Wanderlust Travel Stories
Top Critic Average
Wanderlust: Travel Stories is a different experience from your run-of-the-mill video game, and should appeal to anyone who is an avid traveler or wants to explore some unknown parts of the world from home. The stories are engaging and presented nicely, having enough of an impact on me to start downloading travel apps and plan trips. It may have the same effect on you.
I wouldn’t recommend Wanderlust to anyone who dislikes reading. Wanderlust Travel Stories is a very text-heavy experience. But if you enjoy reading and learning from gaming experiences and also enjoy traveling, I definitely recommend this gaming experience. Wanderlust Travel Stories is an evolution of non-fiction, blending the sights and sounds of cities, mountains, shores, etc. with interactive storytelling.
Wanderlust is a novelty video game. While it does use some mechanics known from more typical games, you need to keep one thing in mind if you want to give it a chance (which you should): this is first and foremost a story about travelling, in which feelings play the central role.

Ultimately, Wanderlust succeeds in being an inspirational work about the power of travel.
WanderLust Travel Stories is centered around a group of five strangers who meet on Rapa Nui (Easter Island). They recognise in each other kindred travelling spirits and decide that they will meet every night during their stay to hear each other’s respective stories of the journey that changed them. Through four long stories and five shorter stories in this anthology of travel you’ll learn more about each character and make decisions that shape how each character responds both in the present and within their own individual story.
