Techland Publishing has recently announced the beautiful and deeply moving adventure game Arise: A Simple Story, developed by Barcelona-based studio Piccolo. Today, the game gets a release date: December 3rd.
For those not in the know, Arise: A Simple Story is an emotional journey through the life of two people where memories come alive and time bends to the player’s will. Each chapter represents a specific turning point in a man’s long life filled with relatable moments of joy and sorrow. Arise’s heartwarming love story will have players experience diverse powerful emotions – both the protagonist’s and their own.
The simple yet effective story of Arise: A Simple Story
Your journey begins, as our protagonist’s life ends, in limbo. Relive crucial events of his life as you make your way towards the mesmerizing light beckoning from a mountaintop, using your newfound gift of time manipulation to help you overcome many obstacles along the way.
“Arise is an emotional journey through a lifetime full of bliss and sorrow, ultimately a tale everyone can relate to. It allows you to explore the many seasons of life illustrated by evocative environments, and relive memories with the help of a unique time manipulation gameplay mechanic. Our goal is to let players reminisce and reflect on their own lives as they progress through the story,” said Alexis Corominas, one of the founders of Piccolo.
Those who wish to experience a moving adventure can pre-order Arise and enjoy a digital soundtrack composed by David García, whose work on Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was awarded a BAFTA award in Audio Achievement and a nomination in the Best Music category. Now, players can discover Arise’s heartfelt magic as García’s soulful music brings memories to life.
Arise: A Simple Story will be released digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store.
