White Night, developed by OSome Studio and published by Activision, is a noir survival horror game that’s quickly nearing its launch. You can watch the newest trailer for the game above.
In the developers’ own words:
Set in Boston in the 1930s, White Night is an old-school survival horror adventure with a distinct black-and-white film noir look that grabs you immediately. We wanted to create something that people would enjoy, but also something that would stand out as unusual and refreshing in today’s survival horror landscape. That meant revisiting the themes that made classic horror games like the original Alone in the Dark so gripping: mature storytelling, strong characters, compelling environments, and equal respect for tension and terror. White Night is a good old ghost story full of mystery, poetry, alchemy, and suspense.
And true to classic survival horror fashion, it’s set in a deserted mansion.
According to the game’s official website, players must solve puzzles and collect matches in order to light their way, and delve deeper into the darkness of the mansion, while avoiding “apparitions”. White Night starts when the protagonist of the game crashes his car near a (seemingly abandoned) mansion.
White Night has been developed for Windows, Linux, and Mac PCs, and the Xbox One and Playstation 4 home consoles. Although the game’s latest promotional videos state that it’s launching on April 3, Osome Studio has confirmed the release date is actually March 3.
