'Virginia' (ALL) Announced, Coming Soon - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 26, 2016 @ 8:19 p.m. PDT

Virginia is an interactive mystery told with a striking art style, cinematic soundtrack and a story that mixes the inexplicable, the absurd and the mundane.

Influenced by the genre-bending drama, science fiction and horror TV shows of the 1990s (Twin Peaks, The X-Files, The Outer Limits [90s]), Virginia is an original detective noir story, where players investigate the disappearance of Lucas Fairfax, a young boy in the rural town of Kingdom, Virginia, through the eyes of a graduate FBI agent assigned to her first case.

1992. George H. W. Bush and Boris Yeltsin officially put an end to the Cold War. Barcelona held the Summer Olympic Games. The Tonight Show aired its last show with Johnny Carson…

… and Lucas Fairfax disappeared from his bedroom in Kingdom, Virginia.

Experience a missing person investigation through the eyes of graduate FBI agent Anne Tarver. Together with your partner, seasoned investigator Maria Halperin, you’ll take a trip to idyllic Burgess County and the secluded town of Kingdom, Virginia, where a young boy has vanished and nobody seems to know why. Before long Anne will find herself negotiating competing interests, uncovering hidden agendas and testing the patience of a community unaccustomed to uninvited scrutiny.

As your investigation takes a turn for the sinister, and the list of suspects grows ever larger and stranger, you will make decisions which irrevocably shape the course of Anne’s and agent Halperin’s lives.
