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."

关于这款游戏

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.

Looks like I can't review this really, since it's to be played with someone else but goooood luck connecting to anyone :\

So what's in there once you start the game? You walk your male or female avatar on a beach. Turn around, there's a house of sorts, which will change in appearance when you enter and come out. Inside, you can sit at a chess table, drink wine and smoke, place chess pieces on the board.. with a partner in front of you (most likely an AI since noone is ever around for real) doing the same.

You go back out.. from time to time there will be random things on the beach.. like a huge pile of coal.. a wheat field.. dead seagulls.. which you briefly watch and then 'collect' the memory of (which just means it disappears and your avatar bends down like picking up a pebble, there's no inventory or anything..). Going in each direction for a little while you realize the space is rather limited, but feels bigger since it's sooo empty.

And that's pretty much it.

What is it trying to say ? No clue.
What would be different if someone else was there for real ? No clue.
Is there any point to it ? No clue.
Is there more to be seen or experienced if you stick to it ? No clue. Was too bored to find out.
Does understanding French help at all? Absolutely not - native speaker here.

I did like the nighttime sky effects (time goes by when you close your eyes). That was about it.

So I really can't recommend it. Unless you're the type to go stare at a single blotch of paint on a white canvas at a museum and go "ooooooh, that's deep".

Honestly I'm mixed about this. I think its very cool and experimental for that hipster side of me that wants games to be something more than what they are in appearance, something deeper but I think this is a little too abstract. Its... different.

I don't know what this is. I'm not sure its supposed to be.. well, anything. Its just a thing. You can engage with it I suppose. You're just supposed to explore it seems.

The game gives you some hints on controls and guides you in a subjectively meaningful way IF you close your eyes. You'll figure it out. This is definetly one of those experimental games or... interactive art? I guess. Sticky subject regarding words these days.

I'll leave you with some thoughts I had while playing. Possible interpretations. An elaborate ruse to obfuscate that in life when you close your eyes you can move faster but we are still trapped?

My favorite thought I had however was a French sentient robot stuck in their own programming in love with itself as two separate beings.

This is definitely one to ponder about. If you're one of those so called “intellectuals” Otherwise, you just walk real slowly on a beach for awhile.

当年你我漫步海边,携手相视无言。而今我在古旧的棋盘前点燃一支香烟,你却已不在。唯独香烟氲氤的烟气和你温柔着抚摸我的肩膀一样抚摸着我的肺。

It's never easy to recommend nontraditional gaming experiences as Bientôt l'été. If you love original experiences and good aesthetics, this is a very experimental and unique proposal.
