    Remember P.T.? Y'know, the spooky Silent Hill teaser for the now-cancelled Silent Hill game? Well, Allison Road, the "spiritual successor" which was meant to deliver more P.T.-related horror-y goodness has also been cancelled, according to the Allison Road Twitter account. No details have been released on the reason why just yet, but the developers have promised to release a statement "in a few days".

    Allison Road had a promising start, especially after Konami had announced the cancellation of the newest Silent Hill game, with Team17 picking up the publisher rights after seeing a fairly successful Kickstarter campaign.

    It's a shame to see this go, too, I was really enamored with Allison Road and was quite interested in seeing how it stands up to the more recent "jump scare" horror titles released in the past few years. Personally, I'm hoping they release a dev build or something the community can enjoy, as it seems like they've made quite a bit of progress since releasing the initial prototype gameplay video.

    Welp.
    This should be intresting why they announce why. I'm not a huge fan of horror. But stuff like Silent Hill I like based on gameplay.

    The game's development is becoming more of a horror story than anything the game itself could be.

    Plot twist, Konami releases P.T as a Pachinko slot game.

    I think they're following P.T. too closely with this cancellation.

    Speaking of Norman reedus.

    Konami Lucille'd this IP. And the fans are not taking it like a champ.

    Hide your kids, lock the doors and BEHOLD!

    The CURSE of P.T.

    Anything even remotely associated with it, ends up being cancelled and never being heard from again! Do not think of developing it, do not even attempt to think it's name... and mostly... do not DEFY it's power!!

    Or you too, will be terminated..

    Plot Twist. Silent Hills released after all.

    "Playable Teaser", IIRC. It was a demo for an upcoming new Silent Hill game, called "Silent Hills", that was extremely well recieved by horror fans. Silent Hills was canceled. P.T. was removed from PS4 store.

    Are we sure this is real and that the Allison Road account wasn't hacked? I mean, look at how they wrote the message, "thx for the support and very sad it came 2 this", doesn't sound very professional.

    Oh, the one with Norman Reedus? Yeah, it pissed me off that they canceled that.

    So what is Alison Road, exactly? Another Silent Hill game, or something similar?

    At this point, I'd say let's just let this die. Yeah, it's only been a year and Konami has done
    Twitter messages are restricted to 140 characters. I copy and pasted the notice and it used up every character, so I think they wrote it the way they did to avoid make a second message.
