Acclaimed developer Mike Bithell Games, creator of Thomas Was Alone, revealed Volume, a brand new experience, which made its console debut on PlayStation 4 at today’s Sony Gamescom 2014 press briefing.
Here is what the developer had to say about Volume,
Volume is a stealth game about being heard.
Locksley does not kill. That would be far too easy. Instead, he commits his crimes through stealth. He sneaks, he distracts, he avoids. He is never seen, and seldom heard. As he grows in popularity and notoriety, so will his inventory. Blackjacks, bugles, thunderclaps and veils are just some of the tools at Locksley’s disposal.
The game will be released with a hundred challenging and exciting environments, but that is only the beginning. Every area of the game can be remixed, added to and expanded upon. The community are free to take the game in any direction they want, even releasing their own takes on the core levels. This is a game which will evolve, warp and grow as players make their mark on Locksley’s legend.
Volume is a near future retelling of the Robin Hood legend, starring Danny Wallace and Charlie McDonnell. It will likely be a pretty good game.
