In every door lies another memory, and every memory unlocks another door.

There's a flash of white, and you suddenly find yourself in an unfamiliar place.  A locked door keeps you enclosed in this small, empty room — well, empty all except for the table that sits in the dead center of the floor.  Atop that table sits a rotary phone, completely unplugged.  The walls and carpet are uncomfortably plain, the camera in the corner not helping with that discomfort.  After a few moments, the unbearable silence is finally broken by the ringing of the rotary phone.  There's nothing left for you to do but answer the call.

Summerland is a first-person narrative game developed by high school student Conner Rush.  You take the role of an ill detective named Matthew as you relive the events of his recent past, all the while being questioned on your moral stances.  With themes heavily revolving around ethical philosophy and the afterlife, Summerland is sure to be a unique gameplay experience.

Summerland includes:

  • An engrossing and intriguing 1.5 - 2 hour single-player story written by Conner Rush (Welcome to the Dreamscape).
  • Beautiful visuals and design.
  • A stellar voice cast featuring Ryan Beard, Rhys David, and Natalie Van Sistine.
  • A haunting soundtrack composed and performed by Auric Echoes.

Featuring:

  • 100% controller support.
  • An autosave system.
  • An array of graphical, control, and post-processing settings.

Hi!  This is Conner.  I just wanted to say that this game was very much made as a way to deal with some really intense existential fears of death.  This was just sort of my way of coping with those big ideas.  Even if those fears or how personal this game is to me isn't very apparent in your playthrough, just know that it's a project that really meant a lot to me and made me feel a bit of comfort.  I hope that if you struggle with these same fears, you'll find comfort in it as well.

All music in Summerland is original.  You are more than welcome to record / stream your playthroughs.

Note: This game uses some 3D assets legally from The Unity Asset Store and other 3rd party services.  These are not claimed to be original work.

Hello,

Your game looks really interesting and I was wondering how long this game is? Is it similar to a walking simulator game?

It's around 1:10-1:40, depends on how fast you solve puzzles. 

Okay, I can work with that. I'm kinda stupid so it will probably take me longer to do it xD

very impressive game play honestly! I loved playing the whole thing and questioning my murality

I loved the game! It's insane for a game that's THIS GOOD to be FREE! You guys are doing an amazing job. Keep rocking! Can't wait to see more. 

Absolutely amazing! Vod available @ twitch.tv/AdventurersQuarters

To say I'm impressed with this Indie game would be an understatement. This could be at least a 20$ experience, but this developer decided to release it free of charge. The narration was excellent, the story was gripping. The further I went through the trials, the more I was invested in the protagonist. Don't think twice about downloading this game and playing through it. I know this story will stick with me for a long while. Great job and I hope you get the chance to make new games like this one soon, and while you're at it earn some awards.

Dense, deep game with an incredible narrative. The graphics are beautiful but you need to optimize better. Voices are very good. Excellent job.

great jobs

Love the game and the story, and I am more impressed by how beautiful it looks!
Very well written and executed!

Here is my play through of it:

Amaizing game, a little slow at times and a few performance issues. The graphics and audio were amazing, but best of all the story. The story is very immersive and the questioning of morality is a very fine touch to the game.  Five stars from me!
