Brighton-based independent studio PaperSeven announced today a new story-driven adventure game, Blackwood Crossing, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2016.

Check out the awesome teaser trailer of Blackwood Crossing:
Blackwood Crossing is a story-driven first-person adventure game exploring the relationship between Scarlett and Finn, orphaned siblings growing apart as Scarlett is coming of age and leaving childhood behind. When they cross paths with a mysterious figure, a seemingly ordinary train ride evolves into a magical story of life, love and loss.
“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.”
PaperSeven is a small, independent studio based in Brighton, UK. Founded by former Disney Black Rock Studio developers, the team’s goal is to create games that explore emotional themes and take players on meaningful yet unpredictable journeys. Currently PaperSeven is working on Blackwood Crossing, a story-driven adventure game launching on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2016.
The core team of PaperSeven set up the studio in 2011 after leaving AAA games developer Black Rock Studio. There are 14 of them now in the studio – a great mix of senior, experienced talent, and those who are just beginning their careers within this wonderful industry.
Blackwood Crossing will be published by Vision Games Publishing.
