I hadn’t heard of the debut title from Italian indie developer, Lunar Great Wall Studios, until today but as soon as I heard the words ‘steampunk’ and ‘Victorian London’ I was interested. The game in question here is Another Sight which has burst into the spotlight with a reveal trailer. While the video doesn’t reveal much it does give a good impression of the tone of the game.
Here’s the official description of the game as well as the reveal trailer –
ANOTHER SIGHT is a surreal fantasy adventure with steampunk elements set in 1899 towards the end of the Victoria era, in London. Built on heart, culture and character, ANOTHER SIGHT brings to life our two leading characters: Kit, a refreshingly bold teenager, who loses her sight after the under-construction London Underground tunnel she was exploring collapses, and Hodge – a mysterious red-furred cat – she meets in darkness. Together, they team up for an adventure through the unexpected, with Hodge an essential companion upon whom Kit will come to rely on. Kit and Hodge explore a surreal fantasy world both together and apart, using each of their unique talents to tackle environments and solve intriguing puzzles. Beneath London, in a world inspired by Neil Gaiman’s urban fantasy, Neverwhere, Kit and Hodge encounter a hidden society of the world’s greatest inventors and artistic minds such as Claude Monet, Jules Verne and other long-past cultural icons.
