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.

oh man i  cant wait to play such a masterpiece i will poop my trousers in pure terroer great googly moogly am i exited !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not a fan really of maze games, and I'm actually really happy you said you wanted to rework this into something bigger. The phone mechanic is interesting and I could see evovling and building upon it, and hopefully having a better enemy in it.

It´s a great game!!! 


Here's my play of the game, the gameplay is sorta laggy though.

This was a great game and I had a lotta fun with it!

I don't know why Alex wants me dead, and I don't care.  I just want to go home!

This game was really fun and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Check it out!

This game was interesting, i did not beat it but for some reason found it annoyingly addictive... trust me I will beat it one day lol.  SCREW YOU ALEX!

Liked it!

The jumpscares are surprisingly effective in such a goofy manner.

Well played.

I couldn't finish this game to save my life, but I had a lot of fun playing it and was VERY SCARED the whole time. 10/10.

Hey! I recently played this game and thought it was fantastic! I made a post about it on my blog if you'd like to check it out :)

Thanks, and good luck on the development!

OMG i'm so SCARED

Wow, this was spooky! I made a gameplay video on it and me being a big baby, and I would appreciate it if you would check it out if you get a chance!

cool

Everyone else is doing playthroughs so I figured I would too!

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

(+1)

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 game is very interesting but im not sure how far i have gotten


(Edited 1 time)

Knock knock...

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.
