Play as an older lady living in a rural area and waiting for a letter from grandson.


Grand Story is a walking simulator, in which you are playing as an older lady living in a rural area. Apart from doing your daily routine, you are also waiting for a letter from a grandson.

The game takes about ~15 minutes to complete. Use WASD for movement and “E” or mouse buttons for interactions.

This is a game prototype that was done during Serious Game Jam and highlights the problem of “loneliness of elder people living in a rural area”. At the end of the game, we have a call to action encouraging players to contact their relatives. If they do so, we ask them to share their stories with us. Some of those stories we post on the game’s website –
