Blackwood Crossing: Another Little Indie Number Out Next Month
Games fall from the sky regularly in gaming land. They come in many form’s, and seem to be never ending in their abundance. Yet one of the most well received styles of gaming as of late is the indie game, which is a title created by a struggling little company with no real money to their name. One such title worth checking out is Blackwood Crossing, a little indie number that’s going to arrive on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, this coming April.
It’s nothing super fancy, as is to be expected, however it seems emotionally driven and crafted beautifully. The game, as you’ll see below, concentrates on Scarlett – a 14 year old girl – whom, with her younger brother Finn, goes on a magical train adventure. It’s seems to be a game centred on growing up, and how that effects our relationships with those we love. For those of you interested, here’s a longer breakdown of the story, provided by the developers over at Paper Seven.
“Blackwood Crossing is a story-driven first-person adventure game. A haunting tale of intrigue and mystery.
You play as Scarlett, a teenager finding her way in the world. You wake up, disorientated, to find yourself and your younger brother, Finn, inexplicably travelling on a moving train.
But when a mysterious figure appears, it’s clear that this is no ordinary train ride. It’s the beginning of a magical voyage, steeped in life, love and loss.
Navigating this powerful drama – where the world, and your abilities develop in extraordinary ways – you are forced to examine your relationship with Finn. You are orphans, and your relationship has always been strong. However, adolescence has opened the door to new interests, and you’ve been growing apart.
As you gradually uncover the depths of Finn’s anguish, the consequences of your remoteness become shockingly clear.”
It seems to be a game we can all connect with in some way, as growing up was never an easy process for many and realizing that relationships grow apart and change is a thing everyoen combats. In any case, it seems like a cool little puzzle platformer, and worth a gander. Especially as it’s only $15.99 upon launch. Check out the gameplay trailer below though to really make up your mind.
