Sundown: A Dunkirk Story was featured in the article Playing With History - The forbidden gay love of Sundown: A Dunkirk Story. Thank you Adrian for a fantastic chat. As always it was a pleasure to talk about the themes of the game.

“We wanted to tell a military story that people don’t normally get to hear. Even Nolan’s Dunkirk focused on the men in the moment, and not the complex lives and loose ties they left behind them. Just like Gilbert and Gordon, we didn’t want to define our characters by the war that disrupted their lives and their love. We wanted to explore the men that found themselves in that awful situation, their families, their fears, and their boredom. Most of all we wanted to respectfully hold a candle to Gilbert and Gordon, and all of the other men in their position, who are only now having their stories discovered and accepted.”
