Kickstart this: The Last Time is an adventure about an old man overcoming emotional trauma
Frail and alone
The Last Time seems that it will be equal parts funny and tragic. It's an upcoming point-and-click adventure for PC and mobile and it may be worth backing on Kickstarter.
It follows an old, retired police officer called Jack Glover who suffered emotional trauma 40 years prior. You can find out what event caused this in the demo.
Anyway, as the game starts, Jack gets a phone call in his care home that thrusts him back into his past. "This phone call starts a chain of events which forces Jack back into the real world," reads the game's description.
What follows are challenges that Jack has to face despite everything his age has brought on. That includes "physical frailty, ignorance of modern technology, and, most importantly, his difficulty connecting with people."
You progress through the story by talking with people, solving non-narrative-interrupting puzzles, and making quick decisions during action sequences.
It seems the encounters range from old women fighting over Jack's love, a perilous kidnapping scene, and a docile conversation on a park bench.
There won't be any Game Over screens in The Last Time so no matter what you do the story will keep progressing. This is inspired by Telltale's and Quantic Dream's adventures that have you live with your mistakes.
If you fancy supporting The Last Time on Kickstarter then you can get a PC version of the game for £5. Higher tiers offer
