Independent developer LKA.it has revealed that The Town of Light will be debut on Xbox One later this year via the ID@XBOX self publish program.

This indie title is a first-person psychological thriller set in the Volterra Psychiatric Asylum. The asylum was shut down in the late 1970’s by the Italian government which instructed all asylums to close completely and give back patients their civil rights.

Based on extensive research and real facts, the game tells the story of Renée; a young imaginary 16-year-old girl suffering from the symptoms of mental illness. She is looking to find out what happened to her. To get a headstart, you can read her diary.
