The Long Reach, a psychological thriller adventure game done in classic pixel art developed by Painted Black Games, is coming to both the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita this autumn, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog by the game’s Development Lead Roman Tomilin.
Here’s a description of the game from Tomilin:
The game’s story takes place in the fictional American town of Baervox. More precisely, at a scientific research institute where a revolutionary accelerated knowledge transferring system is being developed.
If you hadn’t already guessed it, something has gone horribly wrong. The technology the scientists have been working on has cataclysmically malfunctioned and both the institute and the town have been effected and not in a good way! The surrounding area has been turned into a real nightmare and the experiment participants have transmuted into… well, we cannot tell you that for now, because we hate spoilers!
The main character, Stewart, is a junior researcher at the scientific research institute. Stewart’s just a regular guy who, under your control, will have to untangle the rapidly escalating situation. Stewart will need to show courage and intelligence to save the world and, most importantly, survive.
According to Tomilin, The Long Reach was initially conceived as a mobile game but the team, after remodeling the control system three times, eventually honed the controls for a gamepad which allowed them to now announce the PS4 and PS Vita release of the game.
As previously mentioned, The Long Reach will come out sometime in the fall/autumn of 2017 although no exact release date was announced. In the meantime, check out the game’s teaser trailer above.
