Here is an overview of the game, via Chorus Worldwide:
Explore the Japanese countryside as Ayumi, a 12-year-old boy on the verge of becoming a teenager.

Unravel the complicated truth on Ayumi’s emotional journey of self-discovery as he marches toward adulthood. Grow and change through the trials and tribulations of a first love.
Embrace a series of existential questions while roaming fantastical hand-drawn environments and socializing with local townsfolk. Step forward into a coming-of-age tale full of forests crawling with helpful creatures, dangerous threats and an unrelenting typhoon. Succumb to a dreamlike mood courtesy of an ethereal ambient lo-fi soundtrack.
“Last Time I Saw You charmed us from the very first time we played the demo,” said Chorus Worldwide founder and CEO Shintaro Kanaoya in a press release. “This beautiful, haunting, and enjoyably playable adventure will stay in gamers’ hearts for a long time and we’re so excited to work with Juan and the Maboroshi team to bring the game to life.”
Maboroshi Artworks founder and Last Time I Saw You creator Juan Fandino added, “This game was born from a heartbreak that I experienced some years ago. I decided to take all the conflicting emotions I had inside and try to make something useful with them, transforming them into a somewhat healing experience that other people could also enjoy and relate to.”
