A 70’s noir detective story, Hotel Dusk puts players into the well-worn shoes of former cop-turned-insurance agent Kyle Hyde, who books a room in the strange hotel in order to solve the mystery of his ex-partner’s death. The puzzles are split between conversational investigation, interrogation and environmental interaction, making for an interesting gameplay style—that said it’s worth tracking this one down just for its pencil sketch look, though the hard boiled story doesn’t hurt.
