Wired Productions announced that the award-winning psychological adventure The Town of Light is releasing on PS4, Xbox One and PC on the 6th of June.
The Town of Light was originally released for PC back in early 2016. This new release is an enchanced version of the original game, which 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.
Played through the fictional eyes of Renée, a 16-year-old girl who suffers from the symptoms of mental illness, players must search for answers to the many questions from her past while exploring and uncovering 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.
A live action trailer, featuring the heart-rending track 'I Will Find You' from Icelandic singer-songwriter Sóley, has been released alongside the release date announcement to highlight the story-driven game's reality-grounded premise, lending further insight into the fictional story of Renée. Set in the Volterra Psychiatric Asylum – a former mental treatment facility based in Tuscany, Italy – The Town of Light is based on extensive research and inspired by first-hand accounts of the asylum’s patients.
The Town of Light will be available in physical and digital formats for $19.99/€19.99/£15.99. Existing owners of the digital PC version will receive an update and acquire this enhanced release free of charge.
