Lunar Great Wall Studios has announced that Another Sight will release on Nintendo Switch, and will be playable at EGX Rezzed in London next week.
Set in 1899 towards the end of the Victorian era in London, the game, which has been built in Unreal Engine 4, will cast you as Kit, who loses her sight when a partly built London Underground tunnel that she was exploring collapses.
She teams up with Hodge, a mysterious red-furred cat that she meets in the darkness, to explore a surreal fantasy world beneath London that takes inspiration from Neil Gaiman’s first novel, Neverwhere.
That will see them discover a hidden society of the world’s greatest inventors and artistic minds such as Claude Monet, Jules Verne and other historic cultural icons.
“We’re excited to show the game to the public for the first time and showcase our vision for Another Sight: As you explore the world and meet notable figures from history, how Kit views the world changes, and morphs the world into something unique in video games,” explains Lunar Great Wall Studios creative director Andrea Basilio.
“Doing the first show in London is special because the city was one of the very early inspirations for the game.”
Another Sight will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2018.
