The Town of Light Coming to the Xbox One in 2017
Wired Productions has announced that it has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with Italian developer LKA.it to bring an updated version of the award-winning psychological adventure The Town of Light to consoles. Offering fresh, story-supporting content and a myriad of enhancements to its original release, The Town of Light will make its retail debut on the Xbox One in Q2 2017.
An enhanced edition of the original, this new release of The Town of Light will offer new puzzles, additional story elements, reworked voiceover dialogue, more interactive elements and a huge graphical and UI overhaul that aims to deliver a more polished and immersive experience.
So what are the deets of this game you ask? Winner of the indieDB Editor’s Choice 2015 award for “Best Visuals” and Game Connection Paris 2014 for “Best Narrative,” 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. The asylum was shut down in the late 1970s due to an Italian law that instructed all asylums to close completely and give back patients their civil rights.
Based on extensive research and inspired by real facts, The Town of Light is played through the fictional eyes of Renée, a 16-year-old girl who suffers from the symptoms of mental illness. She is searching for answers to the many questions from her past, while she explores and uncovers the place where she spent most of her youth. What happens next is a dark and emotional journey where the lines of interactive entertainment, storytelling, and reality frequently tend to blur.
We hope to have more coverage as the game gets close to release.
