Another cool new IP was introduced last night at The Game Awards. Usual June is a spectral looking action game with a sweet aesthetic. At first I expected something a little more chill and slow paced, but the gameplay shows some furious fighting. It’s sure to charm hearts when it arrives in 2025, wishlist it here.
Grand Rapids, Michigan – December 7th, 2023: FINJI, the award winning development studio behind Overland and Canabalt, and publisher of TUNIC, Night in the Woods, and Chicory: A Colorful Tale, are proud to reveal their studio’s next internal development: Usual June.
Usual June is a new third-person action adventure game announced today at The Game Awards with a World Premiere trailer.
Usual June is being made by the FINJI Development Team, led by Creative Director Adam Saltsman (Overland, Canabalt) and produced in collaboration with the narrative team at Sweet Baby Inc (Alan Wake 2, God of War: Ragnarok, Spider-Man 2) and BAFTA winning audio director Adam Hay (Dreams, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture).
Play as June, a college student who can talk to ghosts, as you hang out with your new best friends, defend yourself against strange creatures, and try to uncover a Midwest city’s deepest secrets before it’s too late.
Players will delight in frantic, flexible combat, a witty cast (living and dead), and an original conspiracy story that is equal parts terrifying, funny, and sweet, with graphic novel-inspired storytelling in a full 3D game world.
Usual June is currently in development for PC for 2025, with a release date to be announced in the future. Players can wishlist the game now on Steam.
