Game release: “White Night” (PC, Xbox One, PS4)

Survival horror and adventure games seldom go well together, but with OSome Studio’s narrative-driven White Night, this preconception could change.

What’s most striking about the title is its visual presentation. All in black and white (except for some flames), this reflects the setting, namely the 30ies. But it’s not about talking to any characters and elaborate storytelling exposition, as much is explored and discovered by the player himself, not unlike Gone Home. This is as creepy as it gets with finding out more about an old, dilapidated mansion’s sinister past, after the main protagonists witnesses a car crash. Donning or already wearing a fedora head, the investigation soon reveals some ghostly apparitions, and it’s now either finding light sources or forever being consumed by darkness and what’s lurking there.

This is definitely a game that already looks breathtaking because of its clever use of shadows and lighting effects, while the sound design is also quite atmospheric and disturbing. Now if storytelling and puzzle solving are just as great, then this should be a very nice addition to the subtle survival horror titles of the past with a cinematic approach.

The game is available now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Considering the high quality graphics and smooth animation, the system requirements for the Steam version are pretty high, so depending on your setup and/or preference, maybe the console ports work best.
