Visualizing a bittersweet story told through a welcoming, painterly world, the role-playing exploration game showcases the beauty of life and love, but also the contradictions of loss.

From an all-star collaboration of creators including critically acclaimed director Massimo Guarini (Murasaki Baby, Shadow of the Damned, Naruto: Rise of a Ninja), award-winning musician and record producer Steven Wilson, and Jess Cope (animator on Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” and director for Metallica’s “Here Comes Revenge” music video), Last Day of June aims to be a true artistic innovation.

From an all-star collaboration of creators including acclaimed director Massimo Guarini (Murasaki Baby, Shadow of the Damned, Naruto: Rise of a Ninja), award-winning musician and record producer Steven Wilson, and Jess Cope (animator on Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” and director for Metallica’s “Here Comes Revenge” music video), Last Day of June blends multiple genres of art to offer a meaningful and creative experience that will resonate with a broad audience of players.

Last Day of June is a poignant single-player journey that progresses participants from a viewer joining Carl and June on what begins as a magical outing to their favorite spot, to a character deeply intertwined in the narrative, as they try to unlock the sequence of events that could save the day – and June’s life. In this cinematic experience, players will solve emotionally challenging puzzles in an attempt to turn back time, compelling them to ask themselves “What would you do to save the one you love?”


Italian independent studio Ovosonico offers deeper insight into the painterly world of the upcoming single-player journey with a new trailer. This cinematic glimpse inside Last Day of June reveals core mechanics of the meaningful narrative, in which players discover portals to the past that allow them to unlock and become characters intertwined in June’s story. Each character will present new emotionally challenging puzzles to solve, as June’s bereaved husband Carl attempts to turn back time and save her life.

Ovosonico and 505 also announced Last Day of June will launch globally on August 31 as a digital download for PS4 and on Steam for PC, retailing at $19.99. Pre-orders for both platforms begin today. The PS4 pre-order, which is currently 25% off, offers buyers an exclusive console theme that depicts Carl and June in the celebrated style that sets Last Day of June apart as a true artistic vision.

New song “Pariah” featuring the beautiful voice of Ninet Tayeb, as heard in the new Last Day of June trailer, will be included in the forthcoming Steven Wilson record, “To the Bone”.  Additional information about the album, which will be released on Aug. 18, can be found by visiting here.
