    Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is a fascinating adventure with unexpected plot twists, bright humor and really deep characters that are incredibly pleasant to watch throughout the story. With minimal interactivity and a short duration, we are facing one of the most exciting adventure projects of the not-too-fruitful spring of 2020.

    Charming, cheesy, and mysterious, Dark Nights with Poe and Munro delivers a solid FMV adventure throughout its six episodes. Though the game plays out more like a choose-your-own-adventure than a full on video game, it’s a good time nonetheless. I found the dynamic duo to be fun to watch, especially during their playful banter due to the strong chemistry between the two actors. However, the quick time event based gameplay lacked polish and felt tacked on. Regardless, Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is certainly worth playing for those who enjoy goofy supernatural FMV games.

    Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is more of what D’Avekki does well – weird, cheeky, eldritch FMV games that have snappy dialogue and a penchant for the lovecraftian darker side of entertainment. If you enjoyed Shapeshifting Detective or The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, you’ll enjoy what this game does too – more so than those who haven’t.

    It doesn’t quite reach the lofty heights of The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker or The Shapeshifting Detective, but its episodic format, coupled with excellent performances and quality writing, means that Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is well worth tuning in for.

    Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is perfect for fans of D'Avekki Studios. However, the short episodes can undermine the great story ideas and actor chemistry on display.

    This anthology series of six short but replayable episodes has just the right mix of charm, melodrama, and creepiness to make it worth a look.

    The audience for Dark Nights is likely as small as the town of August where these stories take place, but I found a lot to enjoy.

    It's a game from the creators of The Shapeshifting Detective and The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker and that is why I want to give it aIt's a game from the creators of The Shapeshifting Detective and The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker and that is why I want to give it a shot. Because I actually liked the Poe and Munro but in this game, I must admit that I got really bored. I am sorry Poe and Munro... 3hrs on record. Expand
