Wow, great atmosphere. I really like it!
The Night is Darkening
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
In a nearly forgotten place, far from the Angel War, a drunken sailor crashes his ship. You have the misfortune of being on it.
"this first-person adventure feels wonderfully Morrowind with its weird fauna, its dusty environment, its alien creatures and its electric atmosphere. Influences are expertly mixed in a science fiction ghost story set in a decidedly wuthering airborne world" - Tom Sykes, PC Gamer

"Made for the Gothic Novel Jam." That makes so much sense.
I honestly have no idea how this idea was borne, but it is endlessly fascinating and has so much more room to grow. We've got holy wars, angels, faceless people who are tapping into other worldly powers that are consuming them, a ghostly house, we're hundreds if not thousands of years into the future, and that's not even mentioning the gravity stones and floating land masses yet.
Are we above Earth and people build on floating platforms now, or are we in an interdimensional plane where normal physics don't really exist?
There may not be much you're expected to do as far as the game goes, but in terms of Lore, this is incredible!
I really liked it! Wish there was even more
Can we open the flying locked stone?
I loved the atmosphere of the game! I found myself immersed in it right away. I wish there was more to discover and explore. I would love to go from island to island learning more about the world and what it has to offer.
Nice game, I wondered if this were unfinished though? One area I was interested in but we flew straight past it lol. Keep up the good work
Love the style of your games. Felt bad for the angel spawn, maybe they could've been saved.
Have I discovered something?
Kinda wished the game didn't end. I love everything about it and would love to see more!
im having trouble staring the game iself. my laptop says it doesnt have any programs to open it with.. any helps appreciated thanks
The game succeeds at creating uneasy atmosphere and I really enjoyed it. No problems or bugs occured except for a typo in the last dialogue with the noble.
Something IS happening in the universe set up during the game, and we seem powerless about it. We just go on with the flow, I think this is what truly frightened me. I'm kinda sad of the choice I made concerning this specific character. Thank you for this experience.
Hey you make some pretty amazing stuff! I thoroughly enjoyed this and Dread Delusion! You're actually exactly the kind of person I'm looking for, do you have a business email?
Played your game, and I liked it quite a bit! I made a video, feel free to check it out!
that was strangely haunting...I'm not sure why. but I liked it
Very unique, I loved it so much I played multiple times :D
Good, but definitly not long enough.
The way the characters are presented it reminded me a lot of the game Baroque. And the atmosphere too. Really neat.
Guys, you have to make a whole game set in this universe! It was a fantastic experience, loved it!
I love the art style of the game, it's really pleasant for me. It's honestly my favorite style. Loved the gameplay and how it had a lot of things to do in a tiny space.
It's like Morrowind meets Dark Souls, with a dash of H.P. Lovecraft. A very tight and well crafted, immersive game world. I really liked the atmosphere and setting, the lore bits, and the light sprinkle of music. Plus the scary house of course. Elegant ending.
Love this stuff
Enjoyed it a lot!!
Short game with a great atmosphere and a story that leaves you wanting more. Would be great if you would expand the game, allow us to explore more islands and get more of the history of the Angel War.
Cool lil game.
My only problem was that it left me wanting more!
I love the weird and unique setting of the game.
Very short but really interesting and a bit creepy game :)
I loved this game! The only problem i have with it is that its not long enough! The atmosphere was perfect, i loved the concept. I would love to have more! A must play.
As many others have said the atmosphere of this game is amazing. Feels like there is a good story in the works but the length of the game limits how much is revealed to the player. Would love to play a full length game in this universe.
All I can say is this was really interesting and I want to know more about the game world.
An interesting game.
We made a short video while playing:
Really really excellent mood and setting. I love the whispering in the manor.
