is now available for Windows and macOS, offering a "Noire Novella
Investigative Game." You can pick this up through
the Humble Store
, and it is included with the
Xbox Game Pass for PC
. Here's the
here are the details:
Modern day Paris. Itís chilly outside, the cold
biting the tips of your fingers as you take another drag of a cigarette. With a
flick of your fingers, ash falls to the ground alongside drops of rain. It
hasnít let up for days now. You switch on the lamp light of your cab and get
ready to begin your shift, who will end up in the back tonight?
We look at Night Call as a strong narrative experience with light resource
management and investigation mechanics. Its power is certainly in the stories
being told by the 70+ passengers youíll encounter in the back of your cab. Some
passengers detail whimsical lighthearted moments, others peculiar and thought
provoking, and a few will come into the backseat with very dark accounts
exploring themes not often seen in games. Night Call is not one story but rather
a collective narrative from all these characters who have something to share and
contributing to the greater investigation that you are now charged with being a
part of. Will you find the killer running rampant in Paris?
Night Call is intended for mature audiences, hereís the content warning we have
in place on its store page verbatim:
Text references to violence, sexual acts, and use of alcohol. Potentially
triggering dialogue with themes including tragedy, politics, religion and
violence. Use of profanity and potentially offensive language.
You may have been coerced into aiding in this investigation, but the backseat of
a cab is a confessional and its driver a confidant told the most intimate
secrets before letting their passenger go and never seeing them again. Use this
skill to bring a little bit of peace to the streets of Paris or it may be you
who takes the fall. Start your shift, itís going to be a long night.
