A Musical Story is quite different from the one we’ve mentioned above, but not in a bad way! The game takes place in the 70’s, conveying the story of a musician known as Gabriel. The story is told to us with a great mix of 70’s rock with lo-fi beats on loop that always play in the background, which makes the gameplay a very unique experience.
