First, to stave off disappointment, it seems Daedalic Entertainment’s The Night of the Rabbit isn’t, in fact, a video game version of Night of the Lepus.
No, instead of answering the question, “What happened that night science made its gravest mistake?” The Night of the Rabbit is an adventure game that asks “What if magic truly did exist?”
Free your imagination and lose yourself in a tale of magic and wonder, where anything is possible and where nothing is quite as it seems. Join young Jerry and follow a peculiar white rabbit to the wondrous realm of Mousewood, a land where critters can speak and mystery abounds. It is here that Jerry’s dream of being a magician comes true, though a haunting, sinister force casts a long shadow over the forest. As the dark power rises, the residents of Mousewood have only Jerry to turn to. On an adventure full of laughter and tears, joy and fear, the young boy will face the ultimate trial, leaving behind the world he once knew, and his childhood, too, will become a thing of the past.
Yeah, that sounds nothing like the trailer above, so take a look at the much more pleasant (and accurate) trailer below, which was just released today.
The Night of the Rabbit is an adventure game that features hand-drawn art that will draw you into a “… magical story full of twists and turns where nothing is as it seems.” It will be available digitally on May 29th for Mac and PC.
