Another Sight is a surreal fantasy adventure with steampunk elements set in 1899 towards the end of the Victoria era, in London.

Created with heart, culture and character, Another Sight is the story of Kit and Hodge. Whilst exploring the London Underground during its construction in 1899, Kit, a bold teenager is caught in a tunnel collapse. When Kit wakes up, her sight is gone, and she’s left helpless in the dark world below London. Hodge, a mysterious cat finds Kit, and becomes her companion on a journey through a surreal fantasy adventure, influenced by Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere.

Together, they team up for an adventure through the unexpected. Kit and Hodge will need to explore the world both together and apart using each of their unique talents to tackle environments and solve intriguing puzzles.

Beneath London, in a world inspired by Neil Gaiman’s urban fantasy, Neverwhere, Kit and Hodge encounter a hidden society made up of the world’s greatest inventors and finest artistic minds, including Claude Monet, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison and other historical cultural icons.

Another Sight will be launching on Steam on 6th September 2018, followed by Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One later in the year.

Marco Ponte, CEO and Founder of Lunar Great Wall commented: “Another Sight has truly been a labour of love for the team here at Lunar Great Wall. We’re now pleased to be able to share Hodge and Kit with the world and invite players to experience their journey with us.”

Another Sight is developed using Unreal Engine which has enabled Lunar Great Wall Studios realise their vision. Marco Ponte commented on using the Unreal Engine, saying “It is fantastic to have Another Sight powered with industry-leading engine. The reliability and completeness of the development suite provided with Unreal Engine allowed our developers to stay fully concentrated on gameplay and pursue our artistic vision for the project.”

Returning comment, Sjoerd De Jong from EPIC GAMES had the following to say on Another Sight incorporating the Unreal Engine “Unreal offers a complete suite of powerful tools which are designed to meet the needs of games developers across the world. It provides a solid foundation on which to build on allowing developers, such as Lunar Great Wall, to concentrate on creating award-winning stand-out games.”

Key Features:

  • EMOTIVE DRIVEN – A story about a girl and her cat companion on a journey beyond sight and the real. A tale of warmth and intrigue is woven throughout the adventure, touching on trust, companionship and losing what we take for granted. Innovative gameplay and a story of heart is galvanized by a soundscape given life by a symphonic orchestra to accent memorable moments between Kit, Hodge and the journey they’re on.
  • MASTERS OF THE PAST – Throughout the journey, Kit and Hodge will meet virtuoso artists such as Claude Monet and other cultural historical figures from the past, learning more about the world and dangers it presents. Each encounter visually impacts the world, taking on aesthetics of each creative movement from the famous characters Kit and Hodge meet.
  • STORY WOVEN GAMEPLAY – Use the unique abilities of each character to help Kit and Hodge traverse the world and overcome environmental challenges. Kit and Hodge can split up to investigate different areas of the locale that the other may not be able to reach, with both Kit and Hodge perceiving the world in very different ways, opening up different possibilities for overcoming their adventure. 

Another Sight is in development for Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC, scheduled to launch in 2018.
