Experience an American folk tale throughout the country, find stories and spread the word about the people you encounter on Where The Water Tastes Like Wine, releasing on February 28 for the PC. Developed by Dim Bulb Games and published by Good Shepherd Entertainment and Serenity Forge, the game features a huge cast of well-known writers and voice actors along with an unique visual style.
The game first introduced itself over a year ago, and there hasn’t been much information about it since. But, aside from its premise, we are aware of its incredible cast: the musician Sting, Dave Fennoy (The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series), Cissy Jones (Firewatch), Kimberly Brooks (Mass Effect) and more have granted their own voices into the game.
Along with the actors, tons of writers and journalists have contributed their own original stories to Where The Water Tastes Like Wine, including Gita Jackson, Austin Walker, Cara Ellison, Olivia Wood, Bruno Dias and many more.
Recently, the studio revealed some more information about the game on Twitter: the game it’s meant to be seen as a collection of short stories, rather than a regular narrative-driven experience. The soundtrack has been performed by Ryan Ike, using “live performers, covering genres such as folk, bluegrass, blues, jazz, gospel, mariachi, cowboy music, and traditional Diné (Navajo) music”.
In terms of game length and content, Where The Water Tastes Like Wine has sixteen main characters with 3-4 chapter stories, and over 203 smaller encounters. “As you tell the stories from your collection, they’ll get passed around from person to person and grow and change, as is the manner of stories. They’ll become wilder and weirder and better stories when you hear them come around again”, the studio stated on the thread.
Where The Water Tastes Like Wine will be available on PC in February 28th. There have been no official dates yet, but the devs also stated that a PS4 version is in process at the moment. For more information, make sure to visit the official site.
