Game release: “Night Call” (PC)

Monkey Moon, BlackMuffin Studio, and Raw Fury‘s narrative taxi simulation Night Call delivers an interesting mix of crime and drama.

Anyone who has been following the Gamescom 2018 cover stories will remember this game from my third day press appointments. It took quite a while to show up in its final form, but it seems to be worth it, as nothing has been compromised in terms of vision and atmosphere. Still taking place in Paris and the player taking control of a taxi driver who tries to make a living and investigate a serial killer case involving someone killing taxi drivers, its dark material won’t be for everyone.

With more than 70 characters who share their life stories with the taxi driver during the short time it takes to take them to their destinations, there are enough reasons to replay the game, especially since their stories can be sad and funny. Of course one still has to gather clues from three case to find out who the killer is (or are there killers?). As the suspects can change from guilty to innocent, there’s even more replay value.

Providing an interesting mix of film noir atmosphere with surreal elements and presenting it all in a detective and visual novel style should set this game apart from other adventure titles. The game is out now on PC, and despite not launching with a discount, the developers should still be supported so that they might make even more unique titles like this one. Maybe there’s even a Switch version coming which should be perfect for playing in a taxi in short bursts… or not?
