Where The Water Tastes Like Wine, a narrative-focused game in which you work during the 1930s at the American Dust Bowl, listening and exchanging stories, hit the consoles later this month. The game, released on the PC in 2018, will hit Switch, PS4 and Xbox One on November 29.
The imminent release of the game was announced by publisher Serenity Forge on Twitter. It is now available for preorder on the Switch.

The game also received a new release trailer before the console release.
The game, which features Sting's participation, had difficulty launching, with creator Johnnemann Nordhagen publicly discussing the difficulties developer Dim Bulb Games faced after the game's release. "At the end of the day, it is surprising that a game that has received so much press attention, which has won awards, that has a cast of stars from writers and performers, that has a bizarre celebrity appearance (!) Has failed so much.", Wrote Nordhagen. Perhaps launching the game console can recoup some of the development costs.
We gave the game a 6/10 rating in our original analysis, stating that "if the basic premise of gathering folk stories in a 1930s version of America appeals strongly to you, then where water tastes like wine is worth a look, but it's probably not worth finishing ". Since release, the game has been updated with Chinese-American tales. At the moment, it is discounted 70% on Steam.
