The next title on our big EGX rundown is Not Tonight, which has been out for over a year now, but is now coming over to Nintendo Switch.
Not Tonight is set during a post-Brexit England where Brexit talks goes up the swanny. And an extreme far-right government is in place and it particularly hates anyone European and is rounding them all up and deporting them. You play as a person of European heritage #112 who works as a bouncer and has to make a decision in keeping your head down and earning enough money to stay in a country that hates you – Or help the resistance and take on the regime.
Now, while the comparisons to Papers Please are very strong (though never particularly played it myself). It plays incredibly fluidly and the progression feels natural, the game starts simply with checking DOB but then it gets more complicated from there, with RPG elements in which to upgrade, your apartment and equipment.
I like the art style as it’s simplistic, not overbearing, yet original and soundtrack very much spot on, and does play smoothly on the Switch when I tested it.
I will be very much picking this up when it eventually comes to the Switch, as its on my one-to-watch list, but it’s available on Steam already if you can’t wait.
