WANNABEEZ – THE GAME
Genre: Tell Tale
Platforms: Console – PC
Language: ITA – ENG
Wannabeez – The game tells us the crazy story that puts together two characters that don’t seem to have any links between them, till each one finds himself living in the body of the other.
The protagonists will be continually between the desire to reveal their true self and the need to make sense of the new condition by trying to take full advantage from it. They’ll have to make choices that will lead to new and disturbing scenarios.
What will a fireman who has just lost his leg in a serious accident, do if he suddenly finds himself in the body of a swimmer in the first year of college? What brings together the two characters thrown into one another’s body?
The game is presented as a telltale game, where a storytelling characterized by numerous strokes and plot twists is the driving element. The story unfolds through a series of situations that the player is called to overcome by skill tests, choices – often moral and gathering and managing information etc, sometimes favoring the impetus of the “guest” personality, sometimes following the conventional and socially acceptable action of the host character.
Each choice, every action, brings with it consequences and an unexpected development of the narrative path.
