Where the Water Tastes like Wine is a 20-30 hour walk through Americal folklore. You play as a skeleton cursed to travel the land and collect stories in order to find the place where the water tastes like wine. Stories are divided into sixteen tarot categories and five moods: thrilling, scary, hopeful, tragic, and funny. Different people will ask for stories with different moods, so it’s a good idea to have an even distribution. Once you get more than three stories for each tarot card, you can rearrange them in your inventory by pressing I and then selecting Stories.
Each of the sixteen characters has two achievements associated with them: one when you first meet them, and one when you complete Chapter 3 of their story.
