Another sci-fi adventure joins ScummVM

Post by SupSuper »

From 1940 to 2099, Nightlong: Union City Conspiracy is now ready for public testing. Take the role of private investigator Joshua Reev in this cyberpunk-themed adventure released in 1998 by Trecision, featuring pre-rendered environments and 3D software rendering. Uncover the conspiracy, and all the bugs!

Thanks to the original developers for providing us the source code, and to SupSuper, Strangerke, bluegr and madmoose for porting it to ScummVM.

All Windows versions of the game are supported, as well as original savegames, check the wiki for required datafiles. If you don't own the game we have demos available. To test you will need the latest daily build of ScummVM. As always, please submit the bug reports to our issue tracker.

I'm happy to report that the game is completable with the latest daily build. There are still a few glitches here and there (which I've reported), but it's generally looking good!

Hopefully ScummVM support will convince GOG (or whoever) to start selling the game so that more people have a chance to play it. It's pretty good.

I'm so impatient to see it coming on the macOS build. Thank you so much for your hard work, and to the original developper for his involvement I wasn't expecting it at all :D I finished that game several times as a teenager, and I think with Sanitarium it's the only adventure game from my youth I couldn't play again. Yay :D :D :D
(oh and thank you Kurufinwe for reporting the bugs, as a French I feel lucky someone is already taking care of the "œ" character which are easily overlooked usually :P)

What do you mean by that? The engine is available on all platforms since the announcement, e.g. June 11th.
