The Flavourworks adventure is on its way to PC, hitting Steam on May 25. It follows the game’s release on iOS earlier this year, and is in keeping with the recent FMV revival, a genre once thought eternally doomed to early ‘90s CD-ROM obscurity. Richard Cobbett wrote about the genres re-emergence in a 2015 feature, spearheaded by the success of Her Story.
It’s already available to wishlist on Steam, and it’ll cost $12 / £10 with a ten percent discount at launch. Check out a new trailer below:
