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:

Hi. I'm glad you're enjoying it, but unfortunately there isn't a way to remap the keys. It's a limitation of the RPG Maker engine. However, I'm aware that it will work with gamepads, so if you have one, try using that and it might make the controls a little more comfortable.

Decided to let's play this game, since I never played horror RPG games before. Here you go, if you are interested :

I believe that I will finish this game, and once I do it, will comment again with my rating and a review :)

So far, really great experience! I never played something like that before, but it really feels awesome. Don't know what else to say, except that I can't wait to record part 2 ^-^

I'm glad you enjoyed it. The second game is quite a different experience in terms of tone, but I think you'll still enjoy it. I'll check out your Let's Play!

This game is amazing. I played it at night, and I must admit it worked pretty well ;). I'm looking forward to play the second one.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. The second game is rather different in style, but I think you'll still enjoy it. The third game is more in line with the tone of One Night, though.
