The Midnight Scenes series is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. As a huge fan of The Twilight Zone, I deeply appreciate the homage paid to the show by Octavi Navarro. While the episodes are a bit short, the atmosphere & pixel style were amazing & the scares were effective. For those wondering, each episode is about 30 mins long. I enjoyed it so much that I played Episode 1 & 2 on my Twitch channel: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/470995658 Thanks so much for the game & keep up the great work!

I kid you not, after completing both episodes it gives me a sense nostalgia since it reminds me of when I used to watch the Twilight Zone, late at night, with my dad (although I technically wan't allowed to since I was a smol bean lol). Keep up the good work and I'm excited for what's to come in Episode 3 :D
Hello, I played all three of your games and they are amazing. Loved the pixel art, the tense atmosphere, great sound and overall an amazing story. Thank you for making awesome games like this. Can't wait for episode 3 or is it going to be the same as Half-Life? lol jk :p Best wishes to you.
Epizod 3 ? Please :3
Very Fun. Really twilight zoneeyy. The ending shoulda been clearer though. Would appreciate keyboard input and some scrollspeed change option. Hope you do more, would be worth paying to play a couple of these in a row. NOt sure if I was supposed to go through the list of codes or if I missed something......was annoying to go through the list considering where u placed it, but whatever.
Thank you for playing! I'm glad you enjoyed it overall.
You don't need to go through the list. The solution is right there, in front of your eyes in the same room where you find the list :)
I really liked this game! It was amazing! It's have a good story, i really like the concept, the animation, the style! EVERYTHING. But it's short... Please make EPISODE:3!!! WE.NEED.IT!
Really fun short game! I really liked how everything sticks to the theme, even the ad to donate at the beginning! It makes the whole experience really immersive, I audibly gasped at a few scares! The puzzles weren't too obtuse like a lot of other point and click games, either. Nothing too challenging, but perfect for a short game. I really liked the level design, I felt like things were very easy to find (meaning no pixel hunting). Great game, really had that Twilight Zone vibe!
Thank you so much for your kind comments! I'm really proud of this little game so I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)
I've played all 2 episodes and I hope you make another one.
La historia, increíble, me ha gustado incluso más que la primera parte, pero creo que precisamente por eso es menos "juego" y más "historia interactiva" que el anterior y me habría gustado que hubieran más puzzles o acertijos que ayudaran a dar más sensación de aventura gráfica. Pero entiendo que a veces cuando se tiene una buena historia es difícil meter elementos jugables sin que la narrativa se resienta, de hecho me está pasando con el juego en el que estoy trabajando ahora :D
Pero en definitiva, que me ha encantado y espero impaciente la tercera parte!
I NEED PART 3!!!!
I played the first two episodes and am anxiously waiting on a third! I love that you literally captured the feel of a playable Twilight Zone! Do the stories connect in some way?
I played this (along with pt 1) on a stream a few days ago and I really enjoyed this game. I love the art style. I also thought the whole Twilight Zone-esque storytelling was great (and unique for a game). I look forward to playing more of your games in the future. :)
Finally got around to playing the second episode. I liked the first one, but this one was better. I felt like it spooked me at just the right times and gave me just enough of the story. Can't wait for episode 3.
This is my favorite game that you've done. I love the Twilight Zone vibe, of course. I LOL'd at the exterior airplane shots with the wires holding it up (great callback to 50s special effects). Really well done. Please make more. Lots more.
Thank you so much George! I'm very glad you enjoyed this one and The Librarian. Thank you for playing! :)
Played both episodes but Episode 2 was wayy better in story wise, and I enjoyed it more than Episode 1
Well we said we would do it, and we did.
Thanks again we played Part 2 and loved it!Can't wait for part 3!!
Another amazing game. I loved it just as much if not more to the first one. Keep up the amazing work.
jogo tem tradução português brasil?/game has translation português brazil?
I really admire your work and how amazing the art style music, and way of the story for each episode were. Great job, and how you get more supporters mate. thanks for your work and games
I really enjoyed this second episode. I really liked the use of different scenes on this one. I made another play through and thought I'd drop you a link.
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...
