Surreal steampunk fantasy experiences always go down well in our book and that means the announcement of Another Sight from Lunar Great Wall Studios should ensure that another hotly anticipated game is on the horizon.
Announced by the Italian devs at Lunar Great Wall Studios, Another Sight is set to launch of Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC at some point in 2018.
A surreal dreamscape awaits as Another Sight takes you in to a steampunk adventure set in Victorian London. With heart, culture and character at the forefront of things, Another Sight will take us into the world of two leading characters: Kit, a refreshingly bold teenager, who loses her sight after the under-construction London Underground tunnel she was exploring collapses, and Hodge – a mysterious red-furred cat – she meets in darkness.
Teaming up for an adventure through the unexpected, with Hodge an essential companion upon whom Kit will come to rely on, you’ll get to explore a fantasy world by utilising using each of their unique talents to tackle environments and solve intriguing puzzles. Beneath London, in a world inspired by Neil Gaiman’s urban fantasy, Neverwhere, Kit and Hodge will encounter a hidden society of the world’s greatest inventors and artistic minds such as Claude Monet, Jules Verne and other long-past cultural icons.
Marco Ponte, CEO of Lunar Great Wall Studios said: “The world we’ve created for players to explore in Another Sight is so rich and engaging, filled with heart and discovery.” He continued, “We’re delighted to be showcasing Another Sight at GDC this year, and soon, we’ll be showcasing to the public. Another Sight represents our sentiments as a studio, that games should be emotive, with a unique and compelling experience born of cultural influences that provide different levels of meaning into the worlds we create.”
Another Sight features include:
- EMOTIVE DRIVEN – A story about a girl and her cat companion on a journey beyond sight and the real. A tale of warmth and intrigue is woven throughout the adventure, touching on trust, companionship and losing what we take for granted. Innovative gameplay and a story of heart is galvanized by a soundscape given life by a symphonic orchestra to accent memorable moments between Kit, Hodge and the journey they’re on.
- MASTERS OF THE PAST – Throughout the journey, Kit and Hodge will meet virtuoso artists such as Claude Monet and other cultural historical figures from the past, learning more about the world and dangers it presents. Each encounter visually impacts the world, taking on aesthetics of each creative movement from the famous characters Kit and Hodge meet.
- HIGHLY CREATIVE GAMEPLAY – Use the unique abilities of each character to help Kit and Hodge traverse the world and overcome environmental challenges. The two central characters can split up to investigate different areas of the locale that the other may not be able to reach, with both Kit and Hodge perceiving the world in very different ways, opening up different possibilities for overcoming their adventure.
Another Sight will be debuting at GDC this year. You’ll be able to find it in the South Hall at booth #1023. We’ll be sure to bring you more regarding it prior to the launch this year on Xbox One, Switch, PS4 and PC.
