Fresh off a much-lauded appearance at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, Last Day of June has been hailed by critics including CNET, IGN and Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller as one of the best experiences of the show. Now Italian independent studio Ovosonico and indie publisher 505 Games offer deeper insight into the painterly world of the upcoming single-player journey with a trailer.

The Last Day of June trailer reveals core mechanics of the meaningful narrative, in which players discover portals to the past that allow them to unlock and become characters intertwined in June’s story. Each character will present new emotionally challenging puzzles to solve, as June’s bereaved husband Carl attempts to turn back time and save her life.

Last Day of June will launch on August 31, retailing at £14.99.
