Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1, the surreal jazz-infused follow-up to developer Cosmo D’s acclaimed, wonderfully off-kilter first-person jazz-hotel adventure The Norwood Suite, will be heading to PC, Mac, and Linux on 15th May.
Tales From Off-Peak City Vol. 1 has technically been available for a couple of months now, but only to people subscribed to Humble Choice. Soon, though, non-subscribers can experience its peculiar charms through Steam and itch.io, and it looks to be another absolute treat.
“It’s a hazy Sunday morning on the corner of July Avenue and Yam Street,” explains the game’s Steam page in the spirit of scene-setting, “Caetano Grosso, a former saxophone player and longtime pizza-maker, is just getting his pizza oven warmed up. Orders are trickling in, and he needs someone to help with the deliveries. You sense an opportunity, but unbeknownst to him, what you’re really after is his old saxophone, and you’re going to get it one way or another.”
