  • Summary: Combining elements of 2D platformers, Metroidvania-type experiences, Deus Ex-esque character progression, JRPGs, and adventure games, The Sun at Night is a dream for those who love tight gameplay with their engrossing, exploration-heavy worlds.

    In building an intriguing alternate world, The Sun at Night charms, despite its flaws.

    A Soviet world supremacy has combined with a tale of a saved space female dog. The Sun at Night is a wonderful mixture of real history and fantasy. Nonetheless, a mere idea won't make a great game. Its frustrating gameplay that has been caused by design failures should warn you.

    The Sun at Night is a wonderful idea that features a lovable main character with a very interesting past. Unfortunately, the gameplay does not feel like it is quite there yet, as its adherence to old-school design elements impairs player accessibility.

    The art and customization are really the game’s strong suits, so hopefully Minicore studios can bring the rest of the package up to the standard set by those elements. Regardless of my issues with The Sun at Night, I’m looking forward to continuing Laika’s journey.

    There's little power to the bland gameplay or awkward, convoluted story. Laika is a tragic figure whose real-life fate is depressing, but the Laika of The Sun at Night doesn't make me feel anything at all.

Solid metroid with easy controls, stylish art, not too hard and with well designed story. Guess one can get more out of game if he love dogs. I, instead, like anti-soviet atmosphere, which is rare these days (well, perhaps not anymore after recent events). Expand

    In the game, you run around doing quests, sometimes requiring you to have combat but a lot of the time you will be running around doing oneIn the game, you run around doing quests, sometimes requiring you to have combat but a lot of the time you will be running around doing one quest, then end up doing five. The game hooks you in, but fails to keep you interested for a long time. I quickly lost interest, and have stopped playing. Expand
