It’s been quite the winter for the town of Porcupine. The many, many feet of snow left its residents confined to their fireplaces and coziest blankets as they enjoyed the holiday season with friends and family. But the time for hibernation is over for Porcupine’s residents, as there is a big day on the horizon! Join the newest resident of Porcupine, Finley, as he seeks to find his way through an ever-changing and emotional new chapter of his life.
Stepping into the town of Porcupine for the first time, players will take to the worn and well-loved scrubs of Dr. Finley, the newest fledgling medical practitioner to step through the doors of the Porcupine hospital. At first glance, the town and its people hold up to its quiet, small-town vibe. But as you experience the heart-tugging story of Fall of Porcupine unfolds, you’ll see that not everything is as it seems. Not everyone is honest with themselves and others, the healthcare industry is not as illustrious as it seemed in medical school, and the work/life balance Finley strives toward might be harder to achieve than he could have ever imagined.
Key Features of Fall of Porcupine:
- Where the Wild Things get their Healthcare: Build relationships with the eclectic and intriguing citizens of Porcupine through deep and engaging conversations. Watch your words, as who knows just what might get you on someone’s bad side.
