When The Night Comes
Right of the bat, I have to say that When The Night Comes is one of the most interesting visual novel games I have played in a very, very long time. Those who love a good murder mystery story and like hot characters and even romance are going to be in for a great time with this game. Above everything else, this is a story with a lot of heart and characters you will actually grow to care about and that is what I really want from a game like this.
You Are A Hunter
The first thing I have to talk about is the setting of the game. The world that this game is set has humans and “magical” creatures living side by side. This sounds great, but the relationship between the two sides has not always been great. When The Night Comes really works well in making you feel like you are actually in this place! You play as a human hunter and you are kind of like a police person. You are tasked with solving a bunch of grisly murders and finding out what the heck is going on.
6 Of The Best
This is a visual novel style game so you will be talking to many characters as you play. There are six characters that you can romance in the game. One cool thing in the game is that it is very LGBT friendly. The characters that you can romance are, Ezra who is a witch, Finn, who is a vampire, Piper a former hunter, August who you report to and is a witch, Omen who is a demon and Alkar who is a Lycan. The cast of characters is fantastic and you, if you play your cards right, can romance more than one at the same time.
What I really like about the characters in When The Night Comes is that they all feel real. They are not just six random characters; they each have their own backstories and some even cross over with each other making you get even more invested in what is going on. You have many choices to make in order to move the story forward. The game is good in that it will let you know if a choice is flirt or fight and you really do have to think about what you are saying.
The Supernatural Never Looked So Good
This is a great looking game. The characters have a kind of “human” appearance to them, but then each “race” also has their own characteristics which I thought was well done. The backgrounds are excellent and really do a great job of bringing this place to life. There are some very risqué CG pictures that you can unlock as you play and these will require multiple playthroughs.
In all, I think that When The Night Comes is a very well done game. I had a great time with this and it is actually spread out over 6 episodes and it is done in the same kind of format as a TV show. Now that I think about it, this game would translate very well to a TV show! If you like a visual novel to have a strong story and very likable characters as well as a bit of the macabre, you will have a hard time finding one better than this.
