You know a game is trying really hard to offend you when the opening scene has the lead character mumbling about a dead woman in a body bag having great tits. From the casual swearing to the pilfering of batteries from dead women's vibrators, the developers of Midnight Nowhere try so ridiculously hard to offend you that it almost becomes quite endearing after a while.
I stress the almost', because the end product is a tactless, laboured point-and-clicker riddled with fundamental gameplay flaws. When you get stuck, it's not because of the game's intricate puzzles - it's because there are invisible, unmarked pockets on a dead nurse that are as tiny and unclickable as a gnat's chuff. Puzzles are illogical and so frustrating that I guarantee that no-one will complete it without cheating. Or having a nervous breakdown.
There's no denying the atmosphere is intriguing. I honestly tried to enjoy the gratuitousness of the whole thing, but unfortunately, the game wouldn't let me. It's dull, mistranslated, claustrophobic (in a bad way) and thoroughly aimless. No amount of naked women adorning the walls can disguise the fact that Midnight Nowhere simply isn't much fun.
