Developer LKA.it has teamed up with publisher Wired Productions for an Enhanced version of their highly successful The Town Of Light. The game will release digitally and at retail for PS4 and Xbox One during Q2 2017. This new release will be accompanied by an improved PC version.
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.
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 who 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: 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.
“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,” said Luca Dalcò, Creative Director at LKA.it. “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.”
