What reviewers say:
“It isn’t easy to capture how overwhelming and complicated and fraught with tension travelling can be, but Wanderlust does a great job of showcasing the essence of it, and the transformative power travelling can have.” – 9/10 – SA Gamer
“A different experience from your run-of-the-mill video game, and should appeal to anyone who is an avid traveler or wants to explore some unknown parts of the world from home.
The stories are engaging and presented nicely, having enough of an impact on me to start downloading travel apps and plan trips.”
8/10 – The Sixth Axis
“An unrushed title for a mature gamer. The devs don’t want to reward us with experience points or perks. Instead, they offer a rare reward. Knowledge.” CD-Action Magazine
“Hopefully, this will be a point in case that reading and literature aren’t dying, just transitioning into a different medium.”
8.5/10 – Game Pressure
What is Wanderlust Travel Stories?
300,000+ words of adventure, 12+ hours of playtime.
Real-world locations gorgeously illustrated with original, bespoke photography.
Your mood, stress, and fatigue impact the way you observe the world.
Grounded and relatable stories – four travelers driven by hope and curiosity, the search for love, or the need to deal with grief.
Inspired by real-life journeys, created by a team of travelers, journalists, artists, and game developers.
Documentary, journalism, slice of life – come face to face with the melting polar caps, the impact of the tourism industry, the meaning of life.
But perhaps most importantly, Wanderlust Travel Stories is slow gaming. You don’t have to rush. You don’t have to fight. This is your journey and you decide the pace of your adventure. Relax to the calming original soundtrack. Give yourself space to think and feel.
Wanderlust Travel Stories is available on PC and Mac via Steam and GOG.com, also available on iOS, iPadOS and tvOS.
