Play OverviewPlay Overview

The Last Night is a narrative game set in a neon-bathed, hyper-advanced future where you are a second-class citizen wrestling with your place in the world. As you traverse the Blade-Runner-style city districts, you talk with characters, evade constant surveillance, and contemplate the meaning of living in a world where people are defined by what they consume rather than create. It stands out not only for its unique vision of the future but also for the complex and nuanced exploration of mental health and our relationship with the world of increasing automation and widening inequality.

Set in the distant future where machines outperform humans in ability, creativity, and productivity, civilisation has entered an era of leisure, where people consume rather than create. However, inequality still persists as the disadvantaged are left behind as the rest of society enjoys easier days. You play Charlie, a disillusioned and desperate second-class citizen who, due to a childhood accident, is unable to live like the rest of the people he sees. When an opportunity to escape the hopelessness of his life materialises, you enter a story of violence, deception, and greed that peels back the veneer of utopia and exposes the world for what it really is.

Play involves exploring the four main city districts and talking to the characters you meet along the way. You learn information that can help you on your secretive mission. At times, you need to sneak around dark alleyways and avoid detection by police and security drones, and sometimes find yourself needing to resort to violence and intimidation to serve your means or escape from a deadly situation.

The result is a game that challenges you not only through firefights, stealth, and intricate conversations but also asks you to re-examine your ideas of purpose and meaning in a world ever more dominated by machines and artificial intelligence.
