Sunset by Tale of Tales is a game about exploring, thinking, and dreaming. A narrative work of art with a strong female protagonist, who gets caught up in a situation that is everything but normal. The only normality she gets is when she is working. However, she expresses her emotions, thoughts, and beliefs in different formats.
“It’s 1972 and a military coup has rocked Anchuria, a small country in Latin America. As a result, you, Angela Burnes, US citizen, are trapped in the metropolitan capital of San Bavón. Your paradise has turned into a warzone. To make ends meet, you take up a job as a housekeeper. Every week, an hour before sunset, you clean the swanky bachelor pad of the wealthy Gabriel Ortega. You are given a number of tasks to do, but the temptation to go through his stuff is irresistible. And what is he up to? As you get to know your mysterious absent employer better, you are sucked into a rebellious plot against the notorious dictator who rules the country with an iron fist.”
A game about so many important topics that one cannot list them all here. Starting with identity vis politics through to family and love. A melancholic, nostalgic work that inspires. A declaration of love to art, the beauty, and the sublime. A masterpiece.
