The Town Of Light Announced For PS4 And Xbox One

Wired Productions announced that the award-winning psychological adventure The Town of Light is coming to PS4 and Xbox One. Originally released for PC in early 2016, this new release of The Town of Light is an enhanced edition of the original. An improved PC version is also in the works.

The enchanced version of Town of Light offers 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.

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.

The Town of Light releases in Q2 2017.
