Definitely great work! The "short form" vignette works well.
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.

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!
Very interesting game, can't wait for the next episodes!
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!
It was intriguing, beautiful art n music! We definitely need more of this :D
This was awesome! I can't wait to see more "Midnight Scenes" games from you! You have my total support! I love these short, psychological horror point-and-click games and the fact that it's also a pixel-horror just makes it that much more unique. Thanks for making this!
amazing game i need to see more episodes <3
Great little game Octavi, congrats!
Very atmospheric, has a really great tone.
As it happens, my wife and I are currently working our way through the old Twilight Zone episodes and this just fits perfectly in that world.
We look forward to more in the series someday! :D
P.S. - If any other Mac users get an "The application ... can't be opened" error, see here for a potential fix! ;o)
Such an amazing episode! I hope you will release more as time goes on. Midnight Scenes has the old school black-and-white horror vibes (which I LOVE) while maintaining the spirit of creating fantastical situations and unique supernatural entities. Please consider packaging as a full game, I know I'd buy it!
In short, I loved it! Keep up the great work! ♡ ♡ ♡
OOO I loved this so much! Reminded me so much of watching the twilight zone! The pixel style, the mystery, the puzzles, it's all so good! Made a video, hope you like it!
Really liked this story, good spooky mistery!
I loved the atmosphere of the game! The art style is really nice, and so is the music. 10/10 would play more episodes.
Magnificent atmospheric game, sorry for that short!
This artwork is incredible. The puzzles were great too.
Absolutely loved this! So many questions! Music was great as well. I can't wait for the next installments.
(Also, this took me way longer than other people because I'm really, really dumb <3 )
Loved everything about this game! I really hope they will be creating more exactly like this. Plus did anyone else get the Twilight Zone vibes?
This is an amazing game! Beautifully made! It would be great if you were to do more like this. Here's my playthrough! :D
Really enjoyed this game, reminds me of Thimbleweed Park and Stranger Things! :)
Beautiful style! We want more!
Its such an awesome game
Awesome mood and style! Looking forward to more :)
Super cool! Would be amazing if this became a full fletched thing that there's several short little stories like this. Amazing. Love it
Stay Rad Everybody!!

Creepy, but not terrifying. It feels like something might be behind you at every turn, but you're not sure.
And just when you let your guard down...
