I hope it doesn’t get buried on the eShop
Here’s your feel-good video game trailer of the day.
It’s a trailer for Wide Ocean Big Jacket, a soothing narrative game about an aunt and uncle taking their niece – and her boyfriend! – on a camping trip. You’ll be able to “roast hot dogs on the fire, go birdwatching, tell ghost stories, grab a beverage from the cooler, and do cartwheels on the beach.”
No, really – I mean it. I grinned the whole way through. This looks so pleasant.
If the full 20-chapter, hour-and-a-half-long story can captivate me even half as much as the video, I’ll be thrilled. Worth stressing: Turnfollow is nominated for Excellence in Narrative at the Independent Games Festival, and the team also earned an honorable mention for the Seumas McNally Grand Prize.
