Now Playing: Where The Water Tastes Like Wine - Music Trailer

The game also received a new launch trailer ahead of its console release.

The game, which contains a guest appearance from Sting, struggled at launch, with creator Johnnemann Nordhagen publicly discussing the difficulties developer Dim Bulb Games faced following the game's release. "At the end of the day it's astounding that a game that got this much attention from the press, that won awards, that had an all-star cast of writers and performers, that had a bizarre celebrity guest appearance(!) failed this hard," Nordhagen wrote. Perhaps the game's console release can recoup some of the costs of development.

We gave the game a 6/10 in our original review, stating that "if the basic premise of gathering folk stories across a version of 1930s America strongly appeals to you, then Where the Water Tastes Like Wine is worth a look, but it's probably not worth finishing". Since launch, the game has been updated with Chinese-American tales. It's currently discounted by 70% on Steam.
