Video: Urban exploration meets psychological horror in The Town of Light

La donna  terrificante.

The Town of Light has a spooky doll in it - an inclusion that, ordinarily, would point fairly strongly toward a generic experience. However, having made my way through a twenty minute demo, I can safely say that The Town of Light is something a little bit different.

Set inside a faithful recreation of the infamous and now long-abandoned Volterra Psychiatric Hospital in Italy, The Town of Light is part urban exploration, part psychological thriller. Imagine Gone Home took place in a crumbling ruin full of grim medical documents and rusty wheelchairs and you'll be on the right track.

Check out the video below to see the game in action while I ruin the immersion by blabbering my first impressions over the top of it.
