E3 2017: The Last Night revealed, shows off an incredibly stylized Cyberpunk world
Coming to Xbox One and PC.
With all of the big game announcements that were made at Microsoft's E3 2017 presser, a little game called The Last Night debuted in what is perhaps the most stylish trailer of all. The Last Night is described as a post-cyberpunk cinematic platformer that takes place in a dystopia where humans are slowly destroying themselves through the creation of AI that does everything for them. Work and creativity have all but disappeared and many people find themselves caught in a hopeless quest for meaning.
Here is the debut trailer:
It's certainly a more novel approach to dystopian worlds in games, which typically lay blame at the feet of mega corporations and tyrannical governments for the undoing of humanity. What's creepy about The Last Night's narrative setup is that it's completely plausible. An announcement post on the game's Steam page describes people "defining themselves by what they consume, not what they create," which adds a much more refreshing spin on the whole humanity going to hell trope.
The Last Night doesn't have a release date at the moment, but it is currently scheduled to arrive sometime in 2018.
