Man the doors of pubs, clubs, festivals and parties, finding work via the BouncR app Check IDs, manage guestlists, and stop revellers from becoming unruly Upgrade your apartment, bouncer and equipment to better prepare yourself for the future Decide what lengths you'll go to in order to survive in a Britain on the verge of collapse

Review from Steam

Not Tonight is such a wonderful game. If you're on the fence about purchasing it, I say just buy it. Especially if it's on sale. This game is super similar to Papers Please, except that you're a bouncer at various clubs/parties with amazing music to boot. I found myself bobbing my head almost every day working at the clubs. I had a great time playing this game, my only gripe is that the saving system is pretty confusing? If you want to go backwards and reload a save on a certain day, you need to have another slot open. I ended up deleting my entire save because I found this confusing so now I can't go back and fix something that I fucked up on to get another ending? But that's my fault! So, make sure you have another slot open if you're going to go back to a previous day to try and get a different ending.
Pros:
- It has some good tunes
- Shannon grew onto me more than I thought she would
- Story is pretty good
Cons:
- Besides what I mentioned earlier about the reloading/saving system, this game is great.
- Couldn't marry Galahag LOL
8.5/10!

Review from Steam

People say that this is a Papers, Please copy and I completely disagree. Not Tonight has it's own identity. Yes, some features like checking the documents and giving reasons on why you did so are like it but that's about it.
The atmosphere is completely different, almost each song is a banger.
The story is really well-written with comedic effects added in a dystopian setting.
The gameplay is fun, interactive and has a great effect on what ending you're gonna get.
The engine is nice, but I really wish that the save option was different. You need another slot to get saved on what you've done for the main game and I lost so much time to realise that that I was about to try and quit 100%-ing the game at some point because I thought my progress wasn't saving, but it was shown to be a few days behind, in another save, on the day I was on which was confusing af to figure out.
Other than my problem with saving the game, I think that this is a better Papers, Please. More customizable, the story feels more well-written with more twists and a more pleasing experience overall.

Review from Steam

I can't help but compare it to Papers, Please (even the UI is almost identical), and doing that makes it hard not to see where it's lacking. It never got too hard and it dragged a LOT in places. Doing the same routine day in and day out with little to no changes or additions. There wasn't any emotional weight to anything, either. Ending was anticlimactic.
But for a micro-management game where you have to pay attention to all the little details of IDs (including passwords and guestlists and multiple lines of people) it scratches the itch and it's fun.

Review from Steam

Pretty fun, the comparison to Papers Please is obvious, same mechanics. Some people will tell you it's a very different game but I felt it was pretty close, checking IDs, character plot lines, government issues, multiple endings, etc.
I highly recommend playing this game till the end (it's not a super long game despite my hours played on it). The ending was really cool, and the post ending scene was really neat too.
The music in the game, although somewhat muffled most of the time is pretty great too. There's a couple songs I looked up afterwards to hear them again. 1 in particular is Shame by Sebastian Forsland, kind of a Soundgarden feel to it.
------------------------------
Control Scheme I Used:
Mouse and Keyboard, don't think you'd want to play it any other way.
------------------------------
Worth the current price (CDN$ 22.79)?
What I actually paid: approx $2-3 as part of Humble Choice Monthly bundle.
------------------------------
Completionist Review:
DLC Achievements: There is DLC, but no achievements for it.
Rating: Depends if you do everything right the first run.
Can be completed in one run: Mostly yes if you do it right. I had to replay 2/3 of the game.
Chapter Select: You can reload any day you want, it it will branch a new timeline from that day.
May get repetitive if you fail a certain part of the game and have to replay a bunch, but I found it was pretty quick and you can skip days if needed. Depending on my mood, the game either got slightly boring, or i could play for long periods of time and still be entertained by it. On my 2nd playthrough I played through almost all in 1 sitting and really enjoyed it.
