Arise: A Simple Story’s release date announced
The highly emotional adventure game Arise: A Simple Story has received a release date along with its announce trailer. The game, published by Techland and developed by the Spanish 15-person studio Piccolo, is set to release on December 3.
Arise follows a man who has recently passed away and has woken up in a strange place. While making his way towards the mesmerizing light beckoning from a mountaintop, the man discovers his newfound power of time manipulation. Each chapter supposedly represents a specific turning point in the man’s long life “filled with relatable moments of joy and sorrow”. The game’s goal is to “let players reminisce and reflect on their own lives as they progress to the story.”
Pre-ordering the game gives the players access to a digital soundtrack composed by David Garcia, whose heartfelt work on Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is praised. Arise: A Simple Story will be released digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store.
