Patch 1.0.1 Out Now - Resolution Fixes & Launcher


Drivers,
Yesterday we released Night Call, a game that has been in development for several years. We don't see launch as the end of that development though, but rather the beginning of something new.

Over the coming weeks and months we'll be working to improve and expand Night Call. We'll be listening closely to your feedback, which will be instrumental in helping to shape the future of the game.

The team is currently focused on fixing some of the bugs that unfortunately made it in to the game, and making design and balance tweaks based on your feedback. We're also working on a German translation for the game which will be out soon.

There are also some secret things being worked on, which we'll share more about at a later date.

For now though, here's 1.0.1!


Changelog
Content
- Added Game Launcher on Startup
- Added option to boot without Launcher

Fixes
- Fixed an issue where the game would crash if resolution was changed before loading a game
- Fixed an issue where the game could lock up when changing resolution
- Fixed an issue where clues would appear unintentionally

Cheers

Night Call is available now!

Discover the true City of Lights through the eyes of over 70 passengers


Modern day Paris. It’s chilly outside, the cold biting the tips of your fingers as you take another drag of a cigarette. With a flick of your fingers, ash falls to the ground alongside drops of rain. It hasn’t let up for days now. You switch on the lamp light of your cab and get ready to begin your shift, who will end up in the back tonight?

We look at Night Call as a strong narrative experience with light resource management and investigation mechanics. Its power is certainly in the stories being told by the 70+ passengers you’ll encounter in the back of your cab. Some passengers detail whimsical lighthearted moments, others peculiar and thought provoking, and a few will come into the backseat with very dark accounts exploring themes not often seen in games. Night Call is not one story but rather a collective narrative from all these characters who have something to share and contributing to the greater investigation that you are now charged with being a part of. Will you find the killer running rampant in Paris?

You may have been coerced into aiding in this investigation, but the backseat of a cab is a confessional and its driver a person told the most intimate secrets before letting their passenger go and never seeing them again. Use this skill to bring a little bit of peace to the streets of Paris or it may be you who takes the fall. Start your shift, it’s going to be a long night.

About This Game



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…

KEY FEATURES:


🚖 A VIVID AND ORIGINAL CAST: Meet more than 70 original, surprising, realistic characters and share their lives for a few brief moments. Some may move you, inspire you, or upset you. Listen and help - they might have something useful for you.

🚖 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.

🚖 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 CASES, MULTIPLE KILLERS: Gather clues across three distinct cases. Can you uncover the identity of the killers? Be careful: a guilty suspect in one case may be completely innocent in the next.
