There are achievements, but the list hasn't been released yet.

EDIT: Just got sent the final internal test build. It's looking fantastic.

Impressions are starting to roll in ahead of the launch today. Well, one has.

https://tinyurl.com/y5fvp93y

Waypoint radio, of VICE's gaming arm, have a fairly extensive discussion of the game on their most recent podcast (thanks Maf!) which starts at minute 34 above.

It's...a really interesting take.

The long story short is that the reviewer Rob was super excited to get hold of the game and is now slightly less enthusiastic. This is due to his general dislike of what he calls visual novels (which I'd maaaaaybe dispute as an accurate classification for the game) but also due to some of the writing and gameplay elements. I'd say it's probably a 7/10 review overall.

Nice that it's finally out there and getting played and reviewed - must be such a strange mix of emotions! (I get stressed just worrying what people think of things like Mario Maker levels, I'd be a wreck if a full game I was involved in was out there in the wild! :lol: )

Is there a date for the Switch release yet?

There is an approximate date for Switch...but I can't tell you. Sorry!

And yeah, it's an odd feeling. We know what we expect the reviews to say so it'll be interesting to see if it all matches up.

This looks exactly like my kind of thing. Will be looking forward to it when it reaches XBox, which i understand will be later in the year.

Does this mean Taf and the team are dirty capitalist sellout scumbags by going to game pass for release?

I only hate capitalism when it's not paying me.

Hey, that's pretty cool! Better than the podcast impressions suggested it would be!

Eurogamer also gave us a Recommended badge which is pretty damn brill.

Either way, Night Call got to me. It's a game that loops around and around inside my head when I'm not playing, the car endlessly circling the block, never stopping, while that plane jets overhead, lights blinking.

Hope the achievements work properly on XB1. Wanted to give this a whirl but not if I can't finish it.

Yay! This includes the DLC too. If anyone can spot the characters I wrote you get a cookie.

Was it ever confirmed that it would be on Game Pass on console? I don’t want to assume it will be.
