Play OverviewPlay Overview

As Dusk Falls (2020) is an interactive Drama following two families that intertwine with each other over thirty years, set in Arizona. You can play on your own, but it's best in a group of up to 8 players who use a smartphone app to make choices, like PlayLink games on PlayStation.

You choose how characters interact and talk to each other and the choices they make. It's made from some of the team behind Detroit: Become Human and reflects similar aspects in storytelling. Ultimately, these decisions have an impact on the future of the story and shape what happens.

The game has a visual style similar to Heaven's vault, which resembles a stop-motion graphic novel but in a cinematic animated world. All dialogue is spoken and builds a mature narrative. With very few games like this it's a new and unique style that may develop in the future of popular narrative games.

It's a story that starts in the middle and then spirals out to encompass multiple points of view over a thirty year span. It explores the past, present and future of a single dramatic night. It asks questions about the influence of a toxic, but loving, family. Questions our power to really start over by moving home or changing jobs. And offers a chance to reflect on overcoming the past.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 16 for strong violence, use of illegal drugs, strong language and prominent use of alcohol and tobacco. Violence is realistically presented, with several scenes showing characters being hit or shot with guns. In one scene, a character is struck with the butt of a gun, which knocks him to the ground. There is sight of illegal drugs being used, with characters shown taking ecstasy and smoking marijuana. In addition, there is a scene in which two characters inhale lighter fluid.

There are several scenes in which the player is given the opportunity to drink alcohol, and many characters are depicted smoking. This game contains use of strong language ('*!@?*'), as well as milder terms including '*!@?*', 'pussy', '*!@?*' and '*!@?*'. There is a scene in which a character is executed by lethal injection. The player only sees the character strapped down and a button being pressed to administer the first injection, rather than the full execution.
In another scene, it is implied that a couple are having sex. However, the sexual activity occurs off screen, with noises of creaking and moaning heard from the next room. Once the sex is finished, the scene moves to the bedroom, where the woman is seen getting off the man and going to sleep.
Users Interact: The game enables players to interact and communicate with each other, so may expose players to language usually associated with older rated games.
