The Last Day Of June, Butterfly Effect Love Story Coming Late 2017 For PS4, PC
Last Day of June
(Last Updated On: May 31, 2017)

Italian indie developers Ovosonico and publisher 505 Games announced that they’re working on The Last Day of June. The design team is composed of a few heavyweights in the gaming industry, including alum who worked on Murasaki Baby and Shadows of the Damned.

The game was announced with a two minute long music video-style trailer showcasing a brief series of vignettes that sequence the tragedy that befalls the main character and the time-warping quest to restore the life of the one he lost and loved. It’s a trippy little trailer that you can check out below.

According to Massimo Guarini, the founder and CEO of Ovosonico, it was explained in the press release that the reason the game is designed in the way that it is, is because they’re hoping to reach people using a different style of interactivity to focus on a unique art-style and storytelling mechanic to seduce people who may not typically find the traditional video game format appealing, saying…

“With Last Day of June, my vision is to create a riveting emotional experience that connects with the broader audience of human beings,” “People feel comfortable broadly saying they don’t like videogames without ever really trying them, but never say that about movies or music or art – there’s always something they can identify with. I believe games can be just as universal and relatable, and that’s what we’re attempting to show with this project.”

There’s nothing that gets the heart strings plucked like tragedy.

I don’t know how well this could appeal to traditional core gamers, but this particular single-player journey follows the last day that Carl shares with his love June. It also chronicles how through a compelling series of events Carl attempts to save June on the last day of her life.

Players will be able to fiddle and fumble around with the time-space continuum in their attempt to help Carl change history.

If for nothing else, the art-style style is at least visually striking and seems like the sort of thing you would expect from a short film and not a video game. So props to the team for at least trying something new when it comes to the visuals of The Last Day of June.

You can look for the game to launch on PlayStation 4 and PC at some point in later in 2017. You can keep track of the development as it moves toward completion by visiting the official website.
