Wired Productions and LKA were excited to announce a publishing agreement to bring LKA.it’s award-winning psychological adventure, The Town of Light, to consoles and PC. This version, marking its debut on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q2 2017, will offer up fresh, story-supporting content and quite a few enhancements.
Some of these include new puzzles, additional story elements, reworked voiceover dialogue, more interactive elements, and even a huge graphical and UI overhaul that delivers a more polished and immersive experience. Check out the new trailer below:
For those unaware, The Town of Light is a first-person, psychological story-driven adventure game set in the Volterra Psychiatric Asylum; A former mental treatment facility based in Tuscany, Italy. It had been shut down in the late 1970s due to an Italian law that instructed all asylums to completely close and give back patients their civil rights.
You take on the role of the 16-year-old Renée, who suffers from symptoms of mental illness. She is searching for answers to many questions from her past, exploring and uncovering the place in which she spent the majority of her youth. The lines of interactive entertainment, storytelling, and reality frequently blur in the dark and emotional journey that follows.
Luca Dalcò, Creative Director at LKA.it, stated, “Thanks to their passion for the game and Renee’s story, we are immensely proud to bring The Town of Light to console audiences together with Wired Productions. It has been a long journey and our experience developing the PC version allowed us to learn a lot. Those learnings and the warm community feedback were instrumental in creating the enhanced version of the game we are developing.”
“We followed the progress of The Town of Light since its first showcase in 2014, and we are really excited to work with Luca and his team to bring this very special experience to console,” added Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions. “The merging of real events and places with a powerful and an often uncomfortable storyline makes for a compelling combination.”
