Brighton-based studio PaperSeven reveals story-driven adventure game as their first major release
Brighton-based independent studio PaperSeven today announced a new story-driven adventure game, Blackwood Crossing, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2016. The team at PaperSeven developing the game is made up of former Disney Black Rock Studio developers, as well as Oliver Reid-Smith, writer of The Room.
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.”
The soundtrack though - Best I have heard in a LONG time. Graphics are pretty good too. (23 minutes ago)
So many things happen and half the time, you dont know what on earth they are talking about.. I didnt see the movie nor watch the animated shorts... was I supposed to... (25 minutes ago)
let's call it control responsiveness. (26 minutes ago)
I am not sure input lag is the correct term for what I want to say.... I think it's an animation issue where you push the stick forward but it takes Noctis a good couple fo seconds to start moving.... (27 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: It's actually the only FF I've completed, but it's not my favourite FF story at all. (29 minutes ago)
Combat is mess, story is a mess, and dont get me started with the input lag and the stupid animation decisions... geez! (30 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: Ardyn as an antagonist just straight sucks. He says a whole lot of things without actually saying anything. I still wanna go back and do all the harder dungeons but I'll wait till later. (31 minutes ago)
