An old man's journal
In this week's update on the game, we're showing you a sample of the journal in Life Pictures. The journal is where our main character writes the things that he remembers. When starting the journey, his vague memories translate only to sketches in his journal, but as you take pictures and uncover more about his life, he will remember things more accurately. Helping him fill out all the pages in his journal is the ultimate goal of Life Pictures. We hope you enjoy this small sample below, representing the first things the old man remembers as you begin playing! Thank you for reading!
I was raised by my grandparents. They lived in a place that would now seem out of this world. A place where everything was green, where grass and trees were the norm, not some oasis of nature in a city suffocated by steel and glass. I loved the forest, I loved exploring, running around, being as free as I would ever be in life. I love to remember those days. I wish that when I die, if there is anything beyond, I'd go to a place where I’m surrounded only by nature, trees as far as the eyes can see. I wouldn’t miss the city, I never felt like I belonged. In my heart, I was always the kid running around in the forest.
When I was old enough to go to school, I had to leave my grandparents and move to the city with my father. It took me a long time to get used to the people, the noise, the air. I longed for the next visit to my grandparents, but when they passed away, I had no place to escape anymore. The only good thing my father did for me was to buy that cabin in the woods. I used to go there as often as I could, it was the only place where I could really breathe. For a long time, it was my real home.
