Developer and publisher Wired Productions have released a new trailer for the psychological title, Town Of Light. Dubbed “Renée Unmasked,” the video features head honcho, Luca Dalcò, has he recounts the backstory of Renée, a 16-year-old girl condemned to a life of suffering, as he touches on the character’s creation, the game’s themes of mental illness, and the studio’s desire to bring a sensitive subject and a dark chapter of history to light using a medium in which these topics are rarely explored.

If you have yet to hear about Town Of Light, which is already available for PC, the game is set in Volterra Psychiatric Asylum – a former mental treatment facility based in Tuscany, Italy, where players experience the game through the fictional eyes of Renée, a 16-year-old girl who suffers from the symptoms of mental illness, players must search for answers to the many questions from Renée’s past while exploring and uncovering the place where she spent most of her youth.

An enhanced edition of the original is currently in the works which will offer new puzzles, additional story elements, reworked voiceover dialogue, more interactive elements along with a huge graphical and UI overhaul that aims to deliver a more polished and immersive experience.

The aforementioned enhanced edition is set for a release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime this spring. Existing owners of the digital Windows PC version will receive this update free of charge.
