Travel, share stories and immerse yourself in Where the Water Tastes Like Wine.

Where the Water Tastes Like Wine is a Narrative-Adventure game about traveling, sharing stories, and surviving manifest destiny. Featuring gorgeous hand-drawn illustrations, it combines 2D visuals with a 3D overworld US map.

Wander across a folkloric Depression era United States at your own pace, meeting strangers with stories to tell. By listening, you’ll be able to collect unique stories which can then be re-told. It’s up to you to pair the right story with the needs of everyone you will encounter throughout your travels. By doing this, characters will reveal their true selves, and bestow you with the most powerful stories about their lives. Stories take on a life of their own as they grow and transform as they're told- and re-told.

Travel the Depression-Era U.S., laboring to pay your debt by learning the true stories of 16 signature characters.

Explore and encounter strange, unsettling things. Carry those tales with you, swapping them round campfires to make others open up and share their own stories. Stories you share will return to you along your journey, transformed as they've made their way around the country.

Beautiful combination of 3D overworld and hand drawn 2D illustrations.

Fully voiced characters brought to life by world-renowned voice acting talent, including Sting, Dave Fennoy and Melissa Hutchison (The Walking Dead: A Telltale Game Series), Cissy Jones (Firewatch), Kimberly Brooks (Mass Effect), Sarah Elmaleh (Gone Home), Elizabeth Maxwell (The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild), and more.

Hauntingly beautiful soundtrack arranged by Ryan Ike.

Between the music,
the pace, and the stories,
Where the Water Tastes
Like Wine taps into the

its folklore in a natural
and compelling way.
