    Last Day Of June is a short but satisfying tale that uses the Groundhog Day formula to immerse you in a touching and thoughtful way. While it doesn’t shy away from very serious real-world situations, it also doesn’t tastelessly sink you too deep into its dark depressive undertones either. It has a clever approach, especially considering the choice of medium that it uses, which is all so beautifully and carefully constructed to tell you its story.

    I’ll mention that this soundtrack is worth the price of admission itself but the story is fantastic and this is no doubt an experience you will remember.

    Last Day of June is an emotive and nicely balanced narrative adventure with a few issues holding it back.

    Heart-breaking, devastating and sometimes adorable. Last Day of June is a simple but well-written story about love, death, loss and the cruel company of loneliness. A piercing and deeply emotional adventure, partially ruined only by regular backtracking sequences.

    Last Day of June is mostly quite good. It’s a story-driven game with one of the best-told stories I’ve seen in some time, and it offers an emotional edge that’s likely going to leave you with a lot of feelings by the time you reach the credits. The gameplay, however, is passable at best and annoyingly repetitive at worst, and while it didn’t fully keep me from wanting to reach the end, it added a somewhat frustrating slog to get there.

    Last Day of June is a great example of how to turn a short tale into an engaging interactive experience, one that importantly does not overstay its welcome. There may be one or two frustrations along the way but, all-in-all, it tugs at the heart strings in the right places on the story front, and also engages the brain on the gameplay side of things enough to make everything feel extremely satisfying once it reaches its conclusion.

    Looking past the mediocre puzzle and adventuring elements as well as the cinematic repetition, Last Day of June excels at storytelling – conveying emotion on-screen in a way few other games manage to achieve. The developer has admittedly done a sound job at making a title involving such depressing themes as beautiful as possible – through its unique animation, perfectly synced soundtrack and stunning visuals. If you do intend on playing this, the ending is as catastrophic as it is comforting.

Un game design e un character design magistrali, accompagnati da colonne sonore davvero gradevoli, sempre pertinenti, e che accompagnano perfettamente l'esperienza. Una trama meravigliosa e da subito coinvolgente, con dei personaggi che trasmettono una carica empatia notevole, nonostante non parlino e non abbiano gli occhi. Assolutamente da giocare, e da plus si aggiunge la natura ibrida, quindi anche portatile, di Switch. Expand

I’ve thought about it a lot since finishing and have told everyone I know who likes games to check it out. What lets The Last Day of June down is its lack of direction. I feel like if there was more of a focus on the actual game parts of TLDOJ then it would be a 10 out of 10. However, because of this lack of direction and other smaller problems, it is brought down from being a masterpiece to being good or great- which still isn’t too bad! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I wish I had liked the ending as many people do, but I just hated it. I mean, you spend the whole game struggling to save your beloved one and be together again, just to find out that this is impossible. I give it a 6 because it's a beautiful game, but I think the ending is totally anti-climax. Expand
