Many games are about vanquishing great evil, saving worlds, and charting undiscovered and fantastic worlds. It’s rare for a game to revolve around the simple and daily pleasures in life. The Longest Road on Earth is a game that does just that. It thrives to capture poetic moments from a life of daily rituals and customs. The Longest Road on Earth is currently in Kickstarter and it needs your help.
Road on Earth, developed by Brainwash Gang has recently won the Best
Basque Game Award in the FS Play International Contest for indie games of the
Fun & Serious Games Festival. It’s already being noticed, and as of writing
this they are already 40% of the way towards their goal of $10k. But what is it
It’s a story told over several black and white pixelated episodes.
Players will walk and breathe with its characters as they go about their lives,
and you’ll experience first-hand the beauty and purpose in every day routines
such as gathering a bouquet of flowers, turning the lights on every morning or
having a cup of coffee in your porch.
“We wanted to tell a story based on the everyday
life of a person. The player has to fill in the gaps of the story. An old lady
sitting in a porch and a young guy looking through a window in a coffee shop
tell us different things (though they might be thinking about the same thing).
In the end, if we remove the epic side of our lives… how would they look
like? What would people think of ourselves?”
