Far to Close / Aproape Departe


You go outside, grab a pretzel, or meet a friend, you find a black cat, or it starts raining, you grab a drink at a local bar, or ...

Living in a city usually brings along a set of day to day decisions that can sometimes lead to entirely unexpected experiences. The game makes the players explore together the different directions and stories that compose a city.
