Where the Water Tastes Like Wine

Narrative adventure game Where the Water Tastes Like Wine is now available for PC via Steam. You probably know it as the game where famous musician Sting plays a Wolf. Yes, it’s that kind of game.

Taking place in Depression era United States, Where the Water Tastes Like Wine features an unorthodox art-style mixing illustrations with a 3D overworld map. The player essentially roams the United States and interacts with different strangers, collecting different stories and then re-telling them for new dialogue. Essentially, the player is looking to use different stories to satisfy the different characters they meets.

The stories themselves comprise of a wide range of tales written by different authors while the characters are voiced by talent like Kimberly Brooks (Mass Effect), Dave Fennoy (Telltale’s The Walking Dead) and Elizabeth Maxwell (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild) among others. The soundtrack is composed by Ryan Ike and promises a faithfully haunting rendition of the era.
