A Night That Wouldn't End - Enhanced Edition
« on: 05 Apr 2017, 09:11 »
I thought I published this already on these forums, but turns out I didn't!



Far in the North, where nighttime can last for months, a researcher is left alone with his boredom and an important research close to completion. Then, a power shortage gets in the middle.

The game is available for PC, Mac and Linux!

Download for free (or pay-what-you-want) on itch.io

OR

Download on GameJolt
Download on IndieExpo
Download on IndieGameStand


Game Features
  • Short, yet authentic point and click fun!
  • Chunky pixel-art, just because!
  • Debatable science!
  • Pseudo-random soundtrack!
  • Some John Conway's Game of Life inspired graphics!

Additional Info

I originally developed this game for December 2014 MAGS, then ported it a year later to Unity and re-released it with my brother helping me on optimizing the original graphics and creating some additional art.

The original is still available, of course, so you can compare versions if you want :)

Trivia

When Thimbleweed Park was looking for books to fill its huge library shelves, I wrote a short novelization of the game. Seeing it in the game made my little nerdy heart beat with joy :-D

Haha cool, be still your nerdy little heart, when is the full-length novella going to be released?   ;)

Is this an enhanced enhanced edition?  (As in, enhanced from the edition you already had on Itch?)  Or just enhanced from the AGS MAGS version?

Am I asking too many questions????  :-D

It is the same one that I released on itch.io over a year ago! I simply forgot to publish it here for some reason  :-[
When I found out my book in Thimbleweed Park I thought "I should update the thread on AGS forums!", except... There was no thread  (laugh)

Well done on the original game. I played it and have fond memories!

Also congratulations on your game being immortalized in Thimbleweed Park!

Thank you Mandle! Also for being a "old school" fan of the game :)

TWP library is filled with books. I wonder if any other AGSers are there :D We should probably open a specific thread about that (laugh)
