Another great job here! I preferred this to Highway, mainly because the point and click mechanics were simple and contained enough to propel the story without drawing attention away from it. The narrative also feels more resolved like a fully fleshed out episode. Music is spot on as usual. Always looking forward to more, keep up the wonderful work!
I enjoyed this game a lot more than the first one! The story was way better and more engaging than the first game's story. Also, the interface is way more polished in this one and the graphics are a lot better. If you haven't played this game, I highly recommend you download the game now and play it. It'll be worth your time. I honestly am looking forward to the next release by Octavi Navarro!

keep up the amazing work! I played the first on, instantly liked it so I had to check out the second one. really digging the weird trippy stories, you guys really captured that “twilight zone” feeling. Will there be another episode? Also I made a playthrough of the video If anyone wants to check it out, thanks and keep up the good work
This episode definitely gave me more Twilight Zone vibes. One being, there is an episode where a guy who, "just got out of a mental hospital." Is on a plane with his wife, and starts seeing someone out on the plane wing, who is a gorilla thing I believe? Anyways, loved this game a lot!
Pretty cool storyline. I did like the game, but I wish there was a more jumpscares in this game. At the same time I'm kinda glad there wasn't as many jumpscares xD. Thanks for making this game. You did well!
I really enjoy the Twilight Zone feeling to these games, but unfortunately, unlike your first game that had that silent, dark and eerie atmosphere, I think the fact that the second game used dialogue to explain it's story took a lot of the charm out of it, at least for me.
The other problem I had was that the main character in this game was not as playable as the main character in the first game.
The second episode is even better than the first one, I loved it! 💖
En France aussi on aime ce jeu
Keep 'em coming! I didn't get stuck this time, either!
I personally love these small games, please make more of them
All i have waited for over years. Thank you for this short masterpiece.
UHM YES! you are amazing at what you do. i definitely enjoyed playing this.
watch my gameplay here:
Very disappointing ! Too many cinematics and dialogue, the player play not enough, there are very few puzzles compared to the first game. While the first was in the horror theme, here we have science fiction, another point very disappointing, and an end that does not really make sense of the story ...
I was very disappointed by this episode and expect more from the third.
You can totally notice the great effort that came with the second episode. I loved the way you handle the story telling, being completely different than the first one. The music was on point, the sounds were great. The artstyle is loyal to it's essence, same as the mechanics. I am keen on keeping track of everything that happens with the game. I loved that this is separated from episode 1, so I'm curious to where this is going. Amazing work, congratulations Mr. Navarro and his team!
This game was a total step-up from the last one, and that's saying something, because I really enjoyed The Highway! The GUI was stepped up, graphics were even more beautiful, the game took twice as long to complete, and there was actually dialogue this time! All I can say is well done! Looking forward to the next installment of the franchise, if there is one in the works.
Also, somebody should tell Linda that Richard has a wife...awkward...
Here's my gameplay video if you're interested:
Really enjoying this series :)
Gave it a go...
I was so excited to play this game when I saw it, love these midnight scenes, and this one was a step above the previous one in my opinion! Story was super good, music was chilling, and that ending, wow! Made a video, hope you enjoy!
I nearly jumped off my chair and smacked my head off the ceiling when I saw that another episode of Midnight Scenes had appeared in my feed! Needless to say it was swiftly added to my bookmarks.
Carrying right on with the 60's sci-fi / horror aesthetics, this is another cracking installment in the series, focusing on a rather troubling artifact found in Antarctica (if I've learned anything from old sci-fi horror movies it's that you NEVER trust anything weird you find at the poles!).
The puzzle element feels a bit toned down in this episode, and there doesn't seem to be as much brain-taxing time as there was in episode one, but this doesn't take anything away from the amazing story, the awesome old-school design and the overall tense feel to the whole thing.
Another awesome job, keep on keeping on! =)
Great game! I rather liked how short these Midnight Scenes are. The ending is a little confusing, however. Not quite sure what was supposed to have happened to the character at the very end.
Just as good if not better than episode 1 i can't wait to see what episode 3 may bring keep up the great work!
The Goodbye Note is another quality piece of work by Octavi and a fine addition to the Midnight Scenes series. While the ending has me a little confused, the game as a whole is fantastically crafted. From the dramatic and suspenseful music, to the subtle sounds of people talking in an area, the audio worked really well with everything that was going on. The art and animation is everything I've come to expect from the dev as well, with a lot of smooth character movements and era appropriate designs. The slight bulge of everything looking like it was on an old TV screen was a nice touch as well, and I love that the plane had strings on it.Great job on this, dev. Keep up the good work.
I'm still loving everything about this series. The little attention to detail really sells it, but the story and gameplay are also great. Can't wait to see Episode 3!
Episode 1 was great, episode 2 is even better. We enjoyed it very much.
Here is a short video we made while playing:
Episode 2 was awesome! Loved episode 1 and waiting for hopefully another episode! The ending reminded me of something from Saints Row 4! Overall really eerie and interesting!
But look who's back!
It's been quite a while since I saw a game from you and here you are with a sequel to Midnight Scenes.
Let me tell you something dude. It was spectacular!
Let's talk about the pros and cons of it though:
Really interesting story with a very nice plot twist near the end.
Beautiful pixelated art style. Not as good as The Librarian but it has nonetheless such an attention to detail that is dvine.
Perfect length and charm to it. Just like the first chapter, this one is short but really sweet. It truly feels like a show from the 60's or 70's. And while the first game had some creepy atmosphere and one was left questioning what happened, this one had 2 moments that really made me jump a bit. Perfectly timed scare and built of atmosphere.
Not much to judge here but something I think would be interesting is to add more diversity to the gameplay. I can see that you have added some puzzles to diversify a bit but I think that adding a bit more of them or maybe even a combat system in one of the chapters would help to keep things fresh.
Great chapter and I think I will give you 5 dollars my man. You totally deserve them.
Thank you so much for your feedback and for your support!! <3
I'm really glad that you liked it overall and that the light jumpscares were effective :D.
In a time were most horror games have plenty of scares, I knew they would ruin the game if they felt cheap.
When I release episode 3 early next year, I hope you enjoy it at least as much as this one! :)
Another exciting episode, looking forward to the third one.
love the ep. very fun and spooky cant wait for more!!
Hey everyone here is part 2 of my gameplay. Please support my channel. Thank you.
Absolutely loved the game, I feel like this was a huge improvement over the first! I can't wait to see what you do in the near future!
Had so much fun recording both ep 1 & 2! Cannot wait until the next one comes out as well!
I adore your games thank you so much for making them
Octavi! I'm a big fan! Last year I played The Highway and loved the spookiness, style, and story of it. When I saw that episode 2 came out, I was ecstatic to throw down another LP for one of your products! I really enjoyed The Goodbye Note and like how the story is something completely different from Claire's. I was curious if the new game was going to be related with older one in any way. Nope! New characters, new plot, and new daunting spookiness! I'm thrilled and can't wait for more.
Would love to play this game, but unfortunately I ran into two game-breaking glitches and gave up. First one was near the beginning after the intro, where it wouldn't let me past the dialogue on screen no matter what I clicked or pressed. Once I restarted and got past it, a second glitch populated where, after taking my seat on the plane, the hostess got stuck partway through her walk by me and ended up moonwalking in place, preventing me from continuing. Hopefully these bugs get squashed and I can see what the hype's all about, since I loved the first game :D
Huh, I knew about the first bug and I'm trying to solve it. The second one is quite weird and I'll have a look at it. Sorry for this bad experience but please, try again! I'm sure you'll have better luck next time :)
Still really love the Twilight Zone feeling from this series of games. Both games have been really good, cool little stories, and I look forward to seeing the next one. Really great work
This is amazing! It scared me so much with its jumpscare in the clean room scene and other scenes as well and I was nervous during the entire gameplay. I can’t wait to see the next episode when it arrives. 20 / 10!
This episode was awesome like the first one!
