“Last Day of June” a cinematic video game based on Steven Wilson’s music

30th May 2017

2 years in the making, Ovosonico and 505 Games today announced “Last Day of June”, a cinematic video game based around my music and the characters Hajo Mueller created for the song Drive Home, later adapted and animated in Jess Cope’s video. I’m not a gamer myself so I didn’t really know what to expect from a video game based on what is quite a melancholic story, but I found it to be an incredibly beautiful and emotional experience.

You can watch the first trailer for the game below, which contains the track ‘Harmony Korine’.

Last Day of June is a poignant single-player journey that progresses participants from a viewer joining Carl and June on what begins as a magical outing to their favourite spot, to a character deeply intertwined in the narrative, as they try to unlock the sequence of events that could save the day – and June’s life. In this cinematic experience, players will solve emotionally challenging puzzles in an attempt to turn back time, compelling them to ask themselves “What would you do to save the one you love?”

“Last Day of June” will be released on PS4 and PC later in 2017.
