Whisking us off to 1960s America, Best Month Ever! is a new story driven adventure which focuses on the life of a single mother. That tale is now ready to commence, as the game releases on Xbox and PC.
Available right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC through Steam is Best Month Ever!.
Being an adult means making decisions; tough decisions. And it’s that which is the main thrust of Best Month Ever! – a story driven narrative adventure which deals with a whole ton of emotions, taking you through the highs, the lows and everything in between as you attempt to navigate your son through the madness of the modern world.
Priced at £16.74 from the Xbox Store, this one comes from the Klabater team, in collaboration with the Warsaw Film School Video Game & Film Production Studio. It’s with a combination of these teams in which this point and click road trip unfolds, as you help Louise – the mother – ensure that her son, Mitch, is set up for life in the best possible way.
A whole gamut of emotions awaits the player in Best Month Ever! as this 1960s road trip plays out.
The key game features that are found within will follow along lines of…
- Buckle Up for the Best Month Ever! – Set in 1960s America, you play Louise, a single mother working as a waitress suddenly diagnosed with an acute terminal illness. With one month left to live, she gathers her son Mitch and embarks on a road trip across the United States to expose him to the realities of a rapidly changing world and raise him against the ticking clock.
- Shape Mitch’s Future – To keep track of Mitch’s growth as a person, each choice you make adds positive or negative influence to three statistics: Righteousness, Confidence, and Relations. This changes your story on the go, making each playthrough feel unique – the game offers 9 different endings, each one showing a different version of the man Mitch becomes. So not only will Louise and Mitch’s fates be subject to change, but also their mutual relationship. Best Month Ever is, above all, the story of the emotional, challenging, and unique bond that can only exist between a mother and son.
- Different Outcomes – Turn on, tune in, drop out… and decide! Different choices result in one of 9 different endings for the game. After that, it’s up to the player to determine what kind of person Mitch will become and what exactly happened during his memorable journey through the USA with his mother – it’s no coincidence that Best Month Ever! is releasing just two days before #mothersday in the U.S.
- Weird 60s Trip – What a time to travel it was! Canned Heat was singing about “Going Up the Country” while Bob Dylan asked “How does it feel” to have no home and live on the street. Louise and Mitch travel across the continental United States, meeting bikers, hippies, Klansmen, Native Americans, and far-out wanderers of all sorts. Can you dig it?
We’re currently working on review and will be sure to deliver our thoughts very soon. If you wish to get point and clicking though, then you’ll find Best Month Ever! purchasable and downloadable from the Xbox Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S and via the Steam page on PC.
Take part in a roller coaster of emotions with Louise embarking on a road trip of a lifetime through the late 1960s USA, trying to show her son Mitch how to navigate the often cruel modern world.
