Launched yesterday by indie developer Lilith on crowd funding site Kickstarter, was virtual reality (VR) survival horror title Allison Rd. The videogame which has already been Greenlit on Steam earlier this year, features support for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).
Allison Road is a first-person videogame being developed in Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4. Set in the quiet suburbs of Manchester, UK, players are cast as an unnamed protagonist that wakes up in a mysterious house with no memory. This character then tries to find out more about themselves in an attempt to locate their family and face the dark entities roaming the house, such as one named Lily.
Lilith is looking to raise £250,000 GBP to help fund the title. The campaign has already seen a positive start from the Kickstarter community with £52,390 GBP raised from 1,527 backers in just over 24 hours. Obviously there are a lot of survival horror fans out there as Allison Rd only took 48 hours to be Greenlit on Steam.
Originally Allison Road was created and developed by Chris Kesler, but he has since grown the team to include 6 developers, and the formation of Lilith Ltd. VRFocus will continue to follow the progress of Lilith Ltd and Allison Road during its Kickstarter campaign, reporting back any further updates.
