If you’re into story-driven games, or experiences that are driven entirely by music, you owe it yourself to play Ephemerid. Not playing it is doing yourself a disservice.
It’s a story about a mayfly, and his only day on Earth. It’s a roller-coaster of emotion, with love, loss and excitement all combined together to create a seriously compelling narrative. Rock, drum’n’bass, and even atmospheric electronica are thrown together, and it works beautifully.
It drove me to tears in parts, and I honestly haven’t played a game that uses music this powerfully in a very long time.
