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 become immersed within the story of Renée and to win an award for the art of The Town of Light means a tremendous amount to the team.
