Earthshine from Sometimes You tells the story of two travelers who journey through the desert in search of the Fields of Oblivion. You’ll be joining Talia and Inar, who are being driven by what the legend tells of the mysterious and mystical flowers that only grow there. Why? Because it’s said that those flowers are so powerful, they can heal any wounds, can grant immortality, and can even resurrect the dead!
A visual novel is a game in which you’ll be taking on an experience where the game’s story is experienced visually, hence the name of this particular genre. The game is voice acted in Russian, so unless you’re familiar with the language, you’ll be relying on the English subtitles to follow along. This is a shorter type of visual novel that should take you a couple of hours at most to complete.
The game features a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy waiting for you at the end of your journey. It’s a short list with 11 Gold trophies leading up to adding a new shiny Platinum to your collection. As expected, since this is a visual novel, the trophies are tied to the different story routes you can take along the way. There aren’t that many choices to make, so as long as you pay attention, you won’t need to replay this one too many times. If you need some extra help, you can check out this Earthshine Trophy Guide.
Earthshine is a game that tells the story of two travelers who journey through the desert in search of the Fields of Oblivion. Your choices will guide their path and will determine what their final outcome will be. Will they be able to sort out the obstacles on their journey? As for extras, since this one is indeed a visual novel, that means you can expect there to be a Gallery section as a bonus area on the menu to explore. This includes all 20 different special images created for the game’s main story segments, with some of them being variations of others depending on the – few – choices that you end up making along the way. The game features voice acting in Russian, with subtitles in English. Earthshine is out on PlayStation 5 for a budget price of only $4.99. There’s also a PlayStation 4 version of the game available as a separate purchase for the same price.
