We're making this game for you. So we really want to know.

평가

Fast company - "Bientôt l’Été resonates like an accomplished painting or a good piece of music."

The Verge - "Finally, a video game as artistic and hard to understand as French films."

Akimbo - "I was at times elated by the beauty of the sentiments expressed and, at other times, surprised by how dark it could feel."

Bientôt l’été is a videogame for two players. Two players who pretend to be lovers. They pretend to be lovers separated from each other by lightyears of deep space. They have lonely walks along the shore of a simulated ocean, thinking wistful thoughts of each other. Thoughts from ancient Earth literature by Marguerite Duras.


The empty beach, the strong wind, the gentle music and a small colony of electric seagulls are their only companions. Yet their heart is full and their mind confused. Walk along the shore, until they meet the emptiness.


When it all becomes too much, they run towards each other. Enabled by intergalactic networks, they touch each other’s holographic bodies in cyberspace. A surreal game of chess becomes the apparatus through which they, man and woman, can talk. The words they have were given to them, as they have always been to lovers everywhere.


The sea remains, tugging at their hearts when not at their hairs and clothes, as it itself is tugged by the virtual moon. And as great as the desire for the other may be, they cannot stay away from the wind and the waves and the sand. Every time they find a new treasure. An abandoned tennis field. An heap of coal. A dead dog. Ordinary. Absurd. Meaningless. Yet comforting.


Enter a café, exit a villa, enter a casino, exit the ruin of an ancient colonial mansion. We know this is not real. So it doesn’t surprise us. Nothing surprises us. It doesn’t matter when you feel the pain of love. Of being in love, of falling in love, of leaving in love. There is no such thing as time. There is only love. And it never stops. No matter how much it hurts.

One night, I was extremely bored and tired and saw this game in my libary, I decided to install it seeing as I had only played "1 minutes" as steam likes to call it, And the only fun I had whilst playing was masturbating to the female characters visible boobs in the select a character screen whilst having the song that goes like "I wish I was special" playing in the background.

Couldn't play with my friend - the netcode didn't work. Overall a boring, pretentious game.

For the record, I have played this game, but for some reason Steam isn't showing my actual time put into it.

"A work of art"

Yes, I have to admit that Bientôt l'été was indeed a work of art. But that's the exact reason this game is practically unplayable. I gave it a little while, hoping to get somewhere, but instead I just sat there and played chess while rereading the same dialogue over and over. I don't know whether this game gets more interesting or enjoyable later on, but from what I have played, I can tell you that I'm glad I bought this during last year's Summer Sale, because for $9.99, Bientôt l'été shouldn't be payed for until it goes on sale... between 80-100% off.

I never understod this game. I watched and read reviews about this game so maybe I could be able to do so. I played it, and I was really excited about giving it a try, but after some time.. I became hopeless. So here is what I think the porpuse of the game was:
*Since it is a walk simulator (and I'm not very familiar with them) I found some kind of peace but the lack of communication/interaction made me feel awkward and very dissapointed since the multiplayer option never worked for me. - you might find peace but in a weird way.
*The story... doesn't even have one. - maybe that's what the game wants you to do, to build/imagine your own. (then you better read a book or play Minecraft, or something like that).
*Music is okay and it indeed relaxes you but there's always something else that relaxes you.
*The controls.. arghh... just terrible.

<<Games like Lifeless Planet and Proteus have much more to offer, they lead you where they want to, and they indeed give you different feelings such as fear or excitement, Bientôt l'été gives you freedom, gives you a choice.. but after that, nothing gets to happen>>

(If you still want to try it) Buy it on sale, or never buy it at all.

If you want a very foreign feeling game that is as pointless as all those bad french jokes americans use. Buy this game.
Beautiful ethereal music score. Still have no clue what I was doing.

If you want a foreign game that makes more sense and has an end, but is very very foreign, go get "The Void".
It's russian.

Waste of money. Maybe I couldn't figure out how to play it but long story short...It's not a game. It's a nice artpiece if you could understand it. Also, it runs on multiple people playing from different places and since its not a widely played game, a lot of the time there isn't much for you to do or explore in the game.

While all games are inherently art, this game is moreso a piece of art than it is a game. Very abstract yet hauntingly beautiful.

i highly recommend Bientôt l'été, the game about escaping the frightening low-FPS land of Outside and holing yourself up in a box-like shack, "Waiting for a partner" as the game itself puts it, staring daggers at a wooden chessboard, too apathetic to drink or even smoke. I don't wear a hoodie when I do that IRL tho so i'm giving it a thumbs-down until this immersion-breaking oversight is rectified.

No... Just no.

Really this isn't a game nor simulator it is just a pointless thing that never should have been made.
No offence to the creator/creators but it just doesn't need a price for this is just something that deserves a refund button.
