A polished and stylish Night Vale-style game with investigation and danger, May 28, 2020
by MathBrush
Related reviews: less than 15 minutes

I grade games on a scale of 5 stars, in the following criteria:

*Polish. This game is very polished, with custom sounds, varying backgrounds and images, complex menus and text input.
*Descriptiveness. This game nails the Night Vale voice and has vivid non-descriptions of real things and real descriptions of non-things.
*Interactivity. I felt like my choices mattered and had consequences. The game wasn't quite linear and not quite lawn-mowery, and I felt good.
*Emotional impact. I felt amused.
*Would I play again? I think I would.

This is a game in which you have to track down The News, a wild beast which has escaped in Night Vale, a town where every conspiracy theory is true.

short and sweet task as a Night Vale Community Radio intern , August 8, 2018

Related reviews: night vale, short

I adore Welcome to Night Vale and I adored this short little game. Full of references to the podcast, you're an intern at the radio station who's trying to track down The News. You get to do things like chat with Steve Carlsberg (ugh, Steve!) and visit the Desert Flower Bowling Alley and Arcade Fun Complex.
