From the official site:
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 favorite 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 artistic 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?”
For me, Last Day of June tapped into some of my deepest fears: losing a loved ones, having my choices scar another person’s life, and feeling helpless to change awful circumstances – to name a few. And while it made me feel things that no one wants to feel, it figuratively brought me through the five stages of grief with its characters; further drive home the point that we are all connected to each other, we need community, and our choices could make all the difference.
Before you pick this game up, know what you are getting yourself into. It gets messy and you may only play it once. This is not a game you play for the fun, but for the feelings. So, be open to getting a little uncomfortable… and don’t blame the onions, it’s ok if you tear up a bit.
