Techland Publishing today announced that Arise: A Simple Story is now available as a digital download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Epic Games Store. A beautiful and deeply moving platform adventure game, Arise is Barcelona-based developer Piccolo Studio’s first game to ever be released.

Arise invites players to take the first step on a journey into the afterlife. The game is a heartfelt tale of an old man’s life, interwoven with love and loss, through the symbolic landscapes of his memories and a unique traversal mechanic that allows players to manipulate time in single player or light cooperative play. As each chapter represents a pivotal moment from the protagonist’s past, Arise’s touching love story will take the old man—and the players themselves—on an impassioned emotional rollercoaster of empowering highs and visceral lows.

Arise is artistically enchanting with beautiful landscapes and an emotional soundtrack composed by BAFTA Award winning composer David García.

Arise is a deep narrative, carefully crafted to transcend both the literal and metaphorical. We travel together with an old man across artistically stunning landscapes, each of which represents a crucially poignant moment of his life, lush with love and loss,” said Alexis Corominas, one of the founders of Piccolo. “We hope players will find themselves walking alongside him on a path of self-reflection, and, with each step, relate to the heartfelt magic in his story. We can’t wait for the players to discover what—or whom—they and the old man will find throughout the journey.”

Piccolo was established by three friends who quit their corporate jobs to pursue their long-time dream of creating handcrafted video games. Piccolo, Italian for “small,” is a tight-knit, 15-person strong team.

Arise is now available as a digital download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Epic Games Store.
