Absolutely fantastic! I was a little sad that it ended when it did, I wanted to keep playing in this universe forever :D Can't wait to see the next episode!!!
Midnight Scenes: The Highway
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Claire Barnes is about to discover what kind of horrors lurk in the darkness of a deserted road.
In tonight's episode The Highway, we follow Claire on her attempt to resume her journey after an unexpected obstacle appears in front of her car.
The visual style and mystery theme of this game are strongly influenced by Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone.

Nice little adventure game! I especially loved the horror - x-files atmosphere!!
Also i liked the fact that it only require common sense to solve it and it didn't have some weird puzzles.
I can't wait for more 'Midnight Scenes' episodes!
I really want to check this out more! ^_^
what do you record with?
muy buen juego
lo pongo de nuevo ya que lo subi a twitch y gusto mucho tube mas espectadores y claro les di el link. espero la segunda parte.
en verdad me encanto
Hmmm.. it was good, but was way too short. I had hoped it'd take 30 minutes to play... nope. easy to figure out, but that was a good feature, just add more to Episode 2.
Rated 5 *'s
I surprisingly really enjoyed this, I don't normally like pixel games like this.
Will you be making more horror games like this?
Thanks for playing! I'm currently working on Episode 2, so stay tuned! :)
Hey, I really enjoyed playing your game, so much so that I gave it a 5 star review. I was curious as to what program you used to draw and what type of tablet do you use to draw with?
Thanks for playing and the 5 stars! :) The art was made with Photoshop and my lovely Wacom Intuos 3 tablet.
very cool game really had fun with it and like the short story style really cool cant wait for more!!
I made a video about this game. This is a amazing game i really enjoyed it
Thank you for playing and sharing your video! <3
I played your game and made a video on it!
Hey I played your game and made a video of it!
You gotta make more to this. This is Just good. So much emotion in it aswell.
This game has a great atmosphere. We really enjoyed it.
We want more Midnight scenes !!!
Here is a short video we made while playing:Keep up the good work!!!
HI, men i really love your art and love the way you do it, i want make a donation, but i don't have money for now... sorry but, i say it again, i really love your art :D keep doing a great job!!!
This was very subtle, and very creepy. I appreciated that you conveyed the horror through atmosphere rather than jump scares. The black and white palette and the lack of in-your-face violence made this look very old school to me, and it had more of a sad/tragic vibe than an evil one.
Have you ever wondered how to scare someone? Flat tires!
xDxD your video was hilarious. Thanks so much for sharing!
I played the gaem! it's funny! 재밌게 플레이했어요:)
Hey, I played this a while ago and I was really into it! I'm not a guy that loves jumpscare-kinda horror games so this felt genuinely a bit creepy but interesting! Good job on this gem!
Thank you! I'm glad you liked it and thanks for sharing your playthrough video, it was fun to watch! :)
1.Muy buen juego, en verdad ,la atmosfera es impactante, la banda sonora
asi como la trama del juego es de las mejores que he jugado para ser un juego tan corto
metro encanto espero sigan sacando mas partes
You are very good at creating an atmosphere that's creepy without being overtly scary. I was super hesitant with every click I made, even though most things acted normally, or at the very least didn't jump out at me.
Thank you! That was exactly my intention. I don't like jump scares at all. I'm more into this kind of subtle horror that just makes you feel uneasy, so I'm glad it worked :)
I got pretty frustrated at this game, but in the end, I thought it was pretty good.
the game was amazing I really enjoyed it. I liked your style. keep it up and I hope you make another game like this
watch video here:
Thank you so much for playing and posting this video! I'm really glad you liked it :)
Very effective use of greyscale pixel-art in the story telling. Wish the gameplay were longer though. Looking forward to the next episode, hopefully with more of the backstory ...
Definitely great work! The "short form" vignette works well.
Why you needed to end the adventure so short my friend? There are no words to describe how GOOD! that was.
Incredible art style, really good sound design and an story that, while we don't know much, is engaging and really intriguing!
It was so good that I was a bit mad it was over, god, how good it was!
Please continue with the great work, I cannot express it enough, make this a full flesh out game, or, as it shows a clear inspiration and homage from "The Twilight Zone" make it a series of anthology games. I'm not anyone to say what you should do next, but buddy, you have potential, please continue doing this. I will follow your work really closely
Thank you so much!! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Stay tuned for news of a new game very soon! :D
I'd like to thank you all for your super kind comments and awesome videos!! I'm sorry if I'm not replying all your posts but rest assured that I read all of them and I watch all your Let's Plays which is super fun! :D
Thank you so much for playing!!
Stay tuned for news about my next short game!
Midnight Scenes is an episodic horror game where out lovely Girl drives around in her lovely car, looking for lovely places and now she is in a bloody lovely situation.
A very nice game with a Twilight Zone feel to it. I enjoyed it very much!
I love your style man! Your game is the perfect example of how a horror game not necessarily needs jumpscares. It's mind blowing that you did it just by yourself, I'm astonished. I can't believe that this is your first game either. I enjoyed it so much, I will be waiting next chater or whatever thing you're working on. Loved it, Thank You!
Why did it have to be soooo quick?? lol Making a LP for this game was super fun! I loved the music and the spookiness of the story. I was just moving along, enjoying my playthrough, when all of a sudden BOOM. End. No flaws I could suspect; only tooo short! I'm curious, are there other 'Midnight Scenes' games that came out before this one? Great work!!!
xDxD Sorry about that. It's my first game so I felt it had to be a super short project if I wanted to finish it before being distracted with something else. I'm glad you enjoyed it though! Thank you so much for playing and stay tuned for more short games like this one! :)
That was quite fun, I love the pixelly style and it was very intriguing.
I loved it! I thought it was very well done. Reminded me of the Twilight zone! Hope to see more!
Just saw a let's play of this. Lovely game - fantastic pixel art and intriguing story. This could honestly be a longer adventure game, I would dig a story about trying to uncover a conspiracy. You did a great job! I'll be looking forward to more stuff from you. :>
played this recently and got actually pretty absorbed into the story, I also enjoyed the twilight zone feel I got from it. 👍🏻🥔
Please, PLEASE do more of this series. Such an original style that gave me borderline Stranger Things vibes, and it being my favorite series I can say it did a lot for the appeal to me.
FANTASTIC job, friend!
Thank you so much for playing, everyone!! I'm watching all your videos and they are great! It feels so awesome to watch people playing and enjoying your own work :D <3<3<3
This game was really cool! I'm a little sad I waited to play this til the end of the month
Hi. Playing the mac version, game broke when I got to the emergency phone - phone "overlay" doesn't show up, though you can still interact with it. When I got out of the overlay (by clicking the invisible 'back' arrow), I could not move at all.
Real nice. It's short yet didn't fail to give me the creeps! The ending's mysterious too, I like how it's up to the player to connect the dots of what happened.
I made a video on it :)
This was great, so darn great. Love the old-school pixelated style, love the minimalistic aura and love the story. I really hope you make more in this series, I've always been a huge Twilight Zone and Tales of the Unexpected fan and this tickled me =)
Keep up the awesome work!
