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 Starry Nights Bundle is the latest collection of dazzling games from Indie Royale. There are five featured games: Sword of the Stars: The Pit, Bientôt l'été, Tower Wars, Sentinel and QRTH-PHYL. There's also a great bonus album from Ser Flash - Project 2012 - for those who beat the $8 price.

Highest Rated (2 agree) 7/10
This is by no means the greatest offering from Tale of Tales, but it's a great way to spend a few hours.
It's a game to meander through. It's a game to play with a bottle of wine and an open mind. It's something to relax to and experience. For that reason it makes a great addition to any indie game library.
Anything that stands in opposition of your usual gaming experience gets my thumbs up.
