The Town of Light is a first-person psychological experience with locations and characters inspired by real events. It's made by the independent studio Our goal is to recreate the experiences, the anguish and the human drama of patients living in mental institutions up to the end of the last century: both the pain of mental disease and the horrors patients underwent within the walls of the institutions where they were being “treated”. Our story takes place in one of the biggest asylums that ever existed in Italy, which counted more than 5000 internees at one time and was located in the city of Volterra: an asylum with a most controversial though little known history. We faithfully recreate a notorious area of this asylum, that included two pavilions called Charcot and Ferri, by carrying out “authorized” inspections on the abandoned site and by gathering the testimony of former patients, doctors and nurses

Don't believe this is using Unity. The quality is impressive at most. Great artistic direction, outstanding ilumination. It's turning very good. We're following this closely.
