According to Last Day of June’s lead designer Mattia Traverso, the title is about “a feeling anyone can relate to,” regret. Given that the title deals with how protagonist Carl copes with the death of his wife June after a car crash, regret is certainly an apt feeling. All is not lost, however, as Carl has a chance to alter the day’s tragic events by interacting with her paintings.
Gamers can play the lush, vibrant-looking title when it releases on August 31 (PS4 and PC) for $19.99.
I had the chance to play a little bit of the game at E3, and apart from Last Day of June’s arresting visual style, the music of Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson was integral to drawing me into the world.
Check out the title new trailer to also get a sense of some of the puzzle/interactive-based gameplay and some of the roads Carl travels down.

Developer Ovosonico is teasing that Carl’s journey isn’t without its own price to pay, and I’m interested to see how the game explores this point.
