If you’ve been highly anticipating the release of Wanderlust: Travel Stories, you might want to hold your horses first as you need to wait just a bit longer. The new digital travel experience is now scheduled for release on September 26, on PC and Mac via Steam, and on iOS.

Wanderlust: Travel Stories Co-Founder Jacek Brzeziński explained in a statement that the reason for the delay was that the game’s interactive narrative needed additional rigorous testing. He added that “after many discussions with our publisher, in order to deliver the quality expected by both players and us, we feel that we need a little bit more time to polish the game and make it a perfect digital travel experience. We apologize for the small delay.” The extra time is also necessary to ensure that the game runs as intended on both PC and Mac, as well as on iOS.

Wanderlust: Travel Stories is a story-driven exploration game resulting from the collaboration between two ex-Witcher developers, Brzeziński and Artur Ganszyniec. By combining their love for travel and expertise in narrative design, Wanderlust: Travel Stories allows players to journey with a diverse group of travelers on different life-changing adventures.

Co-Founder Ganszyniec related that when they first presented the game, they noticed that it was well received by people who didn’t see themselves as gamers. He said that this could "be a sign that interactive media can find their way into the mainstream culture, becoming in time just another way of telling stories about common human experiences.”

The game is set in a small bistro in Hanga Roa, where five explorers exchange stories. As each begins their tale, players step into their shoes and join them on their journey. Decide on what to pack in their bags, manage their travel expenses, and make sure to monitor their mental and physical health as you explore real-world locations.

The key features of Wanderlust: Travel Stories are:

  • Diverse, grounded and relatable storytelling—authentic stories inspired by real people
  • Experience the emotive genre of ‘slow gaming’
  • Original, bespoke photography of featured locations captured by the creators themselves
  • 12+ hours of playtime on release
  • 300,000+ word-long adventure
