Indie gaming studio Variable State, created by former E.A. writer/designer Jonathan Burroughs and former Rockstar games animator/artist Terry Kenny, have begun work on “Virginia” an interactive drama that takes influences from T.V. shows “The X-files,” “Twin Peaks” and “The Outer Limits.”
“Virginia” follows two FBI agents as they try and track down a missing child and uncover the mystery surrounding the child’s disappearance. The art style of the game is simplistic and has the look of a 3D avatar character.
Before creating Variable State, Burroughs had work for a number of gaming companies including Rare, Relentless software and DeepMind Technologies. He has working on numerous games including “House of the Dead: Overkill” and Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. Kenny had previously worked on “House of the Dead: Overkill” and “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.”
Virginia will be coming to PC in 2015.
