In Strange Nights, you're Mark Jefferson, who is a photography teacher at Blackwell Academy. You acquire unnatural powers that allow him to change his fate along with the fates of others. The visual novel lives up to its name because the nights do get kind of strange. You never thought your mundane life as a teacher would cause you to get into the situations you find yourself in. They didn't teach you this in college, and it won't be long before you find yourself wondering if you're going insane or if things are as strange as you think they are.
