It is dark now, and something else about the mystery genre | Mouryou no Hako 02

No doubt all of you have been out at night at some point in your lives, in proper darkness, I mean. Proper darkness is rare in urban areas because of the ubiquity of electronic lighting, but in less metropolitan areas, or when the moon is new, you can catch some heavy dark. Its rather difficult to describe, and the best I can do is point you at some good representations and bad representations of it in visual media. Dark Souls does it well, Angel’s Egg does it well, M3: Sono Kuroki Hagane does it badly.
