Life story in Wayward Strand
Wayward Strand is an adventure game developed by Ghost Pattern. The game will focus on exploiting the content aspect through the interaction mechanism. From there, the game will reveal to the player pieces of information so that they can self-assemble them into a complete content. This is also a common narrative style in games that focus on plot content.
Reportedly, the plot of Wayward Strand will not revolve around scary mysteries or painful memories. In fact, the game will exploit the very everyday aspects of life. Specifically, the life of each patient being treated at the hospital.
Besides exploiting a humane and warm theme, Wayward Strand also subtly puts the player in the perspective of a young girl who is innocent and curious about everything around. This makes the game’s storytelling more sincere, innocent and curious than ever.
Besides the lovely graphics of the game, the entire sound is carefully and meticulously designed. Especially the voice acting part, Wayward Strand has a quality voice actor cast to ensure the personality and psychology of each character is portrayed as clearly and realistically as possible.
Time waits for no one
Time in the game does not wait for anyone. There are too many stories for players to learn but too little time. Just like everyday life. People continue to live their lives. Only you have to wander around and try to learn their stories.
The patients here are very large and diverse. There will be people willing to share with you, there will be people who are rude to you, there will be eccentric weirdos. But what they all have in common is that they all have their own ideals, goals, and desires. They will have a distinct personality and a special behavior that will only appear once at that exact time and space.
Because of that, each new game will bring a completely different experience. The next play will give the player new information that the player missed in the previous play. Players will inadvertently discover something new at each new turn. That’s what’s interesting about Wayward Strand’s storytelling.
Exploring the inner human
As a journalist, the player’s task is simply to gather as much information as possible. This is not easy because you will have to manage and track the daily activities of the patients to be able to reach them. You can follow them to see where they go and what they do during the day, talk and discuss with them about a certain issue. You can even eavesdrop on their conversations with other patients. There will be secret information that you can only get by eavesdropping.
Each character in the game will have a complex inner world, you will have to find information and put them together to better understand their world. From there you will inadvertently realize something about them.
Maybe they’re not as obnoxious as you think they are, maybe they’re just trying some mental and physical pain, or they simply know they don’t have much time left in the world. Above is the most basic information about the game Wayward Strand that will be released in September.
