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.

Blackwood Crossing is evidence of our desire to explore experiences with depth and meaning, and create characters that challenge the often clichéd gaming landscape.”
