Playism has announced that the first chapter story adventure by WSS playground, Boyhood’s End, has been delayed to Spring 2024 from its previously stated Fall 2023 release window. The game is planned to receive chapter updates and will launch for PC via Steam.
This serialized juvenile science fiction horror by the producer of Needy Streamer Overload and developer of Chloe’s Requiem occurs in a world ruled by the mechanical overlord “R. Karellen.”
Every aspect of one’s life is assessed with a human score, resulting in R. Karellen determining each facet of everybody’s life, including “academic and professional careers, romantic interests, to one’s daily meals.”
Protagonist Giovanni has the lowest human score across all humanity, enabling him to receive “special treatment” for everything and get bullied relentlessly online and in person. One day, everybody starts attacking Giovanni under the justification of raising his human score to make him more human, causing him to escape onto a driverless train on the galactic railroad alongside the famous genius student Campanella.
Giovanni ends up on a journey to find the “Crimson Southern Cross,” located at the farthest edge of the universe. The two of them will encounter “great leaders of the past and pull reckless and destructive “pranks” on them all.” Everything will eventually culminate as they face the end of their childhood.
