In Bientôt l’été, you will assume the role of either a male or female. Due to unfortunate circumstances you and your lover are light years apart. The only way to interact with one another is using a virtual reality simulator. The simulator allows you to explore a small expanse of empty beach – with a cafe. As you stroll along the beach, phrases of adulation, love, loss and despair will appear on screen. These are stored for use in conversation with your partner.
