About

A 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 the last person to see the most recent victim alive. These next few shifts will be far from ordinary or safe…

Night Call is an investigative noire game with two goals: solve a murder mystery and make enough money to pay your bills. Your shift starts at night and ends at daybreak, as you try to earn enough to pay for your cab, your apartment, and just make a living. But when the police investigation gets nowhere, the officer in charge forces you to help by doing what you do best: getting passengers to talk in the little time that you have their attention.

The two roles you must play (investigator and cabbie) each have a set of priorities that may at times conflict with each other. You need to get enough information from the right passengers - but you only have them for so much time. Pick up the right passengers and ask the right questions to obtain new clues. Follow the right leads and uncover new info about the suspects… And never forget that your life is in the balance.

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

KEY FEATURES:
🚖 GORGEOUS GAME NOIRE STYLE: Every character and location are lovingly hand-drawn in stunning black & white, evoking the pure tension of the noire style of art.
🚖 A VIVID AND ORIGINAL CAST: Meet dozens of original, surprising, realistic characters and share their lives for a few brief moments. Listen and help - they might have something useful for you.
🚖 INVESTIGATION VS. SURVIVAL: Will you forsake information for more money, or sacrifice your income to get the info you need? Make your choices quickly - time is running out!
🚖 MULTIPLE ENDINGS, MULTIPLE KILLERS: Can you uncover the identity of the killer each time? Be careful: a guilty suspect in one playthrough may be completely innocent in the next.

Night Call reviews and comments

On the surface its a really neat concept. Drive around Paris, pick up a plethora of diverse and interesting passengers, get to know them and simultaneously solve a serial murder case. There are 3 cases to choose from and an also a 'free roaming' mode where you can taxi around without the constraints of the story mode.

In practice this makes for very repetitive gameplay and dialogue. The passenger interactions themselves are great (bar a few which are far too long and tedious), that element of the game stands up. However, the bridges between those moments doesn't do so well.

You're never actually provided much information on the cases you're meant to be solving bar the basic clues for each suspect which you uncover. Which seems like an oversight for a game centred around solving murders. The text when falling asleep and waking up each day is exactly the same every night and every case. The dialogue with the detective who gives you the cases is exactly the same. The protagonists link to the cases (the fact he was attacked too) never fits in with the MO or motive of any of the culprits and it's super buggy.

I really wanted to like the game. The passenger interactions really shine and Houssine (the player character) is a real sweetheart. But the bugs and repetition are too much to ignore. The worst part is that these issues feel very fixable with not too much time/effort spent.

With a bit more dev time it could be great, for now though... If you can get it for free/on game pass, give it a look in but I wouldn't pay for it
