Have a short immersive narrative adventure with Beyond Your Window

By - | Views: 12,868

A pretty apt game for 2020, as Beyond Your Window is a narrative game about what goes on outside as you look outside your window as you search for new stories to tell. Quite on-point, given the various lockdowns across the world thanks to the COVID19 pandemic.

Developed by Italian studio Team SolEtude, it's something of a visual novel / narrative adventure filled with wonderful art and relaxing chilled tunes. Divided up into four short-stories, with each giving you an epilogue that changes depending on your choices.

"While searching for new stories to tell, you look outside your window...and catch glimpses of other people's lives. Observing their struggles, you ask yourself what you would do if it was you living those moments, those situations. As you immerse yourself in stories filled with love, choices and difficulties, will you be able to find something to inspire your ideas?"

Features:

  • 4 choice based stories about love struggles and apartments.
  • Multiple endings for each story.
  • A total of 15 characters.
  • 30min/1h for a single walkthrough.
  • Music by Gròa.

What also captured my interest with this title, apart from the lovely artwork, is the lengthy Post-Mortem the developer posted up on their itch blog which gives lots of background information on what they wanted to do with it. I found the post quite insightful and genuinely interesting to learn the thought process of what a team went through to bring out their first release.

You can pick it up free (or donate) on itch.io
