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 a game website -
