Wales Interactive has not just dipped its toe into FMV’s renaissance: it’s dunked its collective head in. Fresh from the release of lockdown dating drama Five Dates, it’s announced something a touch darker: I Saw Black Clouds. Described as a psychological thriller, the story will follow the events of Kristina (Nicole O'Neill), as she “returns to her hometown looking for answers only to unearth a string of dark secrets”.
The press release pitches: “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. Your decisions will not only change individual scenes, but could present you with an entirely different storyline that can be discovered on multiple playthroughs.”
The game’s due out on the PlayStation 4 in Q1 2021, with a native PlayStation 5 release to follow. Of course, you’ll be able to play the PS4 version on Sony’s next-gen console courtesy of backwards compatibility if you can’t wait that long. There’s a trailer embedded above, which should give you a rough idea of what production company Ghost Dog Films is shooting for. Looks interesting, no?
