Annapurna Interactive and developer Joel McDonald have announced Hindsight a self-styled narrative exploration game revealed at the Nintendo Indie World showcase. The title is set to release on Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Windows PC, via Steam, sometime in 2021. Check out a stylistic and emotive trailer below!
Details on Hindsight are scarce, but the concept of Hindsight, as seen above, revolves around a woman reliving her past memories through the objects she interacts with and allowing players to witness her perspective on events, one memory at a time. Check out a deeper synopsis of the game below:
What if the physical objects of everyday life, the possessions we hold close, were actual windows to the past? Peer into distant memories and unseen futures in Hindsight.
From the creator of Prune, Hindsight is a narrative exploration game spanning the entirety of a woman’s life, from birth to present day, as she tries to make sense of it all. Revisit her childhood home, sort through personal belongings, and step through windows to memories frozen in time.
Hindsight asks you to slow down and pay attention to the little things left behind. Piece these things together and shift your viewpoint until you find just the right perspective to pull you deeper into the past.
Long forgotten memories and dreams cascade into one another. Linger as long as you wish, but sooner or later you must come back to the present.
What will you take with you? And what will you leave behind?
As a fan of slower-paced games and prone to self-reflection from time to time, Hindsight looks to scratch a personal itch on my end within gaming, and I imagine I’m not alone in that evaluation. Here’s hoping that in the months to come, more info on Hindsight comes out.
