LAST LIFE, from indie developer Sam Farmer (Rocket Science Amusements), is an epic story told in three episodes. A Kickstarter campaign is in progress to finance Episode One (or all three, if stretch goals are met). The campaign, which runs until May 9, 2014, has already exceeded its base goal nicely.
Tim Schafer loves LAST LIFE. So much so that he's promoting the game and lending it a "Double Fine Presents" banner.
Gameplay is inspired by modern point-and-click adventure games such as Kentucky Route Zero and Telltale's Walking Dead series. LAST LIFE focuses on atmosphere and storytelling, while also challenging the player's detective skills of interrogation and deduction.
LAST LIFE will be released for PC, Mac and Linux. The current anticipated launch date is May 2015.
