Not Tonight 2, the follow-up to post-Brexit bouncer game Not Tonight, is arriving on PC this February.
I dove into Not Tonight 2’s closed beta in September, concluding that I was “..definitely looking forward to getting our hands on its final incarnation and fully experiencing its disquieting blend of humour and political horror.” Because, make no mistake, Not Tonight 2 is more than a little horrific.
Sure, there might not be slimy things lurking in the walls, but as a immigrant worker in a post-Trump America, things have taken a turn for the worse. That’s not to say things were great before (I’m not convinced Biden will do anything more than restore the status quo) but the game sees your friend being whisked off to an internment camp for having left his papers at home.
You and your group of friends have to make your way across America, taking on bouncer work to fund your trip. So you’re tasked with checking IDs, administering free Canadian poutine (really) and so forth. If you’ve played Papers Please, you’ll have an idea of what to expect.
Now, publisher No More Robots has revealed when Not Tonight 2 will be seeing the light of day. It’s set for a February 11th 2022 release, landing on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. You can also sign up for this weekend’s final closed beta here.
