Who doesn't like a family gathering? “Fête de famille” is an acid portrait of a contemporary French family, which seeks, at the heart of an apparently ordinary family reunion, to understand why and how the members of a kinship are linked. A text based game designed for mobile, halfway between visual novel and interactive animation.
Fête de famille (Family gathering) tells the timeless story of the Family, the one we love, cherish, slander and despise. For his grandfather's birthday, 90 years old and living memory of his family's history, the player finds himself at the center of a generational conflict with unpredictable consequences. Underneath their typical and charming French family appearance, each member hides dark secrets and unfathomable motives.
Grandpa's last birthday
The grandfather is growing old and the little party in his honor may well be the last. Behind the scenes, rumors spread that he had a will drawn up, the content of which is still unknown. Already not exactly thrilled at the idea of returning to his native village to spend the day with his family, the player is mandated to investigate this mysterious will and determine who will come out on top.
Fête de famille (Family gathering) gives the player the opportunity to interact with their environment through multiple choices. They can explore and influence the family reunion for better or worse. A seemingly insignificant choice may very well change the relationship between the family members for good
