PaperSeven, based in Brighton, have released a trailer for their upcoming adventure game, Blackwood Crossing. Blackwood crossing is coming to the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC via the Steam digital distribution service. What fans can expect from Blackwood Crossing is a first person, story driven, adventure. The story explores the lives of siblings Scarlett and Finn- orphans who are at different stages of life. The trailer is available after the jump.
“This is our first original game since forming PaperSeven and we are immensely proud to be announcing it” said Alice Guy, co-founder of PaperSeven. “There’s been some fantastic narrative adventure games coming out in recent times – we’re hoping to take a place at this table whilst offering something different to what’s come before. Blackwood Crossing is evidence of our desire to explore experiences with depth and meaning, and create characters that challenge the often clichéd gaming landscape.”
As you read above, this is the first game for PaperSeven and it is quite a strikingly unique take on the adventure genre. The take on childhood, coming of age and general changes in our lives as we grow older are all things explored in Blackwood Crossing. Some of the characters are weird, like that rabbit head wearing guy on the train- or those wearing masks of some kind. Blackwood Crossing is definitely going for the unique aspect and working it hard as evidenced in the trailer above.
I am personally a big fan of adventure games and will probably be picking this one up eventually. The visuals are clean yet surreal and well, the story is one that probably speaks to each person reading this in a different manner. Fans of adventure games will want to take notice on this one.
