Assemble Entertainment has announced the release date of Fall of Porcupine. The game is a 2D adventure designed with the explicit agenda of offering insight into the healthcare profession.

It’s been quite the winter for the town of Porcupine. The many feet of snow left its residents confined to their fireplaces and coziest blankets. But, the time for hibernation is over. For Porcupine’s residents, there is a big day on the horizon.

Players can enjoy Fall of Porcupine as the town’s newest resident, Finley. The fledgling medical practitioner is on an emotional journey that will lead to new relationships. Watch your words though, as while meeting these new and eclectic characters may be exciting, you never know just what might get you on someone’s bad side.

Finley’s adventures will lead to sensitive territory dealing with themes like death, illness, mental health, and grief. Fall of Porcupine aims to sensitively tackle each of these with approachable storylines, relatable characters, and resonating dialogue.
