Really fun game with a very unique mechanic! Loved that enemy design in this game too! Very Nostalgic haha!
A downloadable game for Windows
You're being pursued by Alex, so escape your strange office.
Alex will call you and try to locate you by the sound of your ringing phone. In this world there is no way to silence or turn one's phone off.
And because of that, you can call Alex as well, to try and locate him in a similar manner.
Also, try knocking on some doors. Maybe you'll hear the answers to your questions from the other side.
Tab - Get phone out / Put phone away
Q - Call / Answer phone
E - Hang up / Ignore call
Left Click - Interact / Knock on door
Esc - Pause menu from which you can view the controls, exit the game or change the options
Update, June 10:
After a long time, I've fixed a few more miscellaneous problems. Alex's AI has also been improved and altered a bit, and I've finally optimized the game a lot. It should run way smoother for those who experienced lag, and at the same time also look slightly better.
Update, Nov 4:
I fixed a few little miscellaneous problems, and one big one concerning Alex's AI. Unluckily, I had never noticed this myself until I saw other people play and experience it. Logically, the code worked correctly most of the time, however I didn't take into account the order it was executed, and under particular circumstances Alex wouldn't work correctly. But now he should be a bit more competent and consistent after I've made the fix. For that, the game will probably be harder too.
Performance has also been improved a bit, hopefully.
One issue is lag. The reason is that all the lights are dynamic. I'm using occlusion culling, but because of how my environment is constructed, in areas of the map there are ways you can look which will cause a ton of lights to be rendered at once. Trying to find a way to fix it but I'm not sure there is one that doesn't involve remaking the office differently.
Another issue is that during repeated playing (dying and restarting, perhaps even just exiting to the menu and beginning again), some audio disappears. Not sure why that is but just know that it may happen.
Download, unzip, and then run NighttimeVisitor.exe

Just did a playthrough of this! Wasn't what I expected (clearly from the thumbnail) but I actually thoroughly enjoyed this game! I took it for what it is, and even though I didn't complete it (I dont think) I had an enjoyable time. Check out my gameplay and leave some feedback if youd like. God job with this one though, you made me jump and laugh at the same time.
Nice jumpscare, bruh.
Great concept and tension. My only complaint is with the enemy's character model, after seeing it the first time a lot of the tension was lost as the game just felt silly. Otherwise, fantastic game. 8/10
I don't play on a macbook. I play on a Mac osx El captian. That PC is GIANT!
It actually made me scream a few times! A great time killer. Also a funny game to have your friends play haha. Here's my play of it, if anybody's interested and wants to see what it's like
Is there anyway to put the game in a lower resolution, it won't let me in the options, makes it a little hard to record the game if its in full screen
can this game be downloaded for macs or is it just Windows?
Right now, it's just Windows, but maybe I'll try to build for Mac soon.
thank you, i will wait patiently for the release of the mac version of this game.
How do you play games on a crappy ass Macbook,No, they don't deserve it. Let Windows have this one.
what about apple😭😭
on a crappy ass Macbook? Boy you better go out to best buy and get you a Windows 10, intel i7
i know this nighttime vistor that alex will kill you!!
This game was actually so fun I couldn't beat the game though. It was interesting hard and awesome. Here's a link to a video I did.
I play a ton of indie games so come check the channel out or send me some games to play :D
Gave this game a go and it was fun, really enjoyed it!
I loved this game, had the perfect amount of tension, made you use your senses, and you had to make no mistakes to complete the game. Keep up the amazing work!
Brilliant little game. many thanks :)
Just recently played and recorded this game. Sadly, I wasn't able to retrieve the ending of the game but I think I got the deserved experience the game offered for me. Here is my playthrough of the game:
The game is OVERALL a good and UNIQUE horror game in MY opinion :D
I want to play this game on my chrome-book but it's only for windows, please make it available for chrome-books as I WANT/NEED Alex to freak me out. lol ;D
Hey uhm can you update this game? Its got so much potential I need you to do something xD
Thanks. I'm gonna do more than update it.
There isn't much at my blog yet, but soon I think some posts regarding the incident of a particular nocturnal visitation will trickle in: raincoil.tumblr.com
Follow if you want to see that stuff, and thanks for playing.
So I love the entire Doodlebob evil cousin thing going on. I figured out you can call him back and locate him so I thought that was the way out, I was WRONG. Honestly I couldn't finish it, the farther I got in the more anxious I got that he was coming for me and I just couldnt get over the anxiety. Good job sir
Interesting game. Didn't figure out the mechanic of the phone until halfway through, which is completely my fault. Gotta say, hearing a phone ringing in the hands of a monster somewhere close by is pretty unnerving, even more so when put alongside the seemingly random noises behind those doors.
If there was anything I had to gripe on, it's Alex's design. Seems kind of cartoony when the game is otherwise serious, but it goes alongside the "Game Over" area. Cool mechanics, but wasn't able to beat it because Alex is a super sleuth or something.
Anyway, great job! And thank you for an amazing game!
how bo get to play the game
This game was very unique and a lot of fun :D
I think an amazing addition to this game would be multiplayer. 1 v 1 someone playing as alex and the other person trying to escape and the level would be randomly generated so it wouldn't be easy to escape. This is not a request its just an idea but if executed properly it would be awesome.
Had a ton of fun with this game! Definitely need to revisit it now that I've read up on the game more :P Running into Alex scared the shit out of me, make sure to check it out right here-
This is pretty cool. I like what you did with the phone but I think I didn't quite figure out how to use it. All I could figure out was when I'd call him I'd know if he's really close but then it would be too late.
I was not successful but I did make a little video: https://youtu.be/kpx0odLCh4M
This does not work as a scary game. All the scares are cliché as hell. Other than that it's interesting at some places.
This was not your typical scary game. The killer looks like a paper cutout lol but for some reason I really enjoyed it! You walk through a labyrinth of hallways all while trying to keep your phone silent. It is just a fun concept. The only problem I had with it was I didn't see the point of calling Alex back. I think it was supposed to help me know if he was close but I couldn't really tell. Anyway, all-in-all I really enjoyed this game so thanks for letting me try it out!
If you want to watch some of my gameplay, here it is:
*Rawr* I tried out the game, had fun! Although I do wish, deep down that the 'enemy' trying to kill us was.....scarier? More threatening-looking? xD I wanted to ask the dev, if there was a goal, a proper ending, a room we're meant to find and go to, and what happens then? Hope I can get an answer, may try this again if so.
There is indeed a goal. You can escape through the stairs door, once you find it. Though the ending is nothing much, I didn't have enough time to implement something proper there. You're not missing much. Thanks for playing!
OMG The guy on the phone was awesome the game was give GREAT!!
I recently played this game on my channel and thought this game was AWESOME!!!
Hey I recorded a let's play of this hope that's cool, It's a fun little horror experience.
This game was AWESOME! I love how you used the sound and atmosphere to make this game so intense and freaky - and highlighting the fact that the mind will make something WAY worse than any monster you put into a game!
I had to make a video on this one! Keep up the great work!
Hey I played your game, recorded it for YouTube as well, it is really awesome and it gives that scary atmosphere, I will definitely try to beat it in the future. Although I don't like the design of the killer, he gave me few jumpscares, anyway here's the video if any of you guys wan't to watch it or support my channel. Awesome game 4/5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPzBMR6FdyM
Edited so many times cause I can't figure out how to make my video appear as thumbnail on this site. hahah
I can't download it guys
