I’m not sure if a game as sad, sharp, and real-life-serious as the critically-acclaimed Actual Sunlight has ever been released on a major console, but I have no doubt that the PS Vita is exactly where it belongs. With strong and memorable writing, a classic Japanese RPG style, and full-screen CG artwork, I’m hopeful that Actual Sunlight will feel right at home.
I love PS Vita, and this was the platform that I wanted to bring it to more than anything.
Plus, with a tweaked interface that allows for greater clarity on interactions, as well as larger and much smoother text for an optimal reading experience on the go, this is the best version of Actual Sunlight yet!
Here are a few cool facts about the game:
- Fully set in Toronto, Canada, with environments modeled after real-life places. And references galore!
- Was originally made in RPG Maker VX ACE, and now reconstructed in Unity 5!
- Perhaps the first game to be for 18+ players — not because of sex or violence, but because of being about regular, unhappy adult life!
If you’re a fan of the dramatic, narrative-driven adventures and visual novels that have become a hallmark of PS Vita, I hope you’ll take a moment to check out this deeply personal and emotionally impactful game about love, depression, and the corporation.
I hope you will think it is something special.
