that their P.T. inspired Allison Road horror game has been cancelled:

As the tweet implies, the developer should make a more official statement over the next few days. All we can do for the time being is wait and see.

For those who have not heard of Allison Road, it was a P.T. inspired game that was launched on Kickstarter late last year, after Konami pulled the plug on P.T./Silent Hills and subsequently wiping P.T. from Sony’s servers to ensure no one can re-download it. Nine days before the end of the Kickstarter campaign, Lilith Ltd ditched the crowdsourcing solution and took a deal with publisher Team17 in order to have the game completed.

My guess at this point is as good as anyone as to why it was canned. Maybe a conflict between publisher and developer? Or something else entirely?

Hopefully, we’ll get the answer sooner rather than later.
