As you probably already know, Epic Games regularly offers free games. The pace is accelerating since now Epic offers one game per week. After titles like Rime, Enter the Gungeon or City of Brass, it’s thr turn for Last Day of June to join your library, all without paying a penny of course.

“What would you do to save the person you love?” is how Last Day of June starts. Developed by Ovosonico, and published by 505 Games, which will also publish Control in August, Last Day of June is an emotional visual novel. Released on August 31, 2017, it puts you in the shoes of Carl, a young man who has lost his sweetheart, June, during a tragic car accident, which also made him disabled. You will dive into Carl’s memories, and relive this day with several characters, and from different angles to reconstruct the events that led to the accident, and thus try to avoid it. Last Day of June could also have been called “the butterfly effect” because you will discover as the story goes on that every little detail can have very serious consequences.

If you have never played this kind of game, the gameplay of Last Day of June will surely seem minimalist to you. That’s the case in most visual novels; you follow a story by interacting with the world around you to advance through it. But Last Day of June will transport you with its colorful graphics that will give us the impression of moving in a fable, but also with its atmosphere and music, composed by Steven Wilson, singer and guitarist of the group Porcupine Tree. Jess Cope, host of Tim Burton’s film Frankenweenie also collaborated with Ovosinico on the production and writing of Last Day of June.
