Allison Road – Kickstarter Update
Hi all, we have news!
First some bad news but then some AMAZINGLY good news.
We have decided to withdraw the Kickstarter campaign to allow us to commit 100% to an opportunity that will give us the chance as a team to create the best game possible.
As a newly founded studio, we’ve been completely overwhelmed by your encouragement and huge interest in Allison Road and we’d love to thank each and every one of you for all of the amazing support you have given us during our Kickstarter campaign and beyond. Really incredibly appreciated.
And now the good news, in fact it’s AMAZING news!
We are delighted to announce that we will be joining Team17’s highly successful games label.
If you don’t know who Team17 are, they are most known for their Worms franchise, however, they run a fully independent games label. For us it’s an incredible opportunity to be part of a label that looks after not only such a massive gaming franchise, but also supports developers like Playtonic,Mouldy Toof and many others.

/// Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Entire Campaign is Unlocked From the Start!
“The mentality is really that this is your content. You’ve paid for it. This is your content, and you should be able to access any of it however you want. Hopefully this can open up campaign and storytelling to the audience who maybe would put it down for a second and then struggle to get back in again.”

/// Supermassive Games “Not Ruling Out” Until Dawn DLC, No VR Edition Planned!
In an exclusive interview set to be published later this week, Executive Producer Pete Samuels admitted that rolling out DLC for Until Dawn is difficult due to the “truths” in the game’s story, but they’re not ruling it out completely.
The underlying ‘truths’ in the story are pretty sacred. If an expansion of any kind required us to change a truth then we wouldn’t be happy doing it. We get asked a lot for a happy-ending for one character in particular. We can’t see how that could work without breaking some important truths. I’m not ruling out DLC, we just haven’t yet found the right context for it.
