Last Day Of June drops onto the Nintendo Switch eShop today. A game I am most excited about and keeping tabs on, this release somehow slipped by me until I saw a Tweet from Nintendo of Europe saying it is out now! The Last Day of June Twitter announced it 2 days ago, but due to the time difference for me in Australia I completely missed its announcement. I feel shamed.

Here is the info on the game from Nintendo.co.uk
A heart-driven quest
Last Day of June is inspired by Steven Wilson’s haunting song, Drive Home. Recreated as an interactive adventure, Last Day of June takes players on a profound and poignant journey.
Poetry in motion
A true artistic innovation in visualising a bittersweet story told through a welcoming, painterly world that showcases the beauty of life and love, but also the contradictions of loss.
Empathy through experience
Determined to save his beloved and fuelled by the power of grief, Carl introduces players to June’s last day. But as they interact with the narrative, players will progress from viewer to a character deeply intertwined in the story.
Relive June’s last day by traveling back in time through her paintings in an attempt to change the results of the fateful and final drive home by solving emotionally challenging puzzles.
Carl and June’s story progresses at key moments where life-changing decisions need to be made, but players may need to navigate unintentional consequences that create new dilemmas – and potentially new opportunities.
