a_neverending_night is a retro visual novel adventure that takes place in an unfinished and buggy roleplaying program based on old roleplay text adventures.

The narrative of a_neverending_night takes place within a_clearing_in_the_forest – a buggy  program that would allow players to go on roleplaying adventures and preserve their stories within it. The program has long since been abandoned and the villains within it are now permanently killing off players and the program is erasing itself. It’s up to you to venture into the strange fantasy world of a_clearing_in_the_forest and try to preserve the memories of the players.


- Currently a 20 minute demo.

- Pick from three classes! Warrior, Thief, Mage - or choose to not be any!

- Authentic retro-look throughout, based on Macintosh Hypercard assets entirely (had nothing to do with Yahoo! Chat but I think it looks cool and fitting, also a creative challenge for me to base characters around available assets).

- Multiple endings to discover.

All assets are from the Hypercard pack made by @egardepe. Game made in Ren'Py.

Any feedback would be cool (is it fun?). Hope you like it (and want to see more)!

Absolutely excellent. If you are interested, I could help a bit with tweaking the language. You can find me at tinsnip.tumblr.com. I look forward to seeing where this goes!
