[PS4] Dark Nights with Poe and Munro Review | PS4Blog.net
Interactive FMV TV series Dark Nights with Poe and Munro from D’Avekki Studios is ready for you on PlayStation 4. Learn why this is an enjoyable experience in our Dark Nights with Poe and Munro review!
The husband-and-wife team at D’Avekki Studios has previously worked on FMV experiences The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, as well as on thriller The Shapeshifting Detective, which were published by Wales Interactive. This time around, we’re getting Dark Nights with Poe and Munroe, a FMV TV series of six episodes that acts as a prequel to The Shapeshifting Detective, in which you’ll be following local radio hosts Poe and Munro who find themselves caught in a series of supernatural adventures in something that will remind you at times of the X-Files with a healthy dose of British humor.
Before you begin, you should go into settings to customize your experience. Along with selecting the music volume and dialogue volume, you can also set the language, enable subtitles – and select the size at which they will display -, decide if you are willing to share your choices with other players and, most importantly, if you want to freeze trackers. Trackers are the small indicators that mark what you can interact with, affecting the direction an episode can take. By activating tracker freeze, you’ll have infinite time to make a decision.
Since there are different choices to make in each of the game’s episodes, it won’t be possible to see every branching path that the game has to offer for each of its stories. You can easily jump back and replay an episode and make the opposite set of choices to see where things lead you. Playing all episodes in a single run should take you around 3 hours at most, so you can roughly double that time to see every scene and experience all dialogue.
The trophy list for Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is a full one with a Platinum trophy for you to unlock. Some of them are tied to completing the first episode as well to completing every single episode. The rest of the trophies depend on the choices you make along the way, which will lead to specific scenes playing out. Without spoiling things, the first trophy you can get in the game can unlock during the first scene in the game when, if you press the right butto, you can activate a feline sound.
If you enjoyed The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker and The Shapeshifting Detective, then you’re going to have a great time with Dark Nights with Poe and Munro. The chemistry between both characters is great through the whole mini-series, and how it ties to the shared universe from the other two games from D’Avekki Studios. Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is out on PlayStation 4 is ready for you with a $12.99 asking price.
