Death in the Night

For many years now, the platformer genre has found its connoisseur, despite the rapid evolution of computer graphics. Death in the Night is a quality representative of this trend. The game was created in 2022, and the developer of the indie project is Studio2760.


The originality of the concept can already be felt at the moment of entering the game. You will have to pass the levels in the guise of Death himself. This choice of character steadily sets the trend for the entire atmosphere. The levels are full of dark atmosphere, full of graveyard crosses and hint at the presence of other otherworldly forces. Notably, Death has a special mission in the game: to collect the souls of pets. Gameplay features:

  • An elaborate level system. Despite primitive graphics, you shouldn't expect the platformer to pass quickly. Each level is quite complex, confronts the gamer with numerous traps and forces him to solve puzzles
  • A variety of barriers. To pass successfully, you will have to avoid the shattering saws. There are a lot of them here, they are encountered literally all the time. Also, Death must beware of dangerous traps, instantly destroying the character in case of contact
  • Cat Killing. Not all gamers are ready to get acquainted with the project concerning violence against pets. Death needs to strangle pets. to send them to the afterlife
  • Interesting mechanics. A system of teleports and levers, as well as clever controls are at the player's disposal

Project Features

The grim atmosphere of the game is akin to other well-known projects like Little Nightmares. Other things to look out for:

  • Two-dimensional graphics. The game world is made in dark colours. The lack of 3-D did not prevent the developer from making the levels creepy and, at times, downright terrifying
  • Soundtrack. The music has received mixed reviews from players. Some note that the music seems primitive. In fact, it perfectly complements the drawing and reflects the mood of what is happening on the screen
  • Challenging Challenges. The puzzles will have to work hard. Each task is elaborated and distinguished by an unusual solution
  • Presence of bugs. Unfortunately, the game does not boast stable operation. In Death in the Night you can crashes, saves do not always work, sometimes the level just freezes

Pros and cons

It is worth concluding with the pros and cons of the project. The positives include:

  • The dark atmosphere
  • Unusual protagonist
  • The system of levels
  • The approach to creating puzzles
  • Quality mechanics

It is not without its drawbacks:

  • You have to strangle cats to win
  • The game is not always stable
  • You may not like the music
  • The playthrough may seem too difficult

The project has excellent potential and an average implementation. It has already made a decent showing on the platformer market, but needs improvement and improvement, at least in terms of stability. At the moment, it can be rated 7/10.
