Night Call Revealed

By Dave Bricker, 12 days ago
Night Call is a new kind of narrative noire game where the investigation takes place in a real city.

You are a taxi driver. Paris is your city and you know every corner of it.
Your shift starts when the night is dark and ends when the city wakes up. You work hard to pay back your car, your taxi license, and your bills.
At night, passengers hop in your taxi. Sometimes you talk to them, sometimes they talk to you. You are not only a driver; for some people you are a priest, a confident, a friend. You like this routine.
Everything changes when the police reveals that the recent murders shattering your city are connected. As their investigation is stalling, they ask everyone to keep their eyes peeled.
You want to do more. Because the victims were all clients of your taxi company. Because you are the last person to see the most recent victim alive...
You begin to investigate with your only advantage: on your backseat, people talk, open up, share secrets. So listen to your passengers, collect clues, and stop the killer.

  • GORGEOUS GAME NOIRE STYLE: Every character and location are lovingly hand-drawn in stunning black & white, evoking the pure tension of the noire style of art.
  • A VIVID AND ORIGINAL CAST: Meet dozens of original, surprising, realistic characters and share their lives for a few brief moments. Listen and help they might have something useful for you.
  • INVESTIGATION VS. SURVIVAL: Will you forsake information for more money, or sacrifice your income to get the info you need? Make your choices quickly time is running out!
  • MULTIPLE ENDINGS, MULTIPLE KILLERS: Can you uncover the identity of the killer each time? Be careful: a guilty suspect in one playthrough may be completely innocent in the next.
  • NON LINEAR NARRATIVE GAME: Encounters are random. Every run is different.

Night Call has been confirmed for consoles, but we do not yet know which ones, nor do not have a definitive release date, other than sometime in early 2019. When we learn more information, we will let you know.
