    Renée Unmasked

    Luca Dalcò, the studio head at developer LKA.it and screenwriter for The Town of Light, went on camera to talk about the game’s protagonist Renée. The video gives you a glimpse into her creation and helps you to understand what she meant to the team.

    When creating Renée, LKA tried to imagine what the protagonist could feel and built up her story with immense detail, as if she were a real person. They produced hundreds of pages documenting her story to show and understand ourselves how she looks, how she acts and how she feels.

    The Town of Light Wins at The Golden Dragon Awards

    Last night at The Golden Dragon Awards in Italy, we were very proud and honoured for The Town of Light to win Best Artistic Achievement!

    This is a great moment for the team at LKA, who have poured their hearts into the story of Renée.

Work first started back in 2014, with screenwriter and art and technical director Luca Dalcò spending months researching the issues the title deals with.

The visuals and art of The Town of Light play a huge role in creating the emotion and the atmosphere. Through this, you...

    Wired heads into The Town of Light

    This week we were delighted to announce that we've teamed up with LKA.it to bring the haunting title, The Town of Light, to Xbox One and PS4.

    The Town of Light is a first-person psychological adventure game set in the Volterra Psychiatric Asylum. It's a game that we have played for the past year. It's haunting, difficult to stomach at moments - with the only horror being the truth behind the story. Although Renee is fictional, her struggles, her ordeals, her pain, are all based on extensive research into both patient accounts and well documented medical practices. History is filled with some shocking moments where we, as humans, through ignorance, misunderstanding or lack of compassion made deplorable decisions. The Town of Light forces you to discover that truth. It's a game that...
