Dark Nights with Poe and Munro tasks players with keeping small-town radio hosts John ‘Poe’ Pope and Ellis Munro together and alive through six TV-like episodes of supernatural mystery. A standalone prequel to 2018’s The Shapeshifting Detective, Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is the third game from the studio but the first to be ported to consoles in-house. The game released on Steam in May 2020 to praise from players and reviewers alike and the studio hopes console players will take to it just as warmly.
The game features almost five hours of full screen HD video and interactive hotspots which can be frozen to give unlimited time for making decisions. Player choices open up different paths through each mystery leading to two or more endings for each episode. Klemens Koehring and Leah Cunard reprise their roles as Poe and Munro respectively, and FMV fan favourite Aislinn De’Ath cameos as guesthouse owner Violet. There are also guest voiceovers from Justin McElroy (The Adventure Zone, My Brother My Brother and Me), Jesse Cox (Monster Prom), David Homb (1995’s Phantasmagoria), and many more.
