Night Book is an adventure game set in occult thriller convention and using FMV technology. Game is a result of cooperation between Good Gate Media studio and Wales Interactive company, which has in its portfolio such titles as The Complex, Five Dates or Maid of Sker.
The protagonist of Night Book is Loralyn. In the absence of her husband, who is far from home, a pregnant woman takes care of her mentally ill father and also works remotely as a translator. One night, unaware of the consequences of her actions, she reads an ancient book and summons a demon to her home. From now on her life turns into a real nightmare, and how her fate will turn out depends on the decisions we make.
In terms of mechanics Night Book doesn't differ too much from what we're used to from other productions made with FMV technology. During the game, we follow the conversations carried out by the heroine with the use of webcam, gradually getting to know both Loralyn herself and the relationships connecting her with particular people. As befits a thriller, as the game progresses we witness more and more terrifying events involving the protagonist. From time to time we have to make choices that affect the further course of the story and determine the protagonist's fate, which leads to one of several endings.
Apart from the interface, Night Book has no visuals; the game consists only of scenes with the participation of real actors. Leading the cast are Julie Dray (Avenue 5) and Colin Salmon (Resident Evil, Mortal Engines). It is worth noting that the entire project was shot remotely, during a lockdown.
