Silence of the Lambs, anyone?
Developed by Variable State, Virginia is a first-person thriller experience that takes place in a small town. You take on the role of FBI agent Anne Tarver as you are tasked with investigating a missing person case. 505 Games will be publishing the indie game, and they’ve released a new trailer for it.
There’s also a free demo available for download on Steam right now. Here are the official story details, taken from the Steam store page:
‘Virginia is a single-player first-person thriller set in a small town with a secret. 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.’
Virginia will be made available for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 22.
