It’s nothing new that indie developers tackle personal life stories or deliver more contemplative experiences than AAA studios (although there are exceptions of course), and this title feels as true to this as any. It tells the story of fiction writer Sid whose creativity and new inspirations have to be rekindled in order for him to deliver a story for a grant to pay his rent.
While this doesn’t sound like much intrigue, especially since it only takes place on one Sunday, there are many heartfelt moments, including friends and family. After being invited by his mother due to her having to sell her house and doing one last farewell party, Sid sees all the memories of the past flooding back to him. A bit reminiscent of The Last Show of Mr. Chardish (see the GOG release news), one also plays parts of the fictional world he creates, making this another example of how art and life can be represented in a game.
The game is out now on PC with a 15% launch discount that lasts until April 21, 2021, at 4 PM UTC.
