Hostile aliens have invaded Earth, but being intelligent themselves, have taken human form to thwart efforts to dispose of them. In Nightmarea's upcoming game, Between The City and The Needle, it's up to you to discern who's faking and the real deal, by "posing" as a psychologist and brutally interrogating suspects via polite conversation.
As you can see in the above teaser, the presentation is reminiscent of Papers, Please, but with a cyan, sci-fi twist. There's nothing playable just yet, but the planned feature list promises nine different endings, some 40 people with "their own personal motivations and traits" to chat to and of course, the all-powerful ability to send untrustworthy citizens to be dissected, proving your suspicions correct.
Or embarrassingly incorrect. But let's not think about that.
It sounds like a delicious idea that will succeed or fail based on the quality of dialogue and complexity of the interactions. Given there will be almost 10 endings on offer, it's unlikely to be a paint-by-numbers game and could even have a degree of replayability, depending on how many suspects you converse with each time around.
