Indie game developer, LKA.it, has released their first first-person psychological thriller entitled The Town of Light.
Gamers will take their role as Renee, a confused 16-year-old girl, who struggles with the symptoms of mental illness.

Renee decides to visit the place where she had spent most of her childhood to find the truth behind her broken memories.
