  • Summary: A mysterious serial killer stalks the streets of modern-day Paris. The body count rises, and the police are no closer to catching the culprit.

You are a taxi driver and survivor to the killer's most recent attacks, having barely escaped with your life. You have seven nights to help find the killer, or the police will pin it on you. These next few shifts will be far from ordinary or safe...

    Night Call is a non-linear, narrative-driven noire investigation game. You are no detective, but you do have a gift. Around you, people feel more at ease. They talk. They share their thoughts, their emotions, their stories... their secrets. To passengers, you are more than just a driver; you are also a friend, a confidant, a shrink. A voyeur catching a glimpse under the masked but very real lives throughout the City of Light. And you'll need to play these roles well if you want to catch the killer.

    Use the limited time you have available each night to gather clues while earning money to pay your bills. Drive passengers to their destinations, hear their stories and choose your responses carefully -- some are just regular people with a tale to tell, while others might reveal a clue that's key to your investigation. Follow the right leads to uncover new info about the suspects, and don't forget to make enough money to buy gas and pay your bills.

    Can you solve the mystery before it's too late? Better hurry -- both the clock and the meter are running...

    Night Call works best when it allows us to relax and enjoy discovering the little stories hidden in Paris, some darker than others, and some even surreal and funny. The story and characters keep us engaged it is a highly recommended game for lovers of narrative experiences.

    Night Call may draw you with its murder mysteries, but you’ll keep playing to learn about its numerous, interesting characters. It’s incredibly well written, if a bit pretentious in the best way. Unfortunately, it’s numerous glitches may frustrate players too much to keep playing.

    In its current form, Night Call feels like a great short story collection trapped in a video game. All the petty distractions and police work get in the way of the real joys of chatting about how much life sucks under a full moon.
