The Last Night is an amazing little flash game (see website above), and now it is beocming a full blown release on PS4/PC/MAC!!!!!!!

Seriously everyone try it out at the site above (the flash demo). It is basically a cyberpunk 2D platformer with amazing sound design (play it with earphones to hear an amazing soundtrack with fantastic sound effects). The gameplay is solid, hopefully they have a good storyline to keep us hooked! Kickstarter begins next year.

Upscaled pixels, but those visual effects are really nice. Blade Runner vibe.

Some real artists worked on this game. It looks incredible.

I guess the PS4 version was cancelled?

This is really cool! Gonna keep an eye on it. I like the Blade Runner vibe overall. I think they even use some of Vangelis' score at the beginning when the music first starts up, but I am not sure.

Also, for the lols:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Night_(video_game)#Controversy

Wikipedia wrote:Controversy

Following the game's premiere during Microsoft's presentation at E3 2017, Tim Soret was noted to have previously posted statements around 2014 and since on social media that were seen as pro-Gamergate, and antifeminism. Coupled with the descriptors used within the game's marketing material, such as "second-class citizen" and "gamified existence" which were seen as aligned with these views, some took to Odd Tales and Raw Fury to have them stop publishing the game. Tim replied following this that his stance from his previous position has since changed, and that The Last Night was in no way meant to be commentary surrounding the Gamergate controversy. He apologized for his past tweets while on stage during the PC Gaming Show the next day, stating "They don’t in any way represent where I am today or what The Last Night will be about". Raw Fury supported Tim, stating: "The comments Tim made in 2014 are certainly surprising and don’t fit the person we know, and we hope that everyone reading this who knows us at Raw Fury on a personal and professional level knows that we wouldn’t tolerate working with someone who portrays the caricature of Tim going around the internet right now." In an interview with Vice, Tim Soret said that while The Last Night has themes that others see as right-wing, such as criticizing the concept of Universal Basic Income, his goal with the game is not to be critical of these elements, but only to describe a world that took a certain trajectory to implement these elements, for better or worse, and explore the new problems that were introduced. Soret compared this approach to the movies Gattaca and Wall-E, neither of which he felt politicized the situation and further supported the belief that the tweets had been overblown by a few people trying to create a controversy to benefit themselves.

The controversy around Soret and The Last Night led to the situation being called a "Milkshake Duck", a meme introduced about a year prior but that gained wider usage following this controversy.
