If you’re a fan of horror, especially a horror video game fan, then this premise may be familiar to you. There is an accident the protagonist is involved in. While trying to check on the victim, the protagonist is led into a mysterious location. Is everything the protagonist is seeing real? Where have these supernatural elements come from? OSome Studio, an indie developer out of France, know the elements that make for good horror.
When I saw the trailer, I first thought of Silent Hill, the classic horror game series. In Silent Hill, the protagonist is often drawn into the unknown, rather than purposefully hunting for it. Then, with the protagonist, who looks like a detective, I thought of Frank Miller’s Sin City. White Night is all about noir, the mood of an era long past. White Night‘s originality comes in the combination of a monochrome color scheme and the mechanics of light and shadow. Besides the fear of what lies in the dark, you also have puzzle to solve- puzzles which incorporate the lights and the darkness. I would like to see some gameplay or play a demo before I buy the game, but I’m excited and impressed thusfar.
White Night is available now on PC, Mac, and Linux via the Steam store. It is also available on PS4 and Xbox One, as a digital download.
