I agree. Anyway, you can simple aim pressing "space bar" (aim) + "a" (turn left) or "d" (turn right).

It's simple and sure need other work. ;)

Hello, thank you for the question. What is your build?
Sometime monster will attack you with high speed (i'm working for fix it). If you want kill it, you must aim and shoot it. Send me a PM, if you still have the problem, and i'll try to help you as i can. Thanks again.

Thanks for reply,
I didn't know how to shoot some time. SPACE+RMB is really odd combination for simple shooting. ;-)

By the way, this game uses almost 100% of my Radeon 7970 GPU, which is really crazy. Is this normal?

Yep, it's inspired by horror games from 90s (if you've played silent hill or resident evil on PSOne, with joypad there was a similar combination).

So, now the monster is still really fast, or you can kill it? What is your alpha build (v.1.12)?

This is strange (about 100% of your Radeon 7970). Project Night runs very well on many pc config (including old pc config). Can you tell me (in PM) what is your config? The game works at 60fps? or 30fps?

Played through this for a couple hours the other day. Some spoilers for the current build, but some thoughts:

-The dynamic camera angles, when used, really do add to the effect and give of the vibe of the horror games of yesteryear. I think they are of good use too to attract the eye to certain things or increase tension or atmosphere. Well done from my experience.
-Music and general sound direction was also good. A few audio cues even unnerved me.
-I generally really liked the house in the middle of the forest section.
-Having light help guide the player, and little places to explore for items, is a cool feeling that promotes risk and reward.
-Speaking of exploring, I liked being able to enter and explore random houses, even if they don't have anything in them.
-Liked how the second and first areas felt very different from each other.

-I hear you worked on the first level to make it less directionless, and it worked, but the second level (which I consider the foggy town) was something I got lost in. Wasn't sure if it's because Alpha and there is no place currently to go or if I just kept missing it, but I spent over an hor exploring around the town with no clue what to do. Though I did form the idea that maybe sound could attract players as the music box did attract me to investigate, for example, though found nothing there.
-While I understand Alpha, after the initial WTF factor of the flying baby(?) monsters wore off, they became a bit more goofy outside of scary. Think it has to do with them looking untextured, doing the T-Model pose in front of you and apparently causing harm. Their sounds are creepy though. Also one of them always looked like it was glitching when it approached me, like a bubble of wires.

Keeping in mind the roughness is due to it being alpha, this project is extremely promising and I have enjoyed my time with it. Bought the Special Edition as well to support, and excited to see future updates to the project.

Thank you AestheticGamer! I think that your post is really good and i'm agree with you.

About Disliked: The second level is still working progress, so, this is why you can't do a lot of things. I've inserted that level in the game because i want to show to gamers where i want pushing "Project Night".

Same for enemies, they are still in working progress.

Thanks again for support Project Night!

Too many half baked games touting to be version >1.0 that don't even start up can be found on IndieDB. It is really nice to find an very early alpha which is stable and runs very well.
Keep in mind the game is still very early in dev. Still the atmosphere is great; very tense. The controls are like a 90s survival horror, which I like but some people may not.
I really like this game and looking forward to seeing it grow.
