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

LIKED:
-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.

DISLIKED:
-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!

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. ;)
