Swamp Noir Title ‘Knee Deep’ Coming to Consoles
Wales Interactive is apparently the name to watch in indie horror, as the company is quickly moving from relatively obscure indie developer to up-and-coming powerhouse. Hot on the heels of announcing the expansion of Soul Axiom to XBox and Playstation consoles, as well as the upcoming live-action The Bunker, they announced a new partnership today. Wales is teaming up with indie developer Prologue Games to bring episodic “swamp noir” game Knee Deep to XBox One and PS4.
Knee Deep is a detective story in which you investigate a strange death deep in the heart of Florida’s swamps. Three playable characters all have their own reasons to look deeper into the apparent suicide of a washed-up actor, feeling all is not as it seems. In a town where everyone has a motive, and no one seems to be normal, who can you trust? Taking notes from television’s cult classic Twin Peaks, Knee Deep is quirky dark humor fleshed out with color-saturated scenes and a jazzy soundtrack.
While we do not yet know the exact release date for the XBox release of Knee Deep, we do know that it will be out in Q3 2016. The final episode of the game released this March for Mac and PC users, and has 88% positive player reviews on Steam.
