“Last Time I Saw You charmed us from the very first time we played the demo,” said Shintaro Kanaoya, founder and CEO of Chorus Worldwide. “This beautiful, haunting, and enjoyably playable adventure will stay in gamers’ hearts for a long time and we’re so excited to work with Juan and the Maboroshi team to bring the game to life.”
“This game was born from a heartbreak that I experienced some years ago,” says Juan Fandiño, creator of Maboroshi Artworks and Last Time I Saw You. “I decided to take all the conflicting emotions I had inside and try to make something useful with them, transforming them into a somewhat healing experience that other people could also enjoy and relate to.”
