PaperSeven, a studio formed by former Disney Black Rock Studio (Pure, Split/Second) developers, have announced a new narrative-focused adventure called Blackwood Crossing that’s heading to PC, PS4 and Xbox One this year. We’ve got to say we’re impressed by both the graphical quality and the artstyle on show in these screens and the trailer.
The story has been penned by The Room writer Oliver Reid-Smith, and below is an excerpt from the press information that should give you an idea of what the game is all about:
“Blackwood Crossing is a story-driven first-person adventure game exploring the relationship between Scarlett and Finn, orphaned siblings growing apart as Scarlett is coming of age and leaving childhood behind. When they cross paths with a mysterious figure, a seemingly ordinary train ride evolves into a magical story of life, love and loss.”
“This is our first original game since forming PaperSeven and we are immensely proud to be announcing it” said Alice Guy, co-founder of PaperSeven. “There’s been some fantastic narrative adventure games coming out in recent times – we’re hoping to take a place at this table whilst offering something different to what’s come before. Blackwood Crossing is evidence of our desire to explore experiences with depth and meaning, and create characters that challenge the often clichéd gaming landscape.”
