Almost Summer

Over on ihobo today, my critique of the latest Tale of Tales art/game, Bientôt L'été. Here’s a taster:

With this new title, Tale of Tales riff off the idea of online encounter they brilliantly reinvented with The Endless Forest, and which went on to influence Journey. However, whereas Journey offers a powerful pre-designed emotional experience on the back of its one-on-one encounters with other players, the experiment in Bientôt L'été walks purposefully in the opposite direction, asking how much ambiguity can be introduced into a fictional world before it ceases to offer a coherent story. Indeed, the latest Beta begins by warning you that there is nothing to do, and there is no story. Respectfully, I must disagree.
