'Arise: A Simply Journey' Is A Beautiful Journey Through Limbo
Announced during today's State of Play was a beautiful looking adventure from developer Piccolo Studio titled Arise: A Simple Story.
The game begins as you are set-off upon a pyre. Usually an ending for a character, but just the start for Arise as you awake in limbo and soon beginning following a light you see off in the distance. The journey will take you through various locations and different designs inspired by the life of the character.
Alexis Corominas, the General Manager at Piccolo Studio said the following in the PS Blog post today:
"One of our goals with Arise was to make this odyssey memorable and constantly surprising. We turned our hero’s rich life experience into beautiful landscapes that will shift along with your emotional state, as you roam through varied environments that reflect the current tone of the narrative. As the story unfolds, your power to manipulate time also transforms to fit the moments you’re reliving."
The trailer — which you can watch below — that show's the various locations and the game certainly looks stunning. How the time manipulation will work and to what degree will certainly be interesting given the game will be able to do some unique things in limbo.
