The Last Night
The Last Night is a game directed by Tim Soret, who founded his video game studio Odd Tales in London.

Before becoming a real game, The Last Night was a small flash game made in 6 days, submitted to an online contest, the #CyberPunkJam. It won the competition among the 265 other games. This "draft" of The Last Night can still be played for free, in your browser, here.
Summary[edit | edit source]
The Last Night is a 2.5D cinematic adventure game, forging ahead on the path established by the greats such as Another World, Flashback and the Oddworld series. Set in a rich post-cyberpunk world, the game is aiming to update the vision seen in “Blade Runner” or “Ghost in the Shell”, while establishing a new standard for immersive pixel art.
Plot[edit | edit source]
The Last Night immerses you in the everyday life of Charlie, a second-class citizen living in a city brimming with augmentation and citizens living a gamified existence — none of which Charlie can experience himself due to a childhood accident. Apathetic and disheartened by the seemingly pointless world around him, Charlie is presented with an opportunity to take matters into his own hands. But at what risk?
