Unless you've played the Virginia demo you haven't had much to go on - until now. Now there's a cinematic trailer providing a first proper look at the game in motion, and at stuff not in the demo, too. Looks nice doesn't it?

Virginia is the first-person thriller we're rather excited about. And it's not far off, due 22nd September on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

It's Firewatch meets Twin Peaks, with dashes of Thirty Flights of Loving here and dollops of Gone Home there. It's a detective thriller in 90's mid-Atlantic America, in which you, as FBI agent Anne Traver, must track down missing person Lucas Fairfax.

"Virginia is absolutely sublime," wrote Martin in a Virginia preview just last month. "[Developer] Variable State could be onto something special here, a smart narrative adventure that in its own way redefines what the term cinematic means for video games."
