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:

I'm not sure which puzzle you're referring to (there are two that deal with months - the locked chest and the locker puzzle), but check out the video walkthrough at my website ( and it should see you through :)

Hey, it's a very cool game, and real scary ^^
But why can't I save? Is this some bug? Can you "repair" that? Thx :)

You can save in special rooms called "Save Room". You can also use a Compact Disc to save at any moment during the game, but be careful, you won't have a lot of them.

No, it's not a bug. You need to be in a save room to save -- just like in the old Resident Evil games. You should encounter one within the first ten minutes of playing.
