Blue June is a 2.5D narrative-driven psychological horror adventure where a young woman tries to get to the root of what’s causing her strange recurring nightmares.
In Blue June you follow the story of a young college student named June who is tormented by surreal nightmares that seem to be linked to her past. These nightmares are beginning to seep into her real life and it may not be long until June can no longer tell the difference between the two.
The demo build of Blue June takes around 20 minutes to play through and features two nightmare sections at the beginning and end with a real-life section in the middle. The nightmare sections have a nice mixture of puzzles, surreal oddity and freaky monsters, while the real-life section allows you to learn more about June, her life and her story.
June’s walking and running animations feel a little odd at the moment and it would be nice if you could run right from the start, but other than that it’s a promising game. It’s got a very intriguing story and switching between the nightmares and the real world is a great touch that allows for a lot more character development than most horror games. A 2.5D horror adventure with plenty of depth.
