A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

"A Night Alone" is a brief 2D horror-adventure game 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 6-color palette graphics and 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.

UPDATE - patch 1.3 is out! use the control stick in the control menu to change palettes. you might even be able to find more palettes to use...
