A Heartwarming Game with a Rich Story – A Perfect Dayis Now Available on Xbox

What if you could travel back in time to the exact day when everything went so wrong that youve been regretting till now? Would you make different choices, say different things, or, perhaps say nothing at all? In A Perfect Day, a 6th-grade Chinese student has got this opportunity to relive his last day of the 20th century again and again, but unlike in the movie “Groundhog Day”, he enters a loop without the memories from the past ones.

A Perfect Day is an interactive fiction game. Playing as the Chinese elementary schoolboy, your journey starts from the sudden cancellation of a school day. At first, you just want to be bold enough to give a card to your favorite classmate. However, through the endless cycle on the last day of 1999, you learn about your friends’ and family’s secrets, and in the end help everyone achieve their ”perfect day”. You can also play Gamicom mini-games, assemble your own 4WD, or just spend the entire day relaxing in the park—It’s all up to you to have a perfect day for everyone…or not.

Innovative Time-Loop Based Gameplay

In A Perfect Day, you get to repeat the last day of the 20th century without the memories from the past loops. You’ll be able to make the most out of this single day that’s given to you, or quite the contrary. In the end, this is supposed to be your “perfect day”. At last, we all have our own definition of “perfect”, don’t we?
