Live the same day over and over again.
Developer Svajunas Zemaitas announced that they are working on a new game that allows gamers to live the same day again and again. Garbage Day is described as an open-world game that allows players to explore an immersive interactive world with almost limitless possibilities. The only catch? Once you die during gameplay, or if the day ends, you go right back to the morning of that same day. Maddening, right?
Despite this being the main plot of the game, the developer teases that there is a way to stop going back to the beginning of the day, but figuring out how is said to be a huge struggle. The game is currently in the green light process on Steam and will be approved if it is given enough support by gamers. If the game does see enough support during the green light process, it will be released in the third quarter of this year.
The game is said to allow you to do anything from watching a VHS tape, pouring cereal, talking to neighbors, or even going to the grocery store and buying food. Since the player goes back to the same morning at the end of the day, gamers can just sit back and watch a VHS tape with some cereal one day, and drive around town trying to run over citizens the next. The day will never be the same, unless of course you want it to be.
While the novelty of re-living the same day over and over again might be appealing to gamers for a short while, I see this game as more of a joke than anything else. In this respect it is kind of like Goat Simulator, fun for a few laughs and a few crazy open world rampages to relieve stress; but ultimately nothing that gamers will want to play for very long. The idea of being able to get out of the time loop is a slightly enticing incentive to keep playing, but once you accomplish that, what’s the point?
What do you think of the game Garbage Day? How long do you think you would be able to play it before it starts getting boring? Do you hope it is green-lighted and released on Steam? Let us know in the comments below!
