A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

"A Night Alone" is a brief 2D horror-platformer where you need to rescue your cat. can you brave the terrors of the night to get you and your pet home safely? and if you're a true master... can you unlock and beat nightmare mode?!

the game has a retro aesthetic, featuring  graphics with a 6-color palette and spooky chiptune music. i can recommend it to fans of horror games, platformer games, retro games, or people who just want a quick but thrilling experience.

Install instructions

A Night Alone is an executable .JAR file. In order to run it, you must have Java installed on your computer. From there, it should be as simple as double clicking on the program; if that doesn't work, please look up how to run a .JAR executable on your operating system.

A Night Alone supports XBox 360 controllers and keyboards. If you have an XBox 360 controller, plug it in, then launch the game. Otherwise, it will default to keyboard controls.
