GAME DESCRIPTION

Sunset is a first person exploration game that takes place in a single luxurious penthouse apartment in the capital of a fictitious Latin American country in 1972. As housekeeper Angela Burnes you get to know the owner of the apartment, Gabriel Ortega, by going through his things while he is away. A relationship develops between two people who never meet while war breaks out in the city. A violent uprising has begun against the military regime that holds the country in a stranglehold. Will you get involved with the rebellion? Will Ortega? And if so, how?

Sunset is a first person exploration game in the vein of Gone Home and Dear Esther. As in those, gameplay centers on the discovery of story clues. Unlike those, the story of Sunset takes place while you play the game (instead of uncovering a story that has already happened). 

The other inspiration for Sunset is violent war-inspired action games. We always wondered what life would be like for the NPCs in such games. How does it feel to be one of the many victims of war, instead of the hero. How does it feel when war is the backdrop for your day-to-day life? 

Sunset is divided into 44 play sessions that each take a fictional hour: until the sun sets. Each time you get a list of housekeeping tasks that you are requested to do. There will be more tasks available in the apartment. And there will be other activities, such as going through the owner's possessions in search of information, and interacting with his 1970s-era technological gadgets. 

Your avatar, Angela Burnes, is not an empty vessel. She has a personality of her own and you discover her thoughts while playing. 

Angela Burnes is an African American citizen. At the end of the sixties, when she is in her mid twenties, she is inspired by the Black Power movement and communism. In an effort to learn more about egality, she travels to the then socialist republic of Anchuria. During her visit, a US-backed military coup happens and she is disallowed from leaving the country. Her university degree is not recognized by the new regime and she is forced to work as a housekeeper to sustain herself. 

When Angela's younger brother, David, a soldier in the American military, is stationed in Anchuria, he defects and joins an underground resistance movement. 

Gabriel Ortega is a lover of the arts. Through his work as a curator he met Maria Luisa of the wealthy Veleta family. They fell in love and married. Thanks to the money from this marriage, Gabriel became a much celebrated benefactor of the arts. When the coup happened, theaters and museums were closed. The new government offered affluent citizens positions of power. Gabriel's wife, and most of her family and their friends, were happy to accept but Gabriel refused. Rising tensions between the couple ultimately lead to a separation. 

The story of Sunset begins when Gabriel Ortega moves into a new penthouse apartment in the capital San Bavón. It is in this apartment that Angela Burnes finds employment.
