    La Bambola

    Luca Dalcò discusses the symbolism behind Charlotte

    At a recent press event in Italy, we sat down with The Town of Light developer LKA.it to discuss ‘La Bambola’.

    In this new video, LKA.it studio head and screenwriter Luca Dalcò discusses the symbolism behind Charlotte, one of The Town of Light’s most intriguing characters.

    Far from the traditional ‘horror’ cliché that it appears, behind this weathered porcelain face lies not only deep significance for the game’s protagonist but a reflection of humanity itself.

    Wired Turns 9

    It’s our Birthday!

    Whoop! Today Wired turns 9!

    Back in 2008 Wired Productions started out as a production house and studio, developing the We Sing franchise for publishing giant, Nordic Games (Now THQ Nordic). We produced We Sing Rock, We Sing Pop!, We Sing Encore, We Sing Robbie Williams, We Sing Deutsche Hits, We Sing UK Hits and We Sing 80's! Our singing games were so successful we were tasked with producing the official game for The Voice as well as Los 40 Principales: Karaoke Party for the Official Los 40 Chart Show in Spain!

    9 years later and we have moved on from solely being a production house; we now search for great indie titles as a publisher to support! We started with the launch of Let’s Fish! Hooked On on the PS Vita. Following our fishing adventure we launched Last...

    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. 

    For the full story, please watch the video within this page or click here.

    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. LKA is a true independent Italian developer based in Florence, for such a big and emotional game, the team is only 5 strong. Work first started back in 2014, with screenwriter and art and technical director Luca Dalcò spending months researching the issues the title deals with. They painstakingly recreated the real-life Italian asylum, Volterra, which shut down in the 1970s and the game is a testament to their hard work and commitment. The visuals and art of The Town of Light play a huge role in creating the emotion and the atmosphere. Through this, you...

    9 DAYS TO BRO!

    There are 16 weapons to collect in four different categories. When starting a new game you will be given two weapons - a sword (Aegis of Incursion) and a crossbow (Pain Hailer).

    Each weapon has a varying degree of attack, defense and ultimate strength. Each weapon also has differences in attack patterns. For example one sword will have increased strength but will be heavy and take longer to attack, while another sword will be faster but have weaker attack strength.

    The different weapon classes also have different attack combos.

    Sword

    Light attack with 4 successive hits and the 5th hit will be a heavy attack.

    Hammer

    Light attack repeatedly up 5x combo and the heavy attack will increase in strength with each combo.

    Wand

    Buff other characters when hit by the weapon. Effects vary by...

    15 DAYS TO BRO!

    Wow!

    We're here! The finish line is in sight. Well... that's not actually true. For us, the starting line is in sight. We compare to sports here. Athletes spend years preparing, toning and conditioning their bodies for that one race. And for us, we certainly haven't been conditioning our bodies (KFC Fridays) but we have been working hard with developer React in creating a title that we are really proud of. So the finish line is not in sight, but that release date, that starting line, very much is!

    So what's going to happen when the klaxon blasts and the Bros are released into the wild? 

    Super Dungeon Bros has been designed as the perfect couch or online co-op. We want gamers to have fun. That's what the whole game is about. This might be stacking Axl, Freddie, Lars and Ozzie and...
