Another Sight Gets a Video Discussing Its Two Protagonists


Developer Lunar Great Wall Studios shared another video giving insight into the upcoming narrative-driven game Another Sight. This one focuses on the main protagonists in the game, a little girl named Kit and the cat named Hodge that she meets while lost in the Underworld beneath a Victorian London after losing her sight.

In the video, the developers discuss the two perspectives that players will get in Another Sight. As Hodge, they will see everything in an extremely realistic way as opposed to Kit’s perspective, who perceives everything quite differently due to her blindness. In a previous video, the developers discussed how Kit’s world was visually inspired by work from the Impressionism movement and will be impacted by the important historical figures she will meet. Instead of sight, Kit will rely more on sound to make her way through the Underworld.

The developers go on to say that they decided to introduce a gameplay logic in which Kit can only run and jump if she can perceive her environment through sound and the bubble of light it will create for her. To help Kit know where to go, Hodge can guide her through the use of meowing a path to safety, creating a bond of mutual aid between the two characters. With the two point of views of the different characters, players will solve puzzles that will rely on both characters’ perceptions.

You can check out the video introducing Kit and Hodge below. Inspired by the novel Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, Another Sight will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC later this year.

Overview Trailer Shared for the Surreal Fantasy Game Another Sight


Lunar Great Wall Studios shared a video giving an overview of Another Sight, an emotional narrative-driven game that explores an area below the streets of London during the Victorian Era and will feature highly creative gameplay.

Another Sight follows the main character named Katherine after she has lost her sight due to an accident and begins a visionary journey of exploration and discovery with a cat named Hodge. The game’s setting was inspired by the magical and dangerous place of London Below in the fantastic novel Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.

Marco Ponte, CEO and Founder of Lunar Great Wall Studios, explains how he considered how a blind person would visualize a situation through sound and also found inspiration from the emotional aspects in work from the Impressionism movement. Creative Director Andrea Basilio also adds that real historical figures such as Claude Monet and Nikola Tesla have been added to the game, and they remain true to how they were during their lifetimes. Each encounter with one of these people will visually impact the world around Katherine.

Another Sight will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC later this year. You can watch the overview of the game below.
