Video games cannot(can) be political. We’ve seen games had professed to be a political-based adventure, something like “The Political Machine 2020,” which exhibited the US election atmosphere though it’s not but a good way of approach.
Albeit it’s about choosing the presidential candidates, the previous version of the game is way better than the latest one. With its simplistic gameplay, humor played a pivotal role in the game. However, we aren’t far away from the most superlative “Dark Political Comedy ” game, “Not tonight 2,” getting released on Steam.
How would it relate to US politics? If you could see the trailer of the game, at the last cut, the team decided to show the statue of liberty utterly drowned in the river until they liberated half of the personified women’s hand “lifting the torch,” whereas her left-hand clenches a tablet bearing notebook completely submerged.
Not Tonight 2 PC beta had launched on January 28. The game is due to release on Steam today on February 11. The single-player console version will arrive later in 2022; the exact date hasn’t been revealed officially.
The game is being developed by Panic Barn and is being published initially by No more robots, whose inventory includes ‘Descenders’, ‘Yes, Your Grace’, ‘Hypnospace Outlaw’. Both the company headquartered in Britain, which has nothing to do with the context of the game.
The story has been written by three POC writers. “Not Tonight” is proclaimed the best political game ever made. The first sequel came three years after its original game was released in 2018. The original game mainly focuses on things that happened after Brexit, which created the situation for the sequel.
In “Not Tonight 2,” players take their journey across a splintered America to save their friend Eduardo Suarez, who has been captured by the American authorities and is now counting the bars in a Miami Gulag. It is a document checking game, which allows you to explore the America where capitalism and political competition have been raised and puts a question mark on the democracy of the country.
With plotting your direction to America, you will be able to partake in a combination of politically driven minigames, work all day on the Mexican border, serve cool drinks, assess religion, check chickens, play rhythm games, and there will be more explorable locations are yet to be discovered in broken America.
