As Dusk Falls was revealed in 2020, and it’s a story of two families who have their lives intertwined over the course of 30 years, using an incredibly unique visual art style of 2D painted characters in a 3D world. Each character has had their performance captured by actors on set, which is then translated into the 2D style.
You can watch the new footage and behind-the-scenes details of As Dusk Falls below:
Players will be able to interact with the story by making decisions during conversation, much like in the well-known Telltale Games-style of interactivity. Developed by Interior/Night, the game starts in 1998 with a robbery-gone-wrong, with each character’s life set in the balance of the player’s own choices.
“Replay the story again and again to uncover vastly different outcomes for the characters and explore hidden nuances behind every decision. Will your characters survive unscathed? What kind of people will they ultimately become?” asks the game’s Steam page.
There’s still no concrete release date for As Dusk Falls, although the title is slated to release “in the near future” on Steam.
