In recent years, we've seen an explosion in first-person adventures that eschew combat in favor of exploration based, narrative driven experiences. Add the 1970s Latin American revolution game Sunset to this collection.
Brought to us by the Belgian developer Tale of Tales, Sunset puts players in the shoes of Angela Burnes, an American tourist who gets trapped in a fictional South American city after its dictator closes the border. To survive, she takes a job cleaning the exquisite apartment of wealthy dissident Gabriel Ortega. As the streets rattle with explosions outside, Burnes takes sanctuary in Ortega's home each day around sunset to wipe down the windows, clean his dishes, and perform other housekeeping tasks. As you go about your duties, each day you get a chance to snoop through a different part of his house. Whether you rifle through his things to find out more about your mysterious employer or keep on the straight and narrow is up to you. Whatever actions you take (or don't take) will shape your relationship with Ortega. Check out the latest trailer:
Look for Sunset to hit PC, Mac, and Linux on May 21 for $19.99.
