Today, Italian developer Ovosonico and publisher 505 Games announced that their profound interactive drama Last Day of June is poised to launch for PS4 and PC on August 31, 2017. And to celebrate the newly revealed launch date, the pair have dished out a new trailer.
The new cinematic trailer is said to offer a glimpse inside the game’s core mechanics and self-described meaningful narrative, in which players discover portals to the past that allow them to unlock and become characters intertwined in June’s story. Each character will bring with them a new challenging and equally emotional puzzle to solve, as June’s bereaved husband Carl attempts to turn back time and save her life. The premise of the game according to the developers is the inner-question: “What would I do to save the one I love?”
As previously reported, Last Day of June features a bit of an all-star collaboration, including critically acclaimed director Massimo Guarini (Murasaki Baby, Shadow of the Damned, Naruto: Rise of a Ninja), award-winning musician and record producer Steven Wilson, and Jess Cope (animator on Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie and director for Metallica’s Here Comes Revenge music video).
Last Day of June will cost $14.99 USD when it launches. Additionally, pre-orders for the game have gone live, with PS4 purchasers receiving 25 percent off and a theme “that depicts Carl and June in the celebrated style.”
