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

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 ;)
EDIT: The drop @ the last part was anticlimactic :(

Nice game, looking forward for your full game

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


I first found this game on Jacksepticeye's channel and decided to give it a go!

Also, I enjoyed it enough to give it a more thorough review on my blog! Keep up the great work BMBCRCKR!!


I do like this game, I just can't figure out why sometimes my guy jumps super high and other times he doesn't...

Just played through the game, and I LOVED it! Some parts of it are very reminiscent of Limbo and Inside, and a really enjoyed that. The puzzles and mechanics grew increasingly more interesting and difficult throughout the demo, but never once felt tired or boring. My favorite part was near the end when he gets the lightbulb on top of his head and he BECOMES the light. That added so many more challenges and possibilities to the gameplay. I can't wait to see and play the full game when it comes out!

I love this game, its mechanics and the puzzles, i do have some constructive criticism though. The games buttons were irritating as i kept finding myself changing the volume and brightness of my computer instead of pressing X so maybe try a few different buttons for interaction, i thought maybe Ctrl or something like that. I had a similar problem with the general controls, especially jumping, if you're going to use space as a jump button then please use WAS&D to move simply because it feels more natural or if you would rather use the arrow keys then use up as jump. On the topic of jumping the mechanics for jumping aren't the best and were quite annoying, i'm not sure how to fix this but it's just a point to make. In general though Great game and I love the mechanics and original Ideas.

Thanks for mentioning the control problems. Actually I don't really like current control scheme, it still needs adjustments. So I will work on it.

enjoyed the game it is a very different style puzzled game that is very intresting can't wait to see the full game i found this game from jacksepticeye and it is an awsome game

Thank you for playing!


Played this awesome game! Can't wait until it comes out :)

Thanks for your video! Glad you liked the demo.

I enjoyed playing the game but i found a glitch which is easily abused. You can jump infinetly high depending op how many times you press the jump button while your game is paused if ur standing on the ground.

Thanks for catching this bug!

Really cool little game, I enjoyed playing it! :)


Thank you!

Отличная игра! Жду релиза.

Спасибо за видео! Рад, что понравилось демо.
