The Games Awards are showing some exclusives tonight, and one of them was Where the Water Tastes like Wine. A new independent game from the programmer of Home.
Johnnemann Nordhagen split with Gone Home developer Fullbright to form his own studio Dim Bulb Games, and this will be their first game. As you’ll see in the trailer we don’t know much about Where the Water Tastes Like Wine, but we do know that it uses Unity as its games engine.
Looking at the website for the game the description given is:
“Where the Water Tastes Like Wine is an upcoming game about traveling, sharing stories, and surviving manifest destiny. Featuring gorgeous illustration by Kellan Jett, Where the Water Tastes Like Wine combines 2D visuals with a 3D overworld US map. Players wander through the United States – and through a century of history – to meet a variety of people, each with their own stories to tell.”
Features will include the use of a variety of folk tales and personal stories from all over America. The game promises a 3D overworld with the use of 2D illustrations to create a unique style for the game, whatever that means. I’m sure we’ll be hearing much more about this game as we move into 2016, which hopefully will include some gameplay so that we get a feel for what the game will be about.
