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

- We want to recreate as faithful as possible all the vegetation that surround the building, here are some images rappresenting the ivy we added this week.

- We are working on a new localization system in order to allow the community to help us translate "The Town of Light" in all possible languages!
If you are interested contact us at info[at]thetownoflight[dot]com!

- We did a major upgrade to optimize graphics and audio management.

- The work continues ceaselessly to enrich the environments of the game and the works on characters that will have a major role in the story of Renee, below a video of the first sculpting of Doriden.

And one of the concept for Renèe, our main character.

Thanks for your support, keep track of the project and follow us on our website:
