Supposedly Wonderful Future Turns Out Not to be So Wonderful
“A sci-fi narrative game about screens, small rooms, and existential dread”
Sci-fi adventure Supposedly Wonderful Future is the result of four years’ labor on a zero budget by just one person: Russian developer Dmitry Zagumennov. The project has a singular focus: to tell a meaningful, thought-provoking and emotional story.
The game plays like a cross between a point-and-click adventure, a text-heavy RPG, and a visual novel. You play Michael, who is given a chance to “relocate” to 2048, where aging can be stopped and terminal illnesses can be cured. If he so chooses, Michael never has to die.
Further, in the world of 2048, there is no hunger, poverty or war. From the look of the trailers, however, this utopia could have some serious flaws.
Supposedly Wonderful Future is due to be released for Windows, Mac and Linux April 18th on Steam.
