ICO-esque Toren announced for PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac

A journey of discovery and transformation.


Indie publisher Versus Evil today announced Toren, a dark fantasy puzzle adventure game from Brazil-based indie developer Swordtales coming to PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac in early 2015.

In a journey about “growth, discovery, and overcoming great hurdles,” the game leads the player through an “introspective and captivating journey to explore deep concepts and existential questions.” Players will witness the birth and growth of a lonely girl named Moonchild, and guide her on a journey of discovery and transformation as she unlocks the power of a tower called Toren.

“We’re very excited to be teaming up with Versus Evil,” said Swordtales producer Vitor Severo Leães. “Toren is the biggest project of our lives and we have been independently developing it for three years. A big concern for us was finding a publishing partner for the game, one that understood how we operated and had the experience to help us launch the game successfully. We found the ideal partner in Versus Evil and are looking forward to working closely with them.”
