Note: Fair warning, this game is going on five years old, and I wrote it when I was 15 or 16 years old. As such, the story does get a bit cheesy towards the end and there might be inconsistencies/unlikely character quirks etc.

One Night is a survival horror game made in RPG Maker VX, released in late 2009. It holds the dubious honour of being the very first survival horror game made for the engine.

A frightening Resident Evil-esque experience, One Night challenges you to escape from "The Complex", a crumbling, abandoned research facility while being hunted mercilessly by the remnants of a long forgotten experiment. Relentless monsters and difficult puzzles await around every corner - can you survive the horror?

Hot on the heels of the Legionwood Mac port that was released last week, One Night has now been ported to Mac OS thanks to the efforts of the Jammed Gears Productions team, finally making it possible to enjoy some good old fashioned survival horror on a MacBook.

I don't know anything about Macs or how to make RPG Maker games run on them, but one thing I know is that a lot of Mac users have emailed me over the years asking if a Mac port of One Night was available. It's nice to know that these people are now able to play the game and discover what they've been missing. At this point, the game seems to run just fine on Macs with no hiccups or errors and beta testers have reported being able to complete the game successfully.

The Mac version of the game is available to download here. You can also check it out in this Youtube video:

Sorry, a limitation of the RPG Maker engine is that it's locked in the 544x416 resolution. Playing in full screen mode SHOULD stretch the game to fill your monitor, though.

Also, there's no way to skip the cutscenes, sorry :)

Just downloaded it yesterday and I gotta say this is the best horror indie game I've ever played in a while. I'm a relatively big fan of the Resident Evil games and One Night replicates the feeling of dread I get from that game exactly. DarkGaia Studios, you deserve every piece of recognition for this indie game.

I am making a playthrough of the whole game, and you can find the first part here:

Thanks for the praise. I'm a long time fan of the early RE games, and I really wanted to do a tribute to them and try to capture the feel of them (especially since the later ones are... not quite as good). I'll check out your LP!
