Indie developer D’Avekki Studios is thrilled to announce today their much-anticipated FMV-TV game Dark Nights with Poe and Munro will release on Steam for PC and Mac on 19th May 2020.
Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is an FMV adventure in six TV-like episodes focusing on the chemistry between local radio hosts John ‘Poe’ Pope and Ellis Munro as they encounter a series of supernatural happenings in the small town of August.
The announcement, which comes a year after the studio started developing the game as a standalone prequel to The Shapeshifting Detective, is accompanied by a 2-minute official launch trailer which can be viewed here:
“We’re very excited to be bringing players back to the world of August, in our biggest budget FMV game yet,” says D’Avekki Studios director Tim Cowles. “Watching Poe and Munro sleuth their way through each mysterious episode is a captivating and cathartic experience, which will hopefully provide some enjoyable escapism for people right now.”
