Sunset Shift is a new game by Spanish developer Selkie Harbour, placing players in the shoes of an exclusive private island’s bin collector.
You take the wheel of a giant truck and your goal is to collect the island’s residents’ waste – but there’s a twist: this billionaire’s paradise doesn’t have a landfill site or any kind of recycling plant, so players are obliged to go off-road to dump their rubbish.
There’s a storyline to follow too, told via radio messages with the owner of the island’s son, and this progresses steadily in the background alongside the main garbage-collecting mechanic.
The difficulty is ramped up thanks to the limited capacity of your truck, as more and more waste-creating residents move to the island. Finding space for bigger piles of rubbish becomes more challenging and predictably results in an ecological disaster.
