Fresh off of Maid of Sker, game developer Wales Interactive has announced that it’s teaming up with Ghost Dog Films for I Saw Black Clouds, a full motion video (FMV) game that pairs a psychological thriller plot with supernatural elements and branching storylines.
The game follows Kristina (Nicole O’Neill), who returns to her hometown looking for answers after the unexpected death of a close friend—only to unearth a string of dark secrets. The decisions players make will affect the journey taken and the game’s conclusion, and could even result in entirely different storylines. An optional “Streamer Mode” will also cause the game to pause every time a choice needs to be made, allowing streamers to ask their viewers what direction they should take.
I Saw Black Clouds will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam in Q1 2021. Grab an umbrella and check out the trailer below.
