Arise is an emotional journey through the life of two people where memories come alive and time bends to the player’s will. Each chapter represents a specific turning point in a man’s long life filled with relatable moments of joy and sorrow. Arise’s heartwarming love story will have players experience diverse powerful emotions – both the protagonist’s and their own.

“Arise is an emotional journey through a lifetime full of bliss and sorrow, ultimately a tale everyone can relate to. It allows you to explore the many seasons of life illustrated by evocative environments, and relive memories with the help of a unique time manipulation gameplay mechanic. Our goal is to let players reminisce and reflect on their own lives as they progress through the story,” said Alexis Corominas, one of the founders of Piccolo.
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.
Those who wish to experience a moving adventure can pre-order Arise and enjoy a digital soundtrack composed by David García, whose work on Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was awarded a BAFTA award in Audio Achievement and a nomination in the Best Music category. Now, players can discover Arise’s heartfelt magic as García’s soulful music brings memories to life.
Arise will be released digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store.
