Blending together elements of 3D and 2D games, the upcoming story-driven adventure Blue June looks good. In development by Tiny Dodo, a solo one-girl team independent video game developer from Toronto, Canada. The developer, Bibi, is responsible for all parts of the game from programming to art and audio.

Play as June, a student of the prestigious Rose Hill Academy, and uncover the truth that lies beneath her troubled mind. Explore the campus, go to class, make new friends, and investigate the terrors that haunt June."

The colors, sounds, and smells are no longer the same. With every passing day, the dream world seeps into the real one and soon, she might not be able to tell the difference…"
