The dreadful feeling you get when it's around you. The overwhelming fear of the unknown eating your insides.
Do you know how it feels?
Curiosity may not be the best thing after all.

The Myth.

"The Midnight Game" is an old pagan ritual used mainly as punishment for those who have broken the laws of a pagan religion.
While it is mainly used as a tactic not to disobey the gods, It's also a "game" for those few thrill seekers searching for a rush or those delving into obscure occult rituals.

The Ritual.

The whole game starts after executing specific steps in an attemp to summon The Midnight man.
The Midnight Game throws you into a state of absolute control. By interacting with everything you see, you must excecute the Ritual that is based on the Rules of the Game.

Wonder Play, Survive.

Do you like challenges? Do you want to find out what lurks in the shadows?
The Midnight Game shows you the answer. The answer of what hides in the Darkness.

Although it might not be pleasant to look at.

Had a blast with your game and a couple others, and in the spirit of Halloween I wrote up a little list of recent spooky live playthroughs I did, over on my facebook.


Happy Halloween!

Hello There! Make sure you extract from the compressed file both the executable and the 'The Midnight Game - Windows_Data' folder :)
Otherwise if you try to play the game without that folder you will get that error you have

It seems like the game is using the CPU's GFX card. We have a document inside the .rar that explains how to change that.

Are you using any extraction program? Like Winrar or Winzip? That's what you need to open and extract ALL the files to your folder of preference.

I seem to be having an issue with the matches. If I pull up the Inventory, the first match I use will always fail as soon as it touches the matchbox. The next match I always get to light no problem. I thought it was an issue with my technique, but after an hour of practicing, I'm starting to worry if I've hit a bug =[

Correction: It's actually every other match, and it does seem to be a bug. I'm running the game on Windows 7, followed the Nvidia adjustment instructions, and tried it on every graphics quality setting. I tend to strike my match right to left, although it does the same thing left to right. I actually managed to play about 5 minutes through the game pretty effectively just by quickly killing my first match and darting for the second in the nick of time but I run out of matches quickly this way.

Sorry to hear that, make sure you click,HOLD and drag/slide when you're striking. Not too slow or too fast.
No one else mentioned this bug so it's really weird, maybe play around with rhe resolutions or quality settings. Else feel free to PM us so we can assist you.
Thanks for your patience.

I've been waiting to play this game for a long time, and I was not disappointed. It is easily one of the most polished looking Indie games I've played for a while! The atmosphere is really creepy and you'll find that you're always on edge while while trying to survive the night. I'm definitely going to have to do another playthrough of this game to reach the end. The only drawback was that there was a periodic lag that I experienced, but the game is brand new and there could be several other factors…
