And for those who want to get really technical…

According to VIS-Games (Pineview Drive, Obscuritas) and SilentFuture, TheNightfall is “an enthralling psycho horror spectacle of a very special kind!”

You become Victoria, a young woman who is moving to a new town with her family in order to start a new job. She arrives a day earlier than her husband and children, intending to spend her first night in their new home alone.

At first, Victoria feels uneasy and is unable to sleep. But as the night wears on, it becomes a nightmare.

Played in first-person, TheNightfall features psychological horror. As you explore your surroundings, the game’s atmosphere becomes increasingly oppressive. You’ll be set on-edge within breathtaking sound effects, realistic graphics, eerie light and shadow effects, and an OST by Düsseldorf, Germany-based indie band Northpolyptica. This is not a game for the weak-of-nerve.

Will you be able to survive until dawn?

TheNightfall will be released Jaunary 12, 2018 for Windows on Steam. A Mac version will immediately follow.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
