Developer Un Je Ne Sais Quoi has offered a first look a Dordogne, an absolutely beautiful narrative adventure about long forgotten childhood summers that’s due to arrive on Switch and PC some time next year.
As the game begins, 32-year-old Mimi returns to Dordogne, and the home of her recently deceased grandmother, where she begins to reflect on the summers of her youth. “In this colourful region, full of wonderful scents and feelings,” says Un Je Ne Sais Quoi, “Mimi will immerse herself back into her childhood memories, and see once again through the eyes of the little girl who marvelled at everything.”
What follows is an adventure split across two timelines; in the present, Mimi will explore her grandmother’s home, rifling through souvenirs and solving puzzles, while in the past, ten-year-old Mimi will face her own challenges, from forest walks and climbing to kayaking and cave explorations. “We hope that these slices of life, from the most trivial to the most symbolic, can make you remember your own positive childhood memories”, says Un Je Ne Sais Quoi.
