Each chapter only takes about an hour to get through, making As Dusk Falls a pretty short game. However, due to its branching narrative, it’s also a pretty replayable one. If you’re curious to see how a chapter you’ve already played could unfold, you can select “Explore Story Tree” when choosing to replay a chapter to view a flowchart of your possible choices. The flowchart doesn’t exactly tell you what outcomes your new choices will result in, but it does indicate roughly where in the level you might unlock a new route.

The developer behind As Dusk Falls, Interior/Night, is headed by Caroline Marchal, a former Quantic Dream employee who was the lead game designer on both Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human
