Sigh... Travelling can be such a hassle these days. All the paperwork and constant planning needed to make sure everything is in order, and in the end, something will probably go wrong anyway. It would be so much easier to just stay home...
Well, we are in luck, because the Swedish company Jovian Industries is developing a new game which is all about travelling the world and then blogging about the experiences.
So, to summarize, I can travel without leaving my couch? Sold!
Heart.Papers.Border. is a new optimistic strategy game that focuses on travelling and the freedom that comes with that. The premise of the game is that you are a freelance adventurer that wants to experience all that the world of Heart has to offer.
Of course, all these countries are different, and as you travel you will learn more. In the end it all comes together in your travel blog. Yes, you do have a travel blog that you can expand upon as you travel. As you do this you will become more popular and you’ll find that you have gained the power to influence people for the better. For example, why not make them demand that the governments should be more open with each other? You have always been an optimist and have dreamed about a borderless world to travel. As you play the game you will come to realise your influence could make that dream come true.
The game sports a lovely retro futuristic art style with beautiful colors and great aesthetics, making a unique game even more unique! The color scheme alone is enough to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, meant in the best possible way. This trip will definitely be worth the long flights, embarrassing security checks, and countless hours waiting at the airports without proper WiFi.
The game has been slated for a summer 2017 release and will be arriving to PC, Mac, Linux, Apple app store and Android market with as many languages as possible. We here at Spearhead Nordic can't wait to get our hands on it!
