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, April 28, 2017:

Weird this is still being played a lot. Didn't expect anyone to play it outside of the little jam I made it for. Thanks.

For anyone interested, I'm making Nighttime Visitor anew.

Nighttime Visitor was made in a few weeks. I like the idea, it seems others do too, but it's far from being something really good. So I'm taking the premise and spending a lot of time to make something new with it. I wouldn't exactly call the new game a "remake", I think it would fall into "reimagining" territory. You could consider this game a proof-of-concept for the new game, or something. Anyway, follow development of it at my blog here:

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.

Cool game mechanic

how do i play

When working in an office late at night the LAST thing you want is a Nighttime Visitor, especially one that's trying to kill you!

(+1)

Awesome game took me almost an hr XD

Late to the party as per usual, but oh well the game is fantastic. Having the killer able to locate you by calling your phone is an interesting mechanic, however, you're able to turn the tables on him by calling his phone to avoid contact. I'll admit it was a bit frustrating, but thanks to my stubbornness I finally made it to the exit!

This was surprisingly spooky! You really get the inherent creepiness of a deserted office building down to a nail! The monster was hilariously weird and I'm still racking my brain trying to figure out what was going on in nightmare land lol. Can't wait to see your reimagined version!

I played it on my channel, if you're interested!


I really enjoyed this game. I was really impressed with it's design and its ability to keep me on my toes. I started out disliking the game and thinking it was junk ,but this was made from my ignorance. The more I played this game and the more I learned about it the more I found it not exactly been the most original concept ,but it was very well executed. This game is less scary and more a test to see if you can beat Alex. I found this game interesting and you should be proud of it.

This game is really well made!

I have beat the game and the strategy is to keep your phone out most of the time because you make loud footsteps while having the phone out its quieter.

Anyways i really enjoyed the game!

p.s You should make Nighttime Visitor 2 When your Alex And you have to find Whoever is the person whos trying to find the exit.

Really enjoyed how weird this game was, I'd love to see more to come from it!



why i can't download it

he tell me sothing wrong

pls answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!

what can i do to accpet download?

When I try to open the game, although the menu works fine and I am able to enter into gameplay, there is only audio but not video aside from the lights and onscreen prompts. I followed the download instructions correctly (so I believe) and don't understand why this is happening. Could anyone help in any way?

Thanks

With just a few words...I HATE ALEX! Cool concept and sometimes also i was getting the hibby jibbies without a reason..lol!Anyway, thanks a lot for that opportunity!Can't wait to see more from you dev :) Here is also my let's play:

why dosent let me play every time i play it freezes on me and i really really want to play so can you plz tell me how to play or why its doing that plz thanks

What happens exactly? Does it freeze before you even get to the menu, or before you get in game, or during gameplay?

Something general to try: Right click NighttimeVistor.exe and create a shortcut. Right click the new shortcut and go to its properties. In the Target line, add a space to the end, and then type this:

-force-d3d9

Click OK and then open the shortcut to run the game and see if it works.

Really fun game with a very unique mechanic! Loved that enemy design in this game too! Very Nostalgic haha!

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.



(+1)

Nice jumpscare, bruh.


(+1)

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!

(+1)

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

lmfao, 2:57, im deadddd

(Edited 1 time)

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

Sorry, there isn't right now.

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

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!


Made a video :D I liked the game
