Developers, LKA.it, today announced their debut game, ‘The Town of Light’, has officially launched on Steam at the promotional price of £12.45, which also includes the soundtrack, a digital artbook and the full digital diary of Renee, the game’s protagonist.
Winner of the indie DB editor’s choice 2015 for “best visual” and finalist at Game Connection Paris 2014 for best narrative, The Town of Light is a first-person psychological thriller set in the Volterra Psychiatric Asylum. The asylum was shut down in the late 1970’s by a law from the Italian government which instructed all asylums to close completely and give back patients their civil rights.
Inspired by a real event and is set inside one of Europes biggest Asylums – Volterra, The Town Of Light is played through the fictional eyes of Renée, an imaginary 16-year-old girl that suffers from the symptoms of mental illness. She is looking to find what’s happened to her in the past, exploring the place where she spent most of her youth.
Luca Dalco, Creative Director for LKA, it had the following to say,

The Town Of Light is available now on STEAM for £12.45 and will be coming to the Xbox One later in 2016.
