Coverage: Virginia

In the almost six months since we announced Virginia we’ve been hugely fortunate to receive a few mentions in the press. We were also lucky enough to appear at both EGX London and the Future of Storytelling event in New York, where we showed a small 15 minute demo of the game.

We’ve compiled a little digest of the coverage the game has seen since the original announcement, including a few hands-on impressions of our demo build!

Today we’re announcing Virginia, our debut game. It has its own little website and everything:

Virginia is an interactive drama set in the titular US state in the early 1990s. It charts the story of a recently graduated FBI agent and her partner as they seek to uncover the mystery surrounding the disappearance of a young boy.

“In the birthplace of America nothing is quite what it seems.”

Check below the link to see our first screenshot.
