A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Things are different at night. Familiar objects behave strangely. Interact with light sources and shadow objects to solve puzzles. Explore night locations, collect crystals to activate various mechanisms and portals. And use the lightbulb in your head.

Night Lights is 2D puzzle platformer, based on lights and shadows interaction, currently in development for Windows/Mac/Linux.


  • Shadow objects, changing their shape or disappearing completely in the light
  • Different night places to explore: forests, city rooftops and more strange locations
  • Various mechanisms, powered by crystals
  • System of portals
  • Lightbulb in your head

This is early demo of the game, created for Indiegogo & Greenlight campaigns. Demo is short and will take ~15 minutes to finish. It shows basic gameplay features and captures overall mood and direction in which the game is moving.

Night Lights is working fine with Xbox 360/Xbox One controllers. Some other controllers should work as well, but I didn't test them. Tooltips are only available for Xbox controllers at this moment.

Also the demo is mostly linear, but in full game there will be more complex portal network.


  • ARROWS — Walk
  • SPACE — Jump
  • X — Interact
  • C — Grab
  • SHIFT — Use lamp

super cool demo!

Anyone have information on when this is coming out? I'm still super pumped!

An update came out in the indiegogo page. I'd recommend you read it for yourself.

it's just awesome.

My son is 7 years old, he's been looking forward for this game since the demo released. He's still asking about it and will be so happy when it releases.

pretty good, a bit slow

This game was really cool! I loved the mechanics and wish there was more! It got so cool at the end with the new mechanic, excited for the full game! 

I had so much fun playing this game, you should definitely play it if you havn't already.

I wasn't sure how this would play from the screenshots but it turned out to be a great idea for a game. It played really well.



It starts off rather easy but, gets more and, more difficult!

Such a cool game. Very unique way to progress with the lights, I can't remember ever seeing something like that before :D

The art style is awesome and the game just generally has a nice flow to it! I had loads of fun playing it and can't wait until the full game is released.

Well done! :D

I really liked this game because of the interesting mechanics, the art style and the music/sound that the game had. I really can't wait to play the full game in all honestly and in my opinion has a lot of potential. Here is my video on this wonderful game if you want to check it out.

I do many videos like this so come check out the channel if you like :D

Hello! I played the game and I have to say I loved the mechanics, it was really interesting to try to solve puzzles! One of them tripped me up a bit too. The music was very nice and the graphics were very visually pleasing! I made a game play video to anyone that would like to check it out! :)

Very nice graphic style, usually I'm not a fun of minimalistic graphics but his one does it well. Love the choice of colors.

Good game overall. I like the light mechanics of this game, it is new in puzzle platformers. It has a fantastic soundtrack. Can't wait for the full game to be released :D

Hope this game will be successful. Also, I did a playthrough of this, you can check it out if you want ;)

A brilliant and challenging puzzle game with a beautiful minimalistic art style that will give you eyegasms throughout.


Excuse, may I ask what the soundtrack in this game is called, or do you have a download link? I really like it :] Thank you


I believe the game developer has hand made it. I'd love to know if he decides to sell it by its self. All I see right now is a music perk on his indigogo.


If it was made by him, I'd definitely like to buy it, if he decides to sell. Made the game experience much more better.

Agreed! Very chill but moving music. I sure hope he decides to sell it as well :)

Hi! I'm working on music by myself. The music in this demo is work in progress pieces, they are not finished. And yes, soundtrack will be available after game release.


OMG love the way you have to use the light to solve the puzzle and that part when he got an idea LOL


I am so glad I saw this from jacksepticeye, it's a wonderful concept and I love how the main character even has adorable little feet when moving around. The only thing I would say could have adjustment is the controls, they're not awful but I think there could be improvement. All in all well done devs! I look forward to a full game.


I think this game truly shows how much you can do with just a simple mechanic. Well done developers
