"what an amazing story!! i loved the atmosphere and mood. it was creepy and sad and nostalgic and fun all at once!! this is one that will stick with me for a long time."
- Frostyflakes, textadventures.co.uk

"A fantastic blend of creepiness and genuine emotion... At the beginning it was the atmosphere that I found outstanding, the author crafted a very eerie setting (I was sincerely scared to go outside). At the end, I have to admit I got a little teary.  A very well done story."
- Archerqueen08, textadventures.co.uk

"I was surprised by how creepy I found it - definitely glad that I played it during daylight, and still had to look over my shoulder several times because the hairs on the back of my neck were standing up!"

Excellently creepy and a lot of fun!  Night House was just the right length of play time, and just the right amount of difficulty, puzzle-wise.  Thank you for making this game!


Thanks for the kind words! Glad you enjoyed it! :)

That was really neatly done, very atmospheric. Nice stuff!


Thanks very much! :) Glad you enjoyed it.
