I was in a crisis of faith. Why keep going if nobody reads? Then No Evidence Scary Horror Quest Survival Story brought me back. This is why I exist! To warn people, stay away from Midnight Works! Please, DON’T BUY THESE GAMES! To be fair, this game has more effort put into than most, but that doesn’t make it good, just less hilariously awful. You are a cop named Frank, who is searching a cargo depot for clues to serial killer Edmund Kemper, a real life serial killer from the 70s. You’re wandering around finding cassette tapes of an interview with Edmund Kemper. There’s even one that mentions his name. I don’t think that was the point of these tapes though, I think this was just Midnight Works being lazy.

No Evidence Nothing!
Most of the game looks like this. Have fun!

In No Evidence, you will also need to find fuses to open a gate. There are also lockpicks needed to open safes. You do this via very a simple mini-game. Occasionally, a box will fall with a spooky sound. The primary issue is, everything looks the same. Same crates, same buildings. There’s no helpful markers to tell you where you are in the depot. Even worse, I’d pass a place, only to come back and find something there that wasn’t there the first time. Everything of interest is marked with a bright marker. How did I miss it the first time?

No Evidence Puzzles!
I only have 2/4 of the fuses. I’m screwed!

No Evidence is not Midnight Work’s best game, that is Midnight Runner, followed by Deep Space. Still, they at least tried with No Evidence, which is more than I can say for the rest of their stuff. However, that doesn’t mean this is a game worth playing, there are far better detective games on the Switch. I haven’t played one yet, but that’s because there is one of me and 13000+ switch games. I know they are there though. Regardless, I’m back! Because if I don’t suffer to warn you to stay away from Midnight Works’s games, who will?

Overall: Tapes of Edmund Kemper are probably the most interesting part of No Evidence, a boring slog of a game.

Verdict: Not Recommended.
