FMV adventure Dark Nights with Poe and Munro released for Linux

By - | Views: 15,599

After a short Beta period that we wrote about earlier in March, the modern FMV adventure game Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is now natively released and support for Linux systems from D'Avekki Studios Ltd.

"Adventure in the strange town of August with local radio hosts and secret lovers Poe and Munro, as they encounter six unique mysteries on and off the air. Direct the banter and the action as they fend off a nightmare stalker who just won’t let go, a vengeful ghost looking for everlasting closure, a demonic painting that grants wishes - and more - but can you keep Poe and Munro together, and alive…?"

D'Avekki Studios Ltd. previous titles include The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker from 2017 and The Shapeshifting Detective from 2018. This latest FMV is actually set before the events in The Shapeshifting Detective as a standalone spin-off, so you don't need to have played it but you might get a little extra enjoyment if you have.

The developer sent over a key and I must admit, it's quite fascinating. Completely weird, quirky and a bit corny at times with the acting but it's also weirdly engrossing. Quite different to how most other FMVs are done, with it being much more of an interactive movie and less of a proper adventure. It gives you a few options at various points, without too much of a clue on what the options actually do and you're timed on these options as well. The timers adds to the suspense in a pretty great way though, and I can't imagine playing it differently - thankfully though you can freeze them in the options to take more time with it if that's how you wish to play.

If you like a thoroughly strange experience that's a lot of fun, do give Dark Nights with Poe and Munro a click. Worth playing through multiple times thanks to alternate endings, and different narrative branches it goes through based on your choices.

You can buy it on Steam.

Both my wife and I enjoyed playing this game and selecting different paths, which often led to quite different outcomes in each chapter. Prior to this I hadn't played an FMV game since Phantasmagoria :-)

Highly recommended with some hammy but very enjoyable acting!

Ah, that one and Gabriel Knight: A Beast Within were awesome! Sierra didn't make very many before they switched over to cartoon style animation (too expensive to make, probably), but I thought it was some of their best work. The Tex Murphy games were also great.

Yes, this is great fun. I also have Dekker, but that requires typing so I haven't played it (yet I hope) as I tend to gravitate towards the sofa.

I think I'll give this one a try as well!

FMVs have a bad reputation but I have enjoyed or even loved most of those I've played: Phantasmagoria, Realms of the Haunting, Gabriel Knight 2: The Beast Within, Under a Killing Moon, Pandora Directive, Overseer and Tesla Effect.

So this is one special sub-genré that I'm very fond of.

Tried Contradicion? Not native (but works great in proton) and worked extremely well for a FMV.

No I haven't. Though reading about the gameplay reminds me a little of "L.A. Noire", the game does sound interesting. Putting it on my wishlist. Thanks!
