Alex finds himself in a budding romance with his best friend Jake, all while a mysterious events shake up his town, in the lovely romantic adventure game Newfound Courage.
Alex finds some truly strange events have struck the town of Silverpine. They have this place called The Vault there. It’s an institute that holds the knowledge of a long-dead civilization, and that totally won’t cause anything odd to happen in town. Nothing of the sort. But if it did, you might need to work out its mysteries while also helping the townsfolk with the troubles that they’re having. Which definitely aren’t related to long-dead civilizations. No sir.
More pressing than mysterious events are Alex’s budding feelings for his friend, Jake. You’ll be exploring his growing romantic connection with Jake, and sharing in their touching love story as you watch their bond grow over the course of the game. Which hopefully won’t be derailed by strange events for very long. Young love is a bit more pressing than dead civilizations, if you ask me.
The game is a short one that will bring you through some light puzzles and simulation elements as you work through the town’s troubles. It’s more about getting to know the quirky, charming folks who live within the town and creating connections with them, as well as spending time finding out about Alex’s feelings to Jake. It’s quite a heartwarming story to watch unfold, making for a journey you’ll definitely want to share with this cute couple.
