Italian indie developer LKA.it has announced their first title as The Town of Light, a first-person psychological thriller set in the Volterra Psychiatric Asylum which was closed in 1978. It's based off real accounts.
We play as Renee in the present as she goes back to uncover forgotten memories. The team has "carefully recreated" around 7,000 square meters of the actual asylum. It natively supports Oculus Rift.
"You do not know where you are, who you are and what’s going on. Are you imprisoned, or you are ill? One thing for sure is that you are alone in one of the creepiest place in the world often named – the place of no return," said Luca Dalcò, founder of the studio.
The Town of Light releases on PC in Fall 2015.
