Supposedly Wonderful Future Turns Out Not to be So Wonderful

“A sci-fi narrative game about screens, small rooms, and existential dread”

Platforms: Mac, Windows, Linux

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.

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 and hardware 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.
