About The Game

Three Cards to Midnight is a noir-tinged mystery that involves a character trying to retrieve memories that have been lost.

The last thing Jess Silloway can recall is meeting her boyfriend, Daniel, for dinner on the eve of her thirtieth birthday. The next morning, she'll fly to the Florida Keys to celebrate her birthday with her parents aboard her father's yacht. Everything in Jess's life is good...on track.

Except...something feels different. Maybe it's just her impending birthday – some kind of mini-midlife crisis. Or maybe it's something else...

Jess suddenly finds herself in a room with a man she's never seen before, who tells her that something has happened...something that has caused her to block out the events of the past days or weeks since her last memory. The man is there, he says, to help Jess remember.

The man lays out a series of Tarot cards, each of which seems to trigger memories of a person or place in Jess's subconscious – some from childhood...others from the recent past...and some that are totally unfamiliar.

The man asks Jess to choose one card and focus on it -- and so begins her chilling journey into the past...

Three Cards to Midnight Review

By Trang Ngo

If you're the kind of person who likes to skip cutscenes in games and doesn't care about plot, then you're sorely missing out. The story - which follows a woman named Jess as she tries to unlock repressed memories with the help of a mysterious Tarot card reader - is one of Three Cards to Midnight's greatest strengths. Its themes are mature, at times creepy, and with a definite slant towards the occult. But there are enough interesting twists and turns to keep you intrigued to the end. The story slowly unfolds as a series of flashbacks, as Jess uses Tarot cards to help her retrace the events of the last few days and regain her memories. With each card she turns over, Jess recalls a particular place, along with key words that are associated with that location, such as note, fire and power.

Although I recognize that the story subject matter won't be for everyone, personally I found myself sucked in by it. It's well-written, and the cutscenes, all fully voice-acted, are well-staged and compelling.
