Just announced, The Last Night is a violent cyberpunk game coming to Linux, Mac and #Windows PC. Yet the #games #immerses the player into the life of Charlie. Who is a second-class citizen living in a city brimming with augmentation. Since the citizens are living a gamified existence. While Charlie can experience himself due to a childhood accident. Which is both apathetic and disheartened by the seemingly pointless world around him. So Charlie gets the opportunity to take matters into his own hands. But at what risk?
The Last Night Features:
- Explore a breathtaking post-cyberpunk world
Roam freely across four varied and vibrant districts in a unique blend of 2D and 3D. Travel between areas with futuristic transportation. And wind your way through dense crowds, drones, and unique characters. As long as you have the right to be there.
- Immersive, revolutionary visuals
Experience a city of gorgeous pixel art, drawn and animated by hand combined with state-of-the-art compositing techniques and camera work. The result is an immersive aesthetic, modernizing the cinematic platformer genre. Which will debut on Linux, Mac and Windows PC’s.
- Contextual stealth & gunplay
Each encounter in The Last Night is handcrafted to ensure variety and narrative progression. Use your acquired knowledge of the city to hide from drones, skirt around police, and escape dangerous situations – or people.
- Real-time action dialogues
Draw your gun to intimidate or simply walk away while in the middle in the games dialogue. Since NPC’s will stroll and chat alongside you rather than just stand around. They’ll even remember what you’ve said, night after night. So in this violent cyberpunk, make sure to watch your mouth as much as your back.
- A rich, personal narrative
Experience an unfiltered, futuristic society through the personal lens of Charlie, an ordinary low-class citizen – from the daily routine to extraordinary events. Live the stories of the city and its inhabitants in a world that may have you questioning modern life.
- Dynamic, original soundtrack
Showing you a side of the city that the camera can’t, the soundtrack and audio design places you directly into the heart of the world. From the music playing in shops as you stroll by to hover-cars blasting above you and the stories overheard through open windows, everything has been crafted to enhance the visuals and fully immerse you in this living, breathing environment.
So The Last Night is Odd Tales very first game. While this is a labour of love that evolved from the free 2014 prototype which won the #cyberpunkjam. And since this is a singeplayer, expect the gameplay to be immersive.
Since violent cyberpunk The Last Night does has a catalogue listing on Steam. The games release is coming to Linux, Mac and Windows, which will not happen until 2018. Stay tuned.
