Virginia, the long-awaited "first person interactive drama from" indie game studio Variable State will hit consoles and desktops on September 22nd. The game, which draws its inspiration from 90s supernatural thrillers like Twin Peaks and The X-Files, tells the story of FBI agent Anne Tarver working to solve a missing person investigation in Kingdom, Virginia -- a small town hiding a big secret.

The story takes place, appropriately enough, in last days of summer 1992 where rookie detective Tarver must navigate the competing interests of her experienced partner, her superiors at the FBI and an ever-increasing list of interesting suspects. Although the game is being hailed for its cinematic "detective noir" storyline, there's actually no dialogue and Virginia's moody soundtrack does much of the talking for it. (The strings were recorded live by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra at the same studio that did the music for David Lynch's Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive, by the way.)

Virginia will be available as a digital download for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, or via Steam for Windows and macOS machines on September 22nd. To tide you over until then, Variable State has released a consumer demo, also available on Steam.
