Latest video from ANOTHER SIGHT explores character development and gameplay
Milan, Italy – August 9th, 2018 — As ANOTHER SIGHT approaches its launch date, the Italian developer behind the game, Lunar Great Wall Studios (https://www.lgwstudios.com) is delighted to share the latest behind-the-scenes video concerning the development of the game. This latest video discusses the advantages of having dual protagonists within the game as well as exploring the symbiotic relationship which develops between Kit and her mysterious cat companion, Hodge.
Marco Ponte, CEO and Founder of Lunar Great Wall commented: “Having two protagonists, one of whom is blind, has really opened up how we use not only the environments in the game, but also how the two characters interact. As the game is played, it is this relationship which drives forward the narrative of the game and provides increasingly diverse and challenging gameplay.”
Another Sight is launching later this year on Playstation 4, Xbox One Nintendo Switch and PC.
The Steam page for the game is now live and can be viewed here:
ANOTHER SIGHT is a surreal fantasy adventure with steampunk elements set in London in 1899, towards the end of the Victorian era. With an emphasis on culture and character, ANOTHER SIGHT focuses on the emotional development of the relationship between its two protagonists, Kit, a refreshingly intrepid teenager, and Hodge – a mysterious red-furred cat.
They meet in the darkness of a London Underground construction site, after Kit loses her sight when the tunnel she had been exploring collapses. They team up for an adventure into the unexpected, with Hodge proving himself to be an indispensable companion, upon whom Kit will come to rely. Kit and Hodge explore a surreal fantasy world, both together and separately, each using their own unique talents to make their way through compelling environments, and to solve intriguing puzzles.
Beneath London, in a world inspired by Neil Gaiman’s urban fantasy, Neverwhere, Kit and Hodge encounter a hidden society made up of the world’s greatest inventors and finest artistic minds, including Claude Monet, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison and other historical cultural icons.
Another Sight Gameplay Features:
EMOTIVE DRIVEN – A story about a girl and her cat companion on a journey beyond sight and the real. A tale of warmth and intrigue is woven throughout the adventure, touching on trust, companionship and losing what we take for granted. Innovative gameplay and a story of heart is galvanized by a soundscape given life to by a symphonic orchestra to accent memorable moments between Kit, Hodge and the journey they’re on.
MASTERS OF THE PAST - Throughout the journey, Kit and Hodge will meet virtuoso artists such as Claude Monet and other cultural historical figures from the past, learning more about the world and dangers it presents. Each encounter visually impacts the world, taking on aesthetics of each creative movement from the famous characters Kit and Hodge meet.
STORY WOVEN GAMEPLAY – Use the unique abilities of each character to help Kit and Hodge traverse the world and overcome environmental challenges. Kit and Hodge can split up to investigate different areas of the locale that the other may not be able to reach, with both Kit and Hodge perceiving the world in very different ways, opening up different possibilities for overcoming their adventure.
ANOTHER SIGHT launches in 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Founded in 2016 by CEO Marco Ponte, Lunar Great Wall Studios aims to combine expertise, creative talent and technology to create truly innovative, emotive games.
