    All talk, conjecture, and analysis aside Not Tonight is great. As I stated before, if you liked Papers Please you’ll love this game. You don’t even need to be into the graphics or politics to get a kick out of this game. Not Tonight delivers pure-bred fun and challenge in a way that rarely, if ever, feels cheap. The game is well worth your time picking up if you can manage to push through the massive pool of levels.

    Not Tonight is a surprisingly deep and engaging game that will suck you in. If you let it. Of course, the politics aren't to everybody's liking, but the game more than makes up for it with great wit, as it tackles - to an extent - deep subjects. The gameplay can be artificially difficult at times, but is still as engaging as the obvious inspiration: Papers, Please. Should you play Not Tonight? Yes, yes you should.

    Not Tonight is a good, solid game. The mechanics are fun, the characters are memorable, and the setting is well executed. However, for its satirical approach, it should have gone a few steps further, and taken the risk in order to become the truly biting, funny, and meaningful social commentary that it wants to be.

    A flawed but enjoyable rework of Papers, Please. [Issue#205, p.84]

    The developers took on a difficult subject and tripped. They managed to conjure a proper dystopian setting, but the story is too shallow to make a proper impression. [11/2018, p.79]

    Not Tonight is Papers, Please-like set in a post-Brexit GB; it sounds good, but it misses some points.

    Not Tonight proves that the Papers Please formula can work in a less soviet setting, but the experience is slightly diminished by the transplant. Yet it’s eccentricities remain endearing, with characters, landscapes and a haunting sound of muffled music that will be rambling around my skull for a little while yet.

    This is truly a spectacular game. Everything in "Not Tonight" is done well, from the fantastic music to the graphics, storyline, and gameplay.This is truly a spectacular game. Everything in "Not Tonight" is done well, from the fantastic music to the graphics, storyline, and gameplay. With easily over 100 levels to play, there's no chance of you getting bored. As a matter of fact, I got so into the game that I played for nearly 5 hours straight! For those reviews that claim "Not Tonight" is just a knockoff of "Papers, Please" I absolutely disagree. "Not Tonight" has many more locations, memorable characters, and gameplay features than "Papers, Please" and I would even argue that it's better! "Not Tonight" is a wonderful game that I would absolutely recommend to anyone who's in the market for something new. Expand

    No PT-BR translation and I know they can launch it. It was not made by who made Papers Please but it is very similar
