Wired Productions and Developer LKA.it Announce Worldwide Publishing Agreement for Enhanced PC Version and Physical/Digital Console Releases


Watford, U.K. — January 19, 2017 — Wired Productions, an independent games publisher, is pleased to reveal today that it has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with talented Italian developer LKA.it to bring an updated version of the award-winning psychological adventure The Town of Light to consoles and PC. Offering fresh, story-supporting content and a myriad of enhancements to its original release, The Town of Light will make its retail debut on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft in Q2 2017, alongside an improved Windows PC version.

An enhanced edition of the original, this new release of The Town of Light will offer new puzzles, additional story elements, reworked voiceover dialogue, more interactive elements and a huge graphical and UI overhaul that aims to deliver a more polished and immersive experience. A new trailer was released today that highlights the game’s tone and narrative with supporting sentiments from press.

Winner of the indieDB Editor’s Choice 2015 award for “Best Visuals” and Game Connection Paris 2014 for “Best Narrative,” The Town of Light is a first-person, psychological story-driven adventure game set in the Volterra Psychiatric Asylum – a former mental treatment facility based in Tuscany, Italy. The asylum was shut down in the late 1970s due to an Italian law that instructed all asylums to close completely and give back patients their civil rights.

Based on extensive research and inspired by real facts, The Town of Light is played through the fictional eyes of Renée, a 16-year-old girl who suffers from the symptoms of mental illness. She is searching for answers to the many questions from her past, while she explores and uncovers the place where she spent most of her youth. What happens next is a dark and emotional journey where the lines of interactive entertainment, storytelling, and reality frequently tend to blur.

“Thanks to their passion for the game and Renee’s story, we are immensely proud to bring The Town of Light to console audiences together with Wired Productions,” said Luca Dalcò, Creative Director at LKA.it. “It has been a long journey and our experience developing the PC version allowed us to learn a lot. Those learnings and the warm community feedback were instrumental in creating the enhanced version of the game we are developing.”

“We followed the progress of The Town of Light since its first showcase in 2014, and we are really excited to work with Luca and his team to bring this very special experience to console,” added Leo Zullo, Managing Director at Wired Productions. “The merging of real events and places with a powerful and an often uncomfortable storyline makes for a compelling combination.”
