Wonderful Narrative Adventure Wide Ocean Big Jacket Has Added New Free Chapters

Wide Ocean Big Jacket has released a new content update, adding a few extra chapters to the extremely likable indie narrative game. The Meryl and Alan chapters, which were previously released as a demo during LudoNarraCon 2020, are now available in the full game.

These chapters focus on two characters who appear as side-figures during the main game, and you’ll now be able to play as them and experience their story. As the original game was all of 90 minutes long, this extra content is most welcome.

The full game follows Cloanne and Brad, who have taken their young niece Mord and her boyfriend Brad on a camping trip. It’s not a game that’s particularly rich with incident–the characters hang out, tell spooky stories, enjoy nature, and have tough conversations. It’s beautiful.

It’s worth reading David Wildgoose’s impressions of the game, where he called it “the getaway we could all use right now.”

If you picked up that huge Itch bundle earlier this year, you have Wide Ocean Big Jacket, and now it’s slightly bigger than it was before. The game, and the update, are also available on Steam and Switch Eshop.
