When As Dusk Falls debuted in July, it culminated eight years of conceptualization and introduced an independent studio.

This is the first game from the INTERIOR/NIGHT studio, headed by Caroline Marchal, its CEO and creative director. “I’m very proud that this is our first game as a studio,” says Marchal, who acts as the showrunner for this specific game. “It’s not often you can make a first impression, and I wanted ours to be bold.” As Dusk Falls is available on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC and Twitch.
