An enjoyable take on visual novels and other story-driven games, Where the Water Tastes Like Wine is a pleasant little game indeed.
This game is visually interesting.
JIM GOD DAMN IT PLAY ICONOCLASTS!! I BET YOU’LL LOVE IT
Backseat Masturbator Simulator 2018. 10/10 would do it again.
Stephen Hawking died. 🙁
The game has a pretty neat premise and I like seeing my stories grow more fantastic as I go across America. But the game’s UI ends up feeling VERY unfinished and the map, despite being huge, ends up feeling really thrown together. Some of the art feels rushed too. The whistling mechanic used to move faster is frustrating cause it overpowers the awesome awesome music. I wish so many aspects of it didn’t feel unfinished. Also I thought the hitching in the map was just me, but Jim seems to be experiencing it too.
Can’t wait for a bunch of snobby dickheads to mock and insult the game on the grounds of “It’s not a real video game!!! why can’t everything conform to what i like!!!”
I really like ‘normal’ Jim Sterling. Seems like a really cool dude.
Jim, it’s Pi day godammit, where’s your math video?!
Though this may not be my kind of thing as a game, I absolutely love the presentation.
The over-world map kind of reminds me of those old school Final Fantasy maps hah. Large characters and tiny little towns/villages. Glad to see a story heavy games still being developed. After all “Single player games are dead” 😉
Glad to see something besides a shooter.
WHAT?! Jim talking about something GOOD!?! Found on STEEEEEEEME!!?!??!??!!?!?
Some people might not like this sort of game but at least it doesn’t cause school shootings.
But! _There are no cats in America!_
Ghost Of A Tale is out of Early Access Jim.
So… you know… do that and stuff.
Jim learned British English so he counts every word that has a “z” instead of an “s” as mis-spelled.
I’ve lived in America all my life, have driven coast to coast, and have literally never seen a single giant hitchhiking skeleton. This game is fake news.
Honestly, I love the idea of “American Fantasy” – classic Americana iconography mixed with the fantastic in a melting pot of tropes and archetypes (just how America is a melting pot of cultures and identities). So Folk tales, essentially. So honestly this looks exactly like my kind of thing. If it tells a good story, the technical aspects don’t bother me too much (although those typos sound a bit worrying).
You should read Mark Twain if you have not had the chance. He’s quite entertaining.
Why are all characters black?
