The game, launching for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, will be an adventure title with a strong narrative component. They are worked hard along with Oliver Reid-Smith, author of The Room.
Blackwood Crossing will be a narrative first-person adventure that explores the relationship between Scarlett and Finn, orphaned siblings to be diverged when Scarlett reaches the age of maturity and leaves childhood behind. When their paths cross with a mysterious figure, “a seemingly ordinary train ride evolves into a magical story of life, love and loss.”
“This is our first original game since forming PaperSeven and we are immensely proud to be announcing it,” said Alice Guy, cofounder of PaperSeven. “There’s been some fantastic narrative adventure games coming out in recent times – we’re hoping to take a place at this table whilst offering something different to what’s come before. Blackwood Crossing is evidence of our desire to explore experiences with depth and meaning, and create characters that challenge the often clichéd gaming landscape.”
