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.”

I love the game's artstyle. And the Silence of the Lambs reference, huh.

The framerate was insufferable in the video, though, hopefully it's just some temporary issue and the game is well optimized.

Nowhere near as creepy as Donnie Darko's Frank. Reminds me more of a Laplace demon from Rozen Maiden, suit and all.
Or maybe this fella, on the creepy end of scales:

Looks right up my alley. Sounds like they're orphans?

Extremely unoriginal and poor frame rate.

    MrWhite Every single racing sim, or flight sim, or most other sims, from here on out should have a VR mode mandatory from day one. (3 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @KORNdog: Yeah, I'm curious to see what the exclusives will be like also. The ability to practically be able to play anywhere on any device with a good internet connection is quite intriging. (7 Hours ago)
