The new update is now available for Windows, Mac and Linux. :D

I've fixed some graphics glitches and deleted flying monster (i want change and get a better monster A.I.).

About monsters:

If monster kills you easily try to run away (shoot is not always the right way), because when you're enough far from them they stop to follow you.
Be careful to the flying monster, it's near impossibile to run away from him.
Keep calm and shoot when he's perfectly in your sight. ;)

Project Night (alpha build) v0.1.1 is now available on Desura. :)

- First level is redesigned in a shorter version (less "directionless").
- Some audio bugs fixed.
- Added Particle Effect near some lights (specks of dust).

Please, after you have played the game, contact me and tell me what you love or hate about the game, thanks!

Some people reporting to me that the game is not easy. If you think that is too hard or frustrating kills monsters, please tell me, and i'll set the game more easy in next update. :D

Thanks for making a game reminiscent of the best survival horrors of the 90s! Some many indie horror games out now, but almost none recapture that spirit.

Really enjoying the alpha. Very glad that even at this early the game shows technical proficiency and runs seamlessly on my Macbook.

One suggest: some customization options for the controls would be nice. The option for "tank controls" especially. I know lots of people bag them, but they work very well with a moving camera in enclosed spaces.

Thanks again for the game! :)

Oh, thank you for your support! I'm happy that you like this alpha build.
Yeah, i want recapture the 90s spirit! :D
I'm also happy that the game runs seamlessly on your Macbook (i've lost a lot of time for testing the game on macbook and older pc)! :)
Yep. I was thinking about a customization for the controls. Probably, if i will release the full game (crossing the fingers), i'll add something like that.
Thank you, again, for enjoy 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.
