An Exploration of Tokyo, March 17, 2016
In Akabane Nights, you play as a vampire searching a small part of Tokyo for blood to drink. Depending on hunger and time, you will be able to attack different people as they move areund the city.

Akabane Nights has a small world to explore, and not many people to talk to or target, but these are well done. At dawn, you get a list of other things to try, and once those are done, the exploration is mostly complete.

Owerall, it's a fun game.

Enjoyable atmospheric exploration, March 10, 2016
by streever (America)
Akabane Nights is a fairly small, short experience that convincingly creates a sense of greater depth and openness.

The story is told from the perspective of a vampire who wakes up and seeks sustenance from human prey; major decisions which involve conflict and causing harm to others are mixed with mundane day-to-day decisions about showering and basic hygiene.

The contrast of the serious and the inconsequential creates a deeper experience, and makes the otherwise alien perspective more relatable and human.

The author has included atmospheric gifs of dark, moving city scenes and other small graphical flourishes which break up the otherwise dense text nicely, but the type could use additional formatting; it's small and at times straining to read.

The sense of place is strong; I felt as if I was actually exploring an unfamiliar city and learning about it.

The choices are strong, and well-telegraphed; this is not a piece that relies on sneaky choices or tricks. In all, it's highly recommended.
