Techland Publishing has announced that Arise: A Simple Story is now available as a digital download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Epic Games Store for $19.99. This platform adventure game is the first game to ever be released by Barcelona-based developer Piccolo Studio.
Arise invites players to take the first step on a journey into the afterlife. The game is a heartfelt tale of an old man’s life, interwoven with love and loss, through the symbolic landscapes of his memories and a unique traversal mechanic that allows players to manipulate time in single-player or light cooperative play.
The game includes an emotional soundtrack composed by BAFTA award-winning composer David García.
“Arise is a deep narrative, carefully crafted to transcend both the literal and metaphorical. We travel together with an old man across artistically stunning landscapes, each of which represents a crucially poignant moment of his life, lush with love and loss,” said Alexis Corominas, one of the founders of Piccolo.
“We hope players will find themselves walking alongside him on a path of self-reflection, and, with each step, relate to the heartfelt magic in his story. We can’t wait for the players to discover what—or whom—they and the old man will find throughout the journey.”
