The Night is Grey

A charmingly eerie point and click adventure that takes the player through a dark and mysterious forest, The Night is Grey is an excellent throwback to a bygone era of interactive adventures that put an emphasis on narrative over visual spectacle.

In an industry that sees most horror games as a sort of “flavor of the month” jumpscare extravaganza, the simplicity and enthralling narrative quality of The Night is Grey comes as a breath of fresh air for the psychological horror genre. Let’s see what players might expect to find in this amazing thriller once it releases later this year.

Traditional Thriller Experience

One of the most outstanding aspects of The Night is Grey is the developers’ commitment to crafting an interactive experience that feels just like a classic point and click adventure — but one that also includes some necessary quality of life improvements that modern audiences might be expecting.

While we’ve seen some great adventure games (like Thimbleweed Park) in recent years, The Night is Grey goes one step beyond some other similar games by using a visually-striking presentation that uses some traditional animation techniques. The result is an experience that feels just retro enough to be charming, without sacrificing some necessary improvements like an intuitive UI and challenging puzzles.

The story takes place in a solitary forest that seems to be inhabited by some odd-looking wolves. Our protagonist flees for his life until he comes across an abandoned lodge where a lost girl tries to survive on her own.

Through clever-written dialogue and an outstanding narrative, the player will see how the bond between these two characters grows ever closer, as together they try to survive the dangers of the mysterious dark forest. The Night is Grey is a psychological thriller that excels at storytelling, taking what seems to be a small and simple story to clever new heights.

Outstanding Presentation

As we mentioned before, The Night is Grey is a visual masterpiece when it comes to presenting its captivating story with a unique animated look. Using digitally-painted backgrounds and traditionally-animated characters, the game’s look is something that looks like nothing we’ve seen in an adventure game before.

While some other psychological thrillers like Oxenfree have a minimalist look that complements their overall presentation, The Night is Grey makes clever use of its unique presentation to elevate its storytelling potential.

The 12-frames-per-second animation technique used in the game makes The Night is Grey look like a classic 2D point and click adventure that’s been animated for TV. It’s a visual style that’s tough to describe, and that’s not even mentioning the outstanding orchestral soundtrack.

The true orchestral sound makes the experience of playing The Night is Grey feel all the more impressive. This is the logical evolution of point and click adventure games done right, and we’re sure that old-school gamers will fall in love with the game’s stellar presentation and engrossing narrative.
