A brand new teaser was dropped at the moment as properly. In How to Say Goodbye, gamers will discover themselves a number of moments after their dying in a type of limbo, the place they have to recount their journey as they enter right into a world unknown to them.
The solely technique to the opposite aspect is to just accept what’s occurred. It sounds straightforward on paper, however accepting your personal dying? That’s certain to be troublesome. Players must make the ghosts realise that what occurred can’t be modified and that the one manner is ahead. Only then, will they make it to the opposite aspect, the place quite a few spirits await.

However, in most video games, it is reduced to a violent act: death is used as a metaphor to indicate to the player in an extremely binary way that he loses or wins, that he exists or does not exist anymore. We wanted to approach the subject in a more subtle and positive way, with sensitivity.”
Crossing over will likely be robust. Players must make use of various components positioned on a grid to be able to information the ghost to the exit image. Naturally, this fashion is stuffed with obstacles together with different ghosts who couldn’t get to the opposite aspect and won’t let anybody else go.
These unking ghosts are known as spleens and so they appear to be below the management of the wizard, a being about whom not a lot is thought. His affect, though, will be seen all through the world of How to Say Goodbye.
