Sunset is a promising indie title that will be out soon. Why haven’t we covered it yet? Well there are no excuses for that, really, but with its three main characters all being people of colour it’s right up J Station X’s street. As the next game from award-winning developers Tale of Tales (who won the IGF Nuovo Award for sensual music game Luxuria Superbia) it’s probably right up your street too.
In Sunset we play as Angela Burnes, an American tourist who is stranded in a (fictional) South American city in the early 1970s as the country is conducting revolution against a notorious dictator. Once a week, one hour before sunset, she cleans the house of wealthy, anti-regime thinker Gabriel Ortega. Angela may only clean his house for a short amount of time, but the opportunities she faces could uncover far more than you ever expected. More on Sunset after the break.
