Old Man’s Journey

‘Interactive picture book’, the reviews on Steam all call it, and having Finished it I can agree. The eponymous old man receives a letter and heads out on a journey not only across land and sea, but through his own story- one that explores the cost of following your dreams.

To guide the old man on his journey, you play with the perspective and elevation of his storybook environment to create paths from one area to the next. It’s simple and low-stress with no fail case.

Fin or Bin:

You will, very early on, be met with thoughts of “I’m going to cry by the end of this, aren’t I”. Yes. Yes you are. Embrace it. It took about 90 minutes to Finish, so give yourself an evening to spend on this journey.
