In Sunset, from indie developer Tale of Tales (The Path), you play housekeeper Angela Burnes. Once a week, an hour before sunset, you visit the luxurious penthouse apartment of Gabriel Ortega.

Athough you have tasks to complete, you’re unable to resist going through Ortega’s things while he’s away. As you get to know your employer, you are drawn into a rebellious plot against notorious dictator General√≠simo Ricardo Miraflores.

Sunset is narrative-driven game in the vein of Dear Esther and Gone Home. It has no puzzles or combat. It’s done in a retro early-’70s style. It has a suspenseful, linear, three-act structure and offers an intimate, immersive experience.

The game has been successfully funded through Kickstarter. It will be released for Windows, Mac and Linux in March 2015.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
