Interactive Drama 1979 Revolution: Black Friday Coming to Xbox One
Indie publishing label Digerati has announced that it’s bringing 1979 Revolution: Black Friday, a story-driven adventure, to Xbox One. The release date is currently scheduled for spring 2018.
Created by iNK Stories, the entertainment studio co-founded by Rockstar Games alumni Navid Khonsari, 1979 Revolution: Black Friday immerses players in the turbulent real-world events of the Iranian uprising.
1979 Revolution: Black Friday is written and directed by Navid Khonsari, a game development veteran who has worked on a lengthy list of best-sellers, including GTA: Vice City, Alan Wake and Resident Evil 7.
Khonsari grew up in Iran but left with his family after the revolution. Regarded by Iranian officials as ‘pro-American propaganda’, sales of the game have been banned in the country and Khonsari has been accused of being a U.S. spy. You can check out a trailer for the game below:
