Until Then game

Publisher Maximum Entertainment and developer Polychroma Games have announced a release date for Until Then, their Philippines narrative adventure game.

Until Then is now set to launch on June 25th across Windows PC (via Steam) and PlayStation 5.

Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a trailer:

In a world still recovering from catastrophe, Mark Borja and his friends navigate the joys and woes of another year of high school. Wake up in a typical teenage bedroom, practice piano, race to meet homework deadlines, and build (and burn) relationships, as you reminisce about the daily insecurities of high school life.

That is, until a fateful meeting sets off a chain reaction, upending Mark’s life. People disappear and memories prove unreliable. Uncover a hidden truth with Mark and his friends in this narrative adventure and race to unravel the mystery before it’s too late.
