Director of The Last Night Reveals Crippling Development Delays

The Last Night

Tim Soret, founder of Odd Tales, recently tweeted an explanation of the struggles that his studio’s new indie title, The Last Night, faced in 2018.

According to Soret, Odd Tales encountered numerous issues throughout the game’s development in 2018. Details of these complications come sparsely due to business and legal matters that Soret claims he cannot speak openly about.

Such matters have led to funding issues, and Odd Tales is now publicly raising money in hopes to press forward with The Last Night‘s development.

The Last Night is a 2.5D cinematic platformer where society has been taken over by computers and machinery. As described by Soret himself, the game explores “a free-to-live world of endless, personalized consumption of content generated by artificial intelligence where Charlie, the main character, lets his loneliness and social isolation transform into bitterness and resentment.”

The title takes inspiration from Flashback, a 1992 science-fiction platformer and one of the first games to popularize cinematic gameplay.

The Last Night was originally expected to release in 2018, and no further word of an updated timeline has been disclosed by Odd Tales. The project is set to for release on Xbox and PC.

Spider-Man

Sony Interactive Entertainment has posted an advertisement on LinkedIn for both an audio designer and senior audio designer, sparking rumours of a Spider-Man sequel.

The recent hirings indicate that Insomniac is indeed working on something new for PlayStation fans to enjoy. With Spider-Man being such a massive hit alongside an officially licensed comic expanding on Insomniac’s Spider-verse, players could get a sequel sooner rather than later.

The official job posting requirements for the senior audio designer are as follows:

“Responsible for being an active and key contributor for the creative direction and style for audio assets and workflow processes throughout a production cycle. Creates, edits, and implements game-ready audio. Works closely with the rest of the audio team to maintain a high level of quality and consistency of assets.”

While the job posting does not guarantee a sequel, PlayStation fans can rest easy knowing another juicy exclusive is in the pipeline.
