Swedish indie developer Markus Oljemark is excited to announce the official release date for The Girl of Glass: A Summer Bird’s Tale, a charming point-and-click adventure mixed with turn-based combat.
The Girl of Glass is a wonderfully-charming coming-of-age story set in a fictional mid-20th-century European country. You play as Kristal, a girl literally made of glass, as she goes on an adventure to try and understand herself as well as find the true meaning of her life. A classic theme for many coming-of-age stories.
Kristal worked and lived in a circus, where she remained unappreciated. One day, however, a boy appears in her life and convinces her to run away with him. Eventually, this fragile girl turns into a strong and bold lady that could overcome anything.
This emotional game has an amazing orchestral soundtrack, plus the background and environment is one-of-a-kind. You will encounter dialogue options as well where you have to make choices that will affect the game.
The Girl of Glass also features turn-based combat, believe it or not. The game’s fighting system is rewarding, and it allows you to gain new skills as you continue your journey. Each battle you encounter is like a puzzle, wherein you have to figure out the strengths and weaknesses of each enemy. If you are able to predict the next move of your opponent, victory will be assured.
The game was initially announced way back in 2016, as it was a part of the Square Enix Collective program. It garnered a lot of positive feedback! As a matter of fact, players gave it 91% positive recommendations. It’s definitely easy to see why fans love this game so much, though, given what we know about the game and what we can see ourselves.
That being said, the first chapter for The Girl of Glass is completely free on Steam. No worries though if you decide to get the full game after the demo, as your progress will be transferred over upon purchase.
The Girl of Glass: A Summer Bird’s Tale is scheduled to launch on September 22, 2020. At the moment, it’s only set for Steam, but other gaming platforms are sure to follow suit after.
