505 Games’ First-person thriller Virginia will launch for Xbox One, PS4 and PC/macOS via Steam on September 22, it has been announced.

Influenced by 90s cult TV shows such as Twin Peaks and The X-Files, Virginia is “an interactive mystery told with a striking art style, cinematic soundtrack and a story that mixes the inexplicable, the absurd and the mundane.”

Here’s a quick overview, taken from a press release:

“Set in the last days of summer 1992, Virginia is an original detective noir story, where players investigate the disappearance of Lucas Fairfax, a young boy in the rural town of Kingdom, Virginia, through the eyes of a graduate FBI agent assigned to her first case.  As a rookie detective, you’re paired with an experienced partner whom your superiors instruct you to keep a watchful eye on. As the story progresses, your partner’s trust in you will be tested to breaking point, all while your investigation takes on an increasingly sinister and supernatural turn, as the list of suspects grows ever larger and stranger.”

A consumer demo is currently available for download on Steam, with the full release coming September 22. See the release date reveal trailer below.
