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.”
That gamasutra articles doesn't mention either MNC or DirtyBomb though. So I think we can agree that people tend to overlook gaps in the genre's history. This shit did not kick off with Battleborn/OW. (2 Hours ago)
OW and DirtyBomb are not MOBA-light games. They are team FPS games that have heroes. (2 Hours ago)
DirtyBomb did something that was at the time unique. You could not call it unique anymore. (2 Hours ago)
@Tinks: I know you think that. But they're not really the same genre. (2 Hours ago)
I could be wrong, but I think the first MNC really did just have classes and no overlapping roles. Think they added "pros" in the sequel. (2 Hours ago)
some lean more moba, or more tower defense, or more shooter, but I think everything we're talking about is connected (2 Hours ago)
Surely you can spot the differences. (2 Hours ago)
