A programmer is turning the "worst year of his life" into an interactive video game that aims to help people think about their last few months together.

Russell Quinn, 41, from Cheltenham, now living in Los Angeles, came up with the idea after his mother and grandmother died within a few weeks of each other.

The player takes on different roles within the family and is asked to have conversations or perform tasks.

The video game Linda & Joan will be released in 2022.
