The Town of Light is a first-person psychological experience with locations and characters inspired by real events, made by the independent studio Lka.it.
Our goal is to recreate the experiences, the anguish and the human drama of patients living in mental institutions up to the end of the last century: both the pain of mental disease and the horrors patients underwent within the walls of the institutions where they were being “treated”.
Our story takes place in one of the biggest asylums that ever existed in Italy, which counted more than 5000 internees at one time and was located in the city of Volterra: an asylum with a most controversial though little known history.

We faithfully recreate a notorious area of this asylum, that included two pavilions called Charcot and Ferri, by carrying out “authorized” inspections on the abandoned site and by gathering the testimony of former patients, doctors and nurses.
We have been working on this discreetly for almost a year; we plan on releasing a first demo for Win, Mac, Linux compatible with Oculus Rift before the end of the year.

Il nostro obbiettivo è quello di ricreare per il giocatore, le esperienze, le angosce, i drammi che fino alla fine del secolo scorso venivano vissuti dai pazienti ricoverati nei manicomi, il disagio della malattia mentale e gli orrori delle istituzioni totali che la “trattavano”.
La nostra storia in particolare è ambientata in uno dei più grandi manicomi esistiti in Italia, che arrivò a contare fino a 5000 internati, situato nella città di Volterra; istituzione dalla storia controversa e poco nota.

Stiamo ricreando fedelmente una delle zone più tristemente note di questo sanatorio, comprendente i padiglioni Charcot e Ferri, non solo con visite “autorizzate” sul posto, ormai abbandonato, ma anche documentandoci attrraverso varie testimonianze di ex pazienti, dottori e infermieri.
Lavoriamo a questo titolo da circa un anno in modo riservato; contiamo di rilasciare una prima demo entro la fine del 2013 per Win, Mac, Linux compatibile con Oculus Rift.
