Wait! Life Is Beautiful! isn’t just a bold statement but an upcoming psychological thriller on Steam.
From [Dramatic Music Plays] – great name, and publishers GameNet, the interactive thriller covers important topics such as suicide, drawn from the developer’s own experiences and raising mental health awareness.
With the demo, Wait! Life Is Beautiful! Prologue, you get to play the protagonist, ‘living one day on the Suicide Bridge in attempts to save some desperate souls’.
Your character is an average person, exhausted from the monotony that life can sometimes be and his only escape is from helping others.
The dialogue revolves around engaging with people with suicidal tendencies and convincing them to change their ways. It’s a massive theme to cover, and if done with the correct amount of sensitivity, could be a compelling experience.
After all, a public taboo around it creates the artificial isolation of those who are affected by it. Sure we have made some positive strides, but far too many are still stigmatized, simply due to a lack of education.Egor Perviy, head of Dramatic Music Plays
