A modern fable about love and loss
Publisher 505 Games and developer Ovosonico relased the reveal trailer for Last Day of June – “an interactive tale about love and loss” from an all-star team of creators including critically acclaimed director Massimo Guarini (Murasaki Baby, Shadows of the Damned) and award-winning musician and record producer Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), featuring a collaboration with writer/director Jess Cope (animator on “Frankenweenie”, director for Metallica’s “Here Comes Revenge” music video).
Last Day of June, inspired by Steven Wilson’s haunting song “Drive Home,” takes players along main characters Carl and June’s bittersweet story told through a welcoming, painterly world.
Determined to save his beloved and fueled by the power of grief, Carl introduces players to June’s last day. The theme its creators are driving home is “how far would you go to save the one you love?”
While players will certainly be swept up in its story, they’ll be able to relive June’s last day by traveling back in time through her paintings in an attempt to change the results of the fateful and final drive home by solving emotionally challenging puzzles.
Currently, this title has a release window for 2017 and has only been announced for PlayStation 4 and Steam (PC).
