After three years of development, it seems like we are finally going to see much more of The Last Night, a cinematic platformer inspired by the great cyberpunk stories, which has just released a teaser trailer that reveals that the project has been joined by publisher Raw Fury, and it promises more news during this year.
The Last Night makes use of a stunning visual design with handcrafted 2D scenarios built in style of the 16 bits-era adventures, giving the impression of a modernized take on classics like Another World, Flashback or Oddworld. The story is set in a futuristic city with a dark and melancholic atmosphere; a mix of science fiction and noir film that immediately reminds you of 80s movie classic Blade Runner.
Developer Odd Tales has been working on this project since brothers Tim Soret and Adrien Soret won the #cyberpunkjam with a prototype of the adventure created in only six days. Now they work on the version destined to transform the original work in a full videogame for consoles, PC and Mac.
The game will allow players to explore the futuristic settings using taxis, ferries, or a monorail to move through the city. As a cinematic platformer, we will make use of action and infiltration mechanics, and experience varied gameplay such as driving down highways, flying drones, or hacking androids in order to perform actions without being detected.
We will also have multiple solutions to resolve some situations, such as running away, arguing with other characters in order to gain some time, or simply shooting enemies with our gun. The game will also be populated by a complex assembly of characters, that will make the city feel like a real, living world.
