Despite a failed Indiegogo campaign, indie developer has forged ahead with The Town of Light, a first-person psychological adventure that draws inspiration from real events and places. The game takes place in Volterra Psychiatric Asylum, one the biggest in Europe, which was shut down in 1978.

The game begins in the present. You follow Renee, a schizophrenic, as she returns to the asylum to find her long-forgotten memories. Her voice will guide you through the game. You will experience her fears and personal drama while exploring an environment full of real documents and locations.

Luca Dalcò, founder of “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…”

The Town of Light will be showcased at the UK’s Develop 2015. The game has been Greenlit and will be released for PC, Mac and Linux in Fall 2015.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
