Last Day of June

Gameplay Mechanics

Basic Mechanics

The gameplay is relatively simple. With only a handful of controls and no complex combinations, the player is encouraged to explore (in third person) what the developers term an ‘artistic experience’, where the player will ‘solve emotionally challenging puzzles’. The game has twenty-one achievements, each of which are described throughout this guide to allow you to obtain them on your first playthrough. Three of the achievements count as hidden and are easy to miss, but they are noted in this guide so that you will find them in the most convenient way. There are also memories associated with each character that you will discover as you play them. I have included detailed descriptions of how to find them as you go through the game to avoid needlessly repeating aspects of the story.

Stuck on loading screen?

If you find yourself stuck on this screen after reloading the game, read on…

Although it is assumed that most people will complete the game in one sitting, it is possible to play for a short period of time and return to where you left off later. However, keep in mind that the game saves at specific points in the story. You will need to progress at least beyond the prologue in order for the game to save when you quit. Usually the game saves after completion of each chapter (The Kid, The Best Friend, The Hunter, etc). During one playthrough on PC I discovered a bug associated with the save function, whereby the game menu fails to load if you quit and reload at any point beyond completion of the prologue. This is due to the save function being poorly optimised for the PC platform. Thankfully the bug is fixable by playing the game in compatibility mode. To do this go to the game folder, located here by default:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\june

Right click on ‘LastDayofJune.exe’ and select properties. Select the compatibility tab and under ‘Compatibility Mode’ tick the box for ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 7. You should now be able to leave the game at any point without being faced with an endless loading screen upon your return.

Carl and June are a young couple living the perfect life together in an idyllic mediterranean-esque rural village. The sun always seems to shine on them, but on a day when their first child begins to manifest through June’s pregnancy, the rain begins to fall leading to her catastrophic death in a car crash. Where light once shone now sorrow overwhelms. Carl is left alone in an irrevocably marred world, powerless to do anything other than dwell on his sudden misery. His thoughts linger on the moment of the crash; what could he have done to save her? As time and space seem to cease, a number of portals reveal themselves through June’s paintings, allowing Carl to trace the events of the tragedy from the perspective of those who played some key role leading up to the crash. With this unexpected power, he must now work through the memories contained within the portals to save his beloved June and their child.
