Where the Water Tastes Like Wine is a game in which the player wanders across the United States, meets and interacts with diverse characters representing a century of history, and listens to the stories they have to tell.

The game’s distinctive art style by Kellan Jett combines 2D visuals with a 3D overworld map of the US. The stories have been written by a variety of excellent scribes.

There is professional voice talent aplenty, including Sting as The Wolf. The wonderfully atmospheric soundtrack is by Ryan Ike, who also did the OST for West of Loathing.

Where the Water Tastes Like Wine is the first game from Dim Bulb Games, founded by Johnnemann Nordhagen, co-founder of Fullbright and sole programmer on Gone Home. The game will be released on Windows, Mac and Linux (Steam) in early 2018, exact date TBD.

Oh, BTW…you might notice that the phrase “Produce of U.S.A.” appears in the game. This is not a typo. In the early 20th Century, it was reflected on labels appearing on produce that was grown in the U.S. As such, it fits in well with the game’s atmosphere. Have a look:

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.
