What a wreck...emotionally speaking
The Pixel Hunt, AKA the studio behind bafta-nominated Bury Me, My Love, have released their new visual novel The Wreck. The game is out today on Switch.
The Wreck is a mature 3D visual novel about sisterhood, motherhood, grief and survival. Players follow failed screenwriter Junon as she attempts to make it through the most pivotal day in her life, navigating difficult conversations and piecing together where things went wrong.
With her mother in critical condition and her mind on the point of collapse, Junon must relive the past, alter the present, and embrace the future - or else her story will end in a wreck. The game received an Honourable Mention for Excellence in Narrative from the IGF in 2023.
