Wales Interactive, the publishing studio behind Maid of Sker, and Ghost Dog Films have teamed up to create an interactive film called I Saw Black Clouds. To announce the film, a chilling teaser trailer was released earlier this week.
I Saw Black Clouds puts the viewer in control of the story:
After the unexpected death of a close friend, Kristina returns to her hometown looking for answers, only to unearth a string of dark secrets. The truth turns out to be far more harrowing than she could have imagined…
I Saw Black Clouds is an interactive psychological thriller with supernatural elements and branching storylines. How you connect with the characters and the moral choices you make along the way will affect what you discover, the journey you take, and the resolution you find at the end.
Like most interactive experiences, every decision and branch is tracked and compared against other players. At the end of I Saw Black Clouds, viewers will be able to see how their choices compared against other players. Five dimensions of personality, “honesty, strength, morality, tact, and introspection,” are all tested in this chilling experience.
Players can expect to see full live-action scenes starring Nicole O’Neill (Red Sparrow, Penny Dreadful) and real-time tracking of relationships and personality traits. A special Streamer Mode allows players to pause their choices, so streamers will have plenty of time to discuss.
I Saw Black Clouds doesn’t have an official release date as of this writing, but its release is promised in Q1 2021 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Mac. The interactive film will be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S at a later date.
