International press reviews for Dark Nights with Poe and Munro
"Leah Cunard and Klemens Koehring deliver this performance in an entertaining and believable way that easily draws in and keeps the player’s attention. Not without intrigue and perhaps dark secrets of their own, Poe and Munro are an endearing duo and a wonderful pair of protagonists brought to life with some great acting. They perfectly complement each other through the adventures the game has to offer."

"Koehring plays Poe as an enthusiastic, charismatic artist, while Cunard’s Munro is a sweeter optimist [...] and their enthusiasm for the project really strengthens their performances. The chemistry between them is a delight to see on-screen..."
NewGame+ (gaming reviews website)
"... I like Poe’s acting. He really gives it some flair. Almost reminds me of Boris Karloff. He also seems like he’s seen a thing or two in his life."
GIN - Game Industry News (daily gaming news magazine)
"You get six very replayable chapters featuring John ‘Poe’ Pope (Klemens Koehring) and Ellis Munro (Leah Cunard), both superbly possessing their roles, coming off a bit like this decade’s Mulder and Scully..."
DAF - Destroy All Fanboys (gaming reviews website)
"The biggest highlight of Dark Nights with Poe and Munro is without a doubt, the actors. Klemens Koehring and Leah Cunard as the titular Poe and Munro absolutely make this game. They have some of the best on-screen chemistry I’ve ever seen, especially in a video game."
GameLuster (gaming news and reviews website)
"Poe and Munro bounce off each other like magnetised super balls. Their back and forths, a product of some excellent writing and top quality performances from Leah Cunard and Klemens Koehring, are a highlight of the game..."

"Klemens Koehring and Leah Cunard (Poe and Munro) return as the perfect companions, the banter they have with one another and the way they interact creates a believable ‘relationship’ and two very likeable characters."
GamePitt (gaming reviews website)
"Then there’s Klemens Koehring and Leah Cunard as Poe and Munro respectively who really knock it out of the park from start to finish."
GameSpew (gaming news and reviews website)
"It arguably pulls off the whole 'interactive TV' angle better than anything on Netflix, inching things far closer to a full merger between gaming and TV."
"...the main characters (played deliciously by Klemens Koehring and Leah Cunard)..."
TechRaptor (gaming news and reviews website)
"... credit should also go to Klemens Koehring and Leah Cunard for the marvelous job they do with their characters. Every scene with the two of them is a delight to watch as they really pull out all stops when it comes to their characters."
GAMERamble (gaming reviews website)
"The chemistry between Klemens Koehring and Leah Cunard, who play Poe and Munro, is electric and really carries the game."
Handsome Phantom (gaming website)
"A lot of the game’s weight rests on the shoulders of leads Klemens Koehring and Leah Cunard (Poe and Munro, respectively), but they carry it well. There’s a natural chemistry between the duo, some delicious melodrama, and a lot of sassy-but-flirty back-and-forths. They’re eminently believable as a pair of colleagues and secret lovers..."
