Description

Perfect Tides is a point and click adventure game about the agony and anticipation of being a teen. Set in the year 2000, you play as Mara, an internet-obsessed young writer who lives on a so-called island paradise. Following 4 seasons of the year, you experience through Mara the beauty and silence of the island, the turmoil of family life and mainland public school, and an ever-evolving quest for love, friendship and experience.

History

Successfully funded by Kickstarter backers in 2018, Perfect Tides' development has been a labor of love, slowly growing in ambition and the richness of its world. After a 4-year development timeline, the long-anticipated game was released on 2/22/22.

Features

  • Classic 90s-style Point and Click user interface: collect inventory, interact with people and objects, and explore your island home.
  • Rich narrative and character-driven story: solve puzzles and watch the plot unfold.
  • Move through 45+ beautifully designed rooms, day and night, in 4 seasons of the year.
