The Long Reach, a thrilling horror adventure game with a sceptical view on the human psyche out now on Xbox One.
Wednesday July 18, 2018, Manchester, UK - Merge Games and Painted Black Games, a Ukrainian / Russian indie game developer, are pleased to announce the release of The Long Reach on Xbox One. At its heart it’s an adventure game but closer inspection also reveals it’s a thrilling horror story, flavoured with sci-fi ideology, psychological context and a sceptical view on the human psyche.
The Long Reach takes place in New Hampshire, in the fictional town of Baervox. The game draws its inspiration from Lone Survivor and The Cave and all the classical adventures (except that The Long Reach is set in the present day). You don't play in a post-apocalyptic world or explore a fairy-filled fantasy world. You’re in the thick of it, just around the corner from the place where you buy your groceries.
The Long Reach is set for digital release Xbox One on Wednesday July 17, 2018 – all versions priced at (£12.99, €14.99, $14.99).
Review codes available on request. For more information, please contact: Nick Clarkson - [email protected]
