Garbage Day - Groundhog Day meets Postal via Steam Greenlight!

Imagine if your life day after day is a constant loop of the previous one. Would you live as a normal human being doing normal things or would you do everything you have ever wanted knowing that what ever you did would have no consequences for the day after? I for one would, and when it comes to the latest Steam Greenlight campaign for 'Garbage Day', you can do just that!

Garbage Day is an open world sandbox game, in which you are stuck in a time loop (meaning you live the same day over and over). In this game you have to explore and interact to find out how to get out of the time loop. You are able to do anything you want! You can just live your life making cereal, jump out of the tallest building or kill everyone in your way. Think of it as Postal meets GroundHog Day with a hint of Shadow Warrior. Or if you consider the driving aspect, Grand Theft Auto!

As for the story, the game takes place in a regular suburban town, powered by a nuclear plant, but after an accident in the power plant you get stuck in a temporal loop. Your main goal is to find a way to break the time loop by exploring the world and to find out the secret behind all of this. If you die, you just wake up in your bed and the day starts again, so the world is your oyster.  When you wake up you still know the information from the previous day and this influences the dialogue choices. Be a ruthless killer or become the friendliest neighbor to have ever walked the earth. Nothing matters when you're stuck in the same day for eternity... But maybe there's a way out. 

From what I've seen of the Greenlight campaign so far, this game is looking fantastic. It's a nice change of pace to be able to do what you want, with as I said no consequences for the day after, apart from knowing what you did. I'm really looking forward to this game being a Steam Greenlight success, and going by the comments on the page, it's looking very much like it will be a big thumbs up all round.

  2. :D You're welcome matey

  3. I guess it's inspired by Postal somewhat... There's no telling how much violence will figure in the actual game's storyline. So far, it does show a lot of violence but that doesn't mean that's what the game will be about. At least I hope so!
