Wales Interactive got in touch with us to announce that they’ll be releasing episodic adventure Knee Deep on Playstation 4 this month.
The game has been developed by Prologue Games, and will be releasing on January 31st.
When a washed-up actor hangs himself on location, a spotlight is cast on the backwater Florida town of Cypress Knee. Knee Deep is a crime thriller where choices matter as you investigate this mysterious suicide.
Your screen becomes a stage as you investigate as three distinct characters: cheeky blogger Romana Teague, down-and-out local reporter Jack Bellet, and cynical private investigator K.C. Gaddis. Use your skills of observation, deduction, and cleverness to pull back the curtain and reveal the true story behind this swampland conspiracy.
Experience a magical reality where characters are transported among scenes, set pieces moved into place, and music wafts from the orchestra pit. Knee Deep is about characters, storytelling, and the melodrama of swampland Florida.
Uncover a swampland conspiracy — Use your skills of observation, deduction, and cleverness to pull back the curtain and reveal the true story behind this backwater community.

Colin Dwan, Founder and MD of Prologue Games, had this to say:
We always wanted Knee Deep to end up on consoles but knew that it would take the right partner to help us navigate the waters of submission, marketing, and distribution. When we met Wales Interactive, we realized they were a perfect choice. Their track record of strong platform relationships, commitment to great content, and tenacious marketing put us at ease. We’re thrilled to be working with the team and can’t wait to bring Knee Deep to the console world!
David Banner, Founder and CEO of Wales Interactive added:
Knee Deep first caught my eye when it was being demoed on a neighbouring stand at London’s Rezzed 2015. That’s when I first met Colin and we discussed the potential of a Welsh/American collaboration to bring the game to console. The relationship has built from there and with our ethos of Indies helping Indies it’s great to work with such a talented forward thinking studio like Prologue Games who really see the value in teaming up to help get Knee Deep to a wider audience.
