How the Game is set?
As Dusk Falls is set in such a way that each player gets to control a family member interchangeably. This leads to a series of gripping choices as the players sometimes have to make decisions not in favor of a character they were previously playing. This has the players in a major dilemma because the choice they make at this point could change the course of their character’s future.
Further, the game follows a narrative-centric theme. In such games, the players are in control of the different dialogue choices and their character’s next move. Each option that the player picks at this point shows its effects in the future. Each decision is intermingled with the other. At the end of each chapter, the summary is shown. This displays how each decision leads to a different outcome. The best part of this model of the game is that the players can always restart the game and end up having a completely different storyline.
