A new trailer has been released that offers a deeper insight into the painterly world of the upcoming single-player journey. This cinematic glimpse inside Last Day of June reveals core mechanics of the meaningful narrative, in which players discover portals to the past that allow them to unlock and become characters intertwined in June’s story. Each character will present new emotionally challenging puzzles to solve, as June’s bereaved husband Carl attempts to turn back time and save her life.

From an all-star collaboration of creators including acclaimed director Massimo Guarini (Murasaki Baby, Shadow of the Damned, Naruto: Rise of a Ninja), award-winning musician and record producer Steven Wilson, and Jess Cope (animator on Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” and director for Metallica’s “Here Comes Revenge” music video), Last Day of June blends multiple genres of art to offer a meaningful and creative experience that will resonate with a broad audience of players. Intended as a poignant journey that will appeal to gamers and non-gamers alike, Last Day of June poses the question “What would you do to save the one you love?”
New song “Pariah” featuring the beautiful voice of Ninet Tayeb, as heard in the new Last Day of June trailer, will be included in the forthcoming Steven Wilson record, “To the Bone”. Additional information about the album, which will be released on Aug. 18th, can be found on the Steven Wilson website.
