In A Near Dawn you play Sam, the sole remaining employee of a law firm that’s decided to stick with his boss out of loyalty after everyone else moved on to a bigger firm. You are gearing up for a big lawsuit against a multinational company that could make or break your firm depending on the results. However there is also a darkness inside you – a voice that haunts your nightmares and is starting to have an affect on your real life now too…
The current build of A Near Dawn consists of the prologue to the main game, which takes around 15 minutes to complete and introduces some of the main characters. It plays out using a mix of point and click adventure and visual novel gameplay mechanics, with your choices affecting how the narrative plays out.
The current build only gives a taste of the narrative planned for the full game, but it’s certainly intriguing. The artwork, writing and voice work are excellent throughout, really drawing you in and adding a lot of personality to the characters you meet. A funny, charming and creepy adventure with a great sense of style, we’ll look forward to seeing the sun rise on this impressive psychological thriller.
