Based on extensive research and inspired by real facts, The Town of Light is a first-person psychological story driven adventure game set in the Volterra Psychiatric Asylum.
12 March 1938. Renée, 16 years old, is ripped out of her world, locked up and deprived of everything. Her only fault was that she didn’t know what her place in the world was. “A danger to herself and others and a cause of public scandal” wrote the police headquarters. The only horror you will find in this game is the truth: a blow to the solar plexus, much more intense than any supernatural presence.
The story is set in Italy in the first half of the 20th Century in a place which really existed and has been meticulously reconstructed.
The Town of Light is a psychological adventure told in the first person and based in a place that really existed.
