Area Man Lives Release Date Revealed
It’s been a long road to release for the project. Area Man Lives originally started life as an episodic series for Google’s Daydream platform. Named Untetheared, the series released two of its three episodes before Daydream’s demise left the final installment in limbo. A few years back, it was announced that the publishing arm of Myst developer Cyan would be helping to bring the game to other headsets under a new game with some changes. CityLights also assited with the release.
The game will be on show as part of the 2022 Cannes Film Festival. Are you going to be trying out Area Man Lives next week? Let us know in the comments below!
