Blackwood Crossing to Launch Early in 2017 - December 30, 2016
Blackwood Crossing is the first major release from PaperSeven, an indie studio based in Brighton, England. The team is made up of former Disney Black Rock Studio developers, as well as Oliver Reid-Smith, writer of The Room.
The story-driven first-person adventure game explores the relationship between orphaned siblings Scarlett and Finn, who are growing apart as Scarlett comes of age. This relationship is at the core of Blackwood Crossing.
After the siblings cross paths with a mysterious figure, a seemingly ordinary train ride evolves into a magical story of life, love and loss. Players assume the role of Scarlett, exploring ever-changing surroundings and solving a range of challenging puzzles as she tries to navigate her way through the unpredictable world around her.
Alice Guy, co-founder, PaperSeven: We’re thrilled to see Blackwood Crossing finally hit the stores, and hope players feel as connected to Finn and Scarlett’s story as we do. Our goal was to build a world with a unique character, a world grounded in surreal magic that confounds player expectations. We wanted to create a dreamlike logic, where fantastical events make perfect sense within the context of the game.
