Allison Road Leaves Kickstarter and Picked Up by Team17

Posted on October 13, 2015 by Kenny Keelan

In kind of a quirky turn of events, studio Team17 has decided to back the indie game Allison Road, which looks to pick up where PTs seems to have left off. This may be a good run for the studio who has been known, for quite some time, now, as the studio well known for the Worms franchise – a Scorched Earth spinoff that featured worms and lasted way, way, way too long – as they’ve also backed Yooka-Laylee and seem to want an identity away from that.

However, no one would ever mention Team 17’s algebraic trajectile strategy franchise, or better known as the Worms series; a franchise with more than a dozen titles to its name on everything from the Amiga to the Xbox 360. Truthfully, the only reason that people often forget about Worms is the fact that the franchise hasn’t made a successful impact to the gaming scene since Worms: Armageddon in 1998. For years, the blokes at Team 17 have been grasping at straws to return to that gold standard, and this year’s attempt comes in the form of Worms: Revolution, with a name that should invoke promises of a radical shift to the franchise which it does, and does not.Read More
