“Inside every knickknack left behind is a treasure trove of memories and stories filled with joys and sorrows.” I don’t know what that means, but given that it’s the opening line in the trailer for Simogo’s new game – The Sailor’s Dream – I’m willing to find out.
According to the game’s website, The Sailor’s Dream is set for “late 2014 on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.” That’s about a year between it and Device 6, which was developed in even less time after Year Walk (which got a PC release a few months ago, too).
The trailer for the new game seems far more mellow than the previous pair. It’s described as “a challenge-free experience in which you explore a non-linear story through words, music, sounds and illustrations.” That, combined with the soothing music and shots of abandoned buildings on the sea, leads me to believe I won’t be as terrified/depressed as in previous Simogo efforts.
Even so, I expect it will be an intriguing experience. The devs have come a long way since Beat Sneak Bandit (which is a fine game, in its own way).
Now if only this announcement didn’t have me listening to that song on loop again.
