’80s teen adventure game, Crossing Souls, gets a nostalgic trailer

I’m a sucker for ’80s kid adventures like Stranger Things and Goonies, so when I saw the trailer for Crossing Souls, a retro-themed adventure game following a group of kids in the ’80s, I got emotional. Developer Fourattic and publisher Devolver Digital have released the trailer this past week, and it will transport you back into the golden age of Saturday morning cartoons and 16-bit gaming.

Check out the trailer below and see how films like Stand By Me, E.T. and Ghostbusters have influenced Crossing Souls.

The trailer features a synthwave song, a remix of Timecop1983’s “Dreams” featuring Dana Jean Phoenix. And it’s the perfect song that captures the mood of the game’s setting.

Synopsis: Crossing Souls takes us all back to the good old days of 1986 in California and tells the incredible story of a group of friends who will have the summer of their lives after uncovering a mysterious artifact with powers they don’t fully understand, but will change their fate forever. These remarkable kids will defy the laws of nature to interact between two planes of reality: life and death. When their curiosity triggers a series of unexpected events, their adventure will lead them away from home and everything they know into dark, secret governmental conspiracies – including secrets involving a mysterious U.S. Army general with his own nefarious plans.

Crossing Souls will be available for PS4 and PC on February 13, 2018.

Also, if you have the chance to attend PlayStation Experience 2017, the game will be playable with the development team on hand to answer questions.
