About The Game

Nightshift was created by a former dancer.It aims to challenge stigma and empowerthis often misunderstood profession through promoting empathy and understanding.

4 Game Modes:
✦ Competitive
✦ 2v2
✦ Co-Op

Players use their Energy to navigate the club in search of worthwhile Customers. Each Customer has unique qualities, so choose them wisely! Engaging with a Customer involves rolling the dice, which combined with the Player’s abilities, Power Cards, and potentially a few Drinks, will determine the outcome.

Successfully getting a Customer to the Private Room, or even better, the lucrative VIP Room, initiates a theme-based “push-your-luck” mini game. The aim is to maximise earnings from the Customer without breaking the illusion... If you leave them wanting more, they'll become subscribers to your online fan-site where you can earn additional income later on.

Players can purchase Drinks from the Bar, Champagne is a valuable tool for persuading Customers to extend their time with you in the Private Room or VIP Room, whilst Shots can help you get them in there.

As the atmosphere shifts around midnight, the full moon will trigger an Event that can change the game, for better, or for worse...

Players must manage their time carefully - throughout the night they'll be rostered on Stage, which provides benefits such as acquiring extra Tips and Power Cards. These unique powers add another layer of strategy and interaction.

So, will you help your fellow dancers, or will you play dirty?
