Overnight is a short, 5-10 minute story based game where you collect items for your three puppies while simultaneously confronting your gradual loss of memory. As you explore the woods, you think of memories from previous seasons and the nearing threat of winter. Spoiler: it's pretty sad. 

There is one side quest during the events of Overnight. While not necessary to complete the game, it will slightly alter the ending. 

This game has been a large labor of love, and I really tried to test my pixel art and music making abilities with it. The OST, strategy guide, and story explanation are all available for download on this same page. I highly suggest reading the story explanation after finishing the game, unless you want to make your own theories first :)

This game would not have been remotely possible without the help and/or use of Bitsy by Adam le Doux, the Bitsy Discord Server, Borksy Game Hacker by Ayolland, and a variety of Bitsy hacks including...

  • bitsymuse by David Mowatt
  • directional avatar by Sean S. LeBlanc
  • end from dialog by @mildmojo
  • exit from dialog by @mildmojo

As well as Beepbox by John Nesky (@shaktool) for making all four original music tracks.

While this wasn't exactly the most complex or dramatic, with not much more than a few goals and bits of a storyline to follow through by what I can see, I thought this was pretty nice to play. The art and music are incredibly simple yet incredibly honest and straightforward in what they represent.

So, put simply, I enjoyed it. I'd love to play more of this kind of stuff to relax with.

Thank you so much!! I’m glad you found it relaxing :)

I'm not sure if my computer just sucks but this game wouldn't load at all?? I would love to play it though since it seems awfully cute!

I’m not having any issues on my end currently (on mobile). I’ll check it out once I’m near my computer later. However, if you’re dying to play, mobile should work :) 

a very cute game, the ending made me sad. the art is inspiring to me for some reason, makes me wanna make a bitsy game too!

You totally should!! 

This was literally the cutest game ever it was so fun and all the graphics were so cute !!!

Thank you!!! I’m happy that you enjoyed :)

This was a very sweet story! ✨

Also I was weirdly very drawn to the way you did the art for the cobblestone path. I kept thinking like..."Wow, that's a really good path!!"

(+1)

Thanks!! The path tiles are actually some of the first I made for the whole game, out of probably around 200 lol

for some reason the music didn't play for me ): but that was a nice experience. and your art is incredible good. simple but beautiful.

Glad you enjoyed!!! The music sometimes doesn’t work when playing on phones, so that may be the reason. If you want to listen to the music without playing through again, the soundtrack is available for download desperately  :)

Strangely beautiful. I love it.

thank you!! glad you enjoye

This was hauntingly beautiful...thank you for making it. 

"hauntingly beautiful," i love that. thanks!!
