Until Dawn

Set in Western Canada, Until Dawn centers around a group of eight teenagers who decide to vacation for a night in a cabin on the fictional Blackwood Mountain, exactly one year after the disappearance of two girls, who the eight friends were acquainted with. Shortly after arriving, the gang find themselves under attack by a “psychopath”, and must attempt to survive until sunrise. Throughout the adventure, players alternate between all eight characters, making critical decisions as the story advances which drastically affects the game’s outcome, leading to thousands of different scenarios.
Until Dawn was met with a positive critical response upon release, with praise directed at the visuals, ‘choice’ mechanic, horror elements, music, characters, voice acting, and gameplay design. Most of the criticism the game drew concerned the second half of the story, the camera angles, character movement, and the game’s partially linear plot.
