    Really, that balance of sadness and nostalgia captures what Last Day in June is all about. You’ll come away from it feeling a little heartbroken, but sometimes that’s what great art does to you — and make no mistake, this is some pretty exceptional art.

    Ovosonico, the studio behind Murasaki Baby, gives us a pretty fable full of emotions. Inspired by the movie "Groundhog Day", Last Day of June is a game with seductive graphics and unusual gameplay. Our favorite game of this summer.

    Last Day of June is an original, intimate, moving and human interactive adventure. A tale of love and loss for PS4 and PC.

    Fascinating adventure with a very simple game concept but a very deep and emotional storyline. A bit short, too.

    As a game, The Last Day of June is repetitive, slow going, and at times absolutely depressing. Getting stuck trying to solve a puzzle can make that process feel even slower. The repeating story and nature of the themes at play lead to having to experience a lot of the same scenes again and again with seemingly no way to skip them. A blemish on an otherwise solid story telling experience. As a game, there isn’t all that much to it and can easily be played by many, but as a story telling emotional experience, it doesn’t get much better that this. I began the game thinking this was something completely different than my expectation lead me to believe. Shortly after the intro moments, when I realized that The Last Day of June wasn’t a title about the end of summer but the last day of a person’s life, the reality set in that this was going to be an emotional rollercoaster, and it surely is.

    The Last Day of June is an emotional, gentle puzzle, where you must live one sunny afternoon over and over again to try and avert tragedy. It doesn't feel especially new, but it'll still probably make you a bit teary.

    Last Day of June's brevity is its saving grace, buoying up a story that isn't done any favors by its gameplay loop. There is undoubtedly potential in a game that allows you to alter past events to reshape the present, and Last Day of June shows glimmers of promise; however, it also ruins the emotional impact of its most important event by forcing you to repeat it so many times.

    Last Day of June
    A Beautiful Story
    Last Day of June is a narrative focused adventure game where you play as multiple charcters in a town on the same day
    After spending the day on the lake with your wife
    on your way home a child who goes to retrieve his ball from the road causes you to swerve and crash
    This puts you in a wheelchair and your wife is now dead.
    So you go through paintings to go back in time to stop this
    first playing as the boy…
    The goal of the game is to know the outcome and trigger events to stop it from happening
    so youll be running around the world trying to stop this boy from going into the road for example at first..
    But preventing this will cause another problem for you to go back and fix.. causing a bit of a butterfly effect so youll be playing as 4 characters in this town on the same day trying to make sure everyones day goes perfect, that nothing could possibly go wrong so that you can get your wife home safe…
    The game in turn is one giant puzzle, it will have you unlocking paths with characters to have to fail on purpose to only go back in time as the other characters you’ve already played as to now have a different fate so that other characters can use items that they needed
    until finally you have the perfect balance of outcomes..
    it’s a really enjoyable game of problem solving with a beautiful story of a man willing to do whatever it takes to save his wife
    The gameplay isn’t ground breaking, and frustratingly you cant skip scenes you’ve already scene…
    When you do go back to play as characters thankfully the game will start where you need to be to make a different choice and not force you to play through that characters entire day again…
    but you have to watch how their day plays out over and over even if you know youre messing things up on purpose for the time being just to free an item for someone else
    This is really my only complaint with the entire game…
    The rest of it I loved
    the story is told through mumbles,
    but will still touch your heart
    I give Last Day of June
    a 7.5/10
