Great game! Clever, fair puzzles, funny dialogue, and honestly it's length is a strength as well! Short and sweet.

Thanks a lot! Really glad you found it funny and I totally agree, I also really like short games you can complete in one sitting :)
the perfect game for me--short with cool puzzles, cute character designs, and great dialogue! took me about 40 minutes and i loved every second of it!!
Thank you so much for the kind feedback! I'm really glad you liked the dialogue, English isn't my native language so it took me quite some time to write all of it. Thanks again for playing! :D
It's really fun and I liked the subconsciousness of the game! It's like players are also in the dream lol
pixel art sprites are so beautiful and adorable XD especially the mouse was so cute!! it was very enjoyable! thanks!
Thanks for playing! Haha yeah I love breaking the 4th wall ;)
Really happy you liked the pixel art too! You can look forward to a sequel somewhere in the future ;)
i loved the game so much!!! weird and funny, my favourite type of games xD
btw, the puzzles are harder than i thought!!! I spent more than 30 minutes trying to know the code D:
So happy to hear you liked it so much! Oh yeah that is definitely the most confusing puzzle of them all, glad you managed to solve it though :)
Adorably weird and fun game! Love it!
Thanks. Now I will never eat a pizza again for fear that I'll turn into a video game grandpa and my room will glitch out around me.
And thanks for supporting the bundle.
Haha, even worse, that pizza will change into you and you don't exist anymore :O
Of course :D
this was such a cute game! it took a while of me prodding around to get through some of the puzzles but it was a short and sweet game! really enjoyable!!
Thank you very much for playing! Some of the puzzles are a bit confusing but I'm glad you didn't give up :)
Ah, this was fun! Got it in the bundle. Particularly made me giggle because a) I have a cat, b) Who is often nicknamed Nonsense :D
I may always wonder what was in the boxes...
Thanks a lot for playing! The bundle has sooo many games so I'm really happy you decided to try Nonsense at Nightfall :) I really love cats myself (my next game is a platformer called Cats and Coins ;) ), That's quite a fun nickname :P
Haha, I'm planning on making a sequel where you will have an inventory so who knows there might be something somewhere in a box you can take with you :P
Thank you for this game, it was entertaining! :) Nice and short, with a bit of puzzle, lots of funny interactions & throwbacks to other games, and never knowing where the story might turn.
Really fun game! The jokes were great
I really enjoyed your game. I'm looking forward to your next one.
haha this is called a real game with story so exciting and it was all time interesting that I played in on go took me one hour but I completed I loved it I enjoyed it great work
Thank you very much for playing and making the video! Really happy to hear you enjoyed it so much :)
I loved it! Keep up whit the amazing work! :)
Really cute and fun game, I love the GB style, brings back a lot of nice memories!
I will look forward for your next games! :)
Thanks you very much for playing and glad you liked the Game Boy style! A new game is coming (hopefully) later this month :)
This is one of the most quirky and charming puzzle games I've played in a while. I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to see what you make next :)
Thank you very much for playing and leaving this nice feedback! I'm currently working on a little platform game with built-in level editor but after that I'll be working on a sequel to this game!
I got this in the bundle, it was a lot of fun to play! Really simple but fun. There were a few moments that made me laugh as well so that's a plus. It definitely took a turn I wasn't expecting, love the style. I am so glad you included pallete and screen size options, I cannot stress enough how many times i've needed these. Excited for the sequel!
Thank you very much for getting the bundle and playing my game! The bundle has so many good games and I can imagine it's hard to decide which ones to try first so I'm really happy you decided to play mine and that you enjoyed it :) Also glad my absurd humor made you laugh :P And oh yeah, it's always good to give players settings like that even in simple games :) Can't wait to continue development on the sequel!
It's a cute lil romp of a game! the space room and UFO was my favorite bit, the gameboy style is great but dang something with that aesthetic would be rad!
Thanks a lot for playing and glad you liked that part! Don't exactly understand what you're saying in that last sentence... Which aesthetic?
Very lovely game! I have a soft spot for games like this! Please create more if you can!
Thanks you very much! Still planning on making a sequel which will be the same genre (absurd adventure) but a lot longer and in color :D
This was a well thought out puzzle adventure. I really enjoyed the aesthetic and the subtle humor.
I love how this game is going through the fourth wall like "Some...BODY ONCE TOLD ME"
No, seriously, that was fun. If it's going to be a sequel, I'm totally playing it
Haha, I love breaking the fourth wall breaking :P
Thanks a lot for playing! I started working on a sequel a while ago but haven't made much progress as I've been focusing on other projects. One day there will be one though ;)
What a clever game. I really enjoyed this a lot. It had a very luigi's mansion kind of vibe. Thankyou for making this available to play!
It's a really weird, fun and cool game. I liked the whole concept and the GBA style. This is one of the best pixeleted games I've played so far! Nice Job! I'm looking for another part or sequel of it. BTW, I'd love a horror game of this style so if you make one then I'd be glad to play it.
Thanks a lot! A sequel is planned ;) I'm not really into horror myself so you'll have to look elsewhere for horror in this style.
Actually I'm really afraid of horror stuffs too but I think that a horror game in this style will not be that much scary. BTW, you can make a horror game which isn't really related to ghosts but is related to normal stuffs, misunderstandings, hallucination and dreams. Although these are just my ideas I think that you may come up with much more interesting concepts.
I like ghost, hallucinations and dream stuff but more in the weird and absurd way (I don't feel like making it scary), that's kind of what this game is :)
Yeah sure, I was literally afraid at first while playing this game thinking that something might jumpscare me but everything was fine. Btw, when is your next game coming? May we get a sneak peek or something? And I have one humble request to you that is, can you try to make the movement speed faster or somewhat optimised? It was the only thing that was bothering me the whole time. How about making it 2× faster like the emulators found on stores? I would really appreciate that. But anyway, all the best for your next game!
Haha, someone else that made a video also announced it as a horror game but it really isn't. I haven't worked that much on the sequel yet but I did already post about it on social media (see links to all of them on my profile page here). It doesn't really make sense to me that you want the player character to walk even faster... Especially not 2x, the player already walks faster than in most games (unless for some reason the game was running slow for you but I doubt it).
Here is my playthrough of your game with a review at 21:55.
I ran into a bug where my framerate was uncapped. I play the game anyways, but does anyone know what happened there?
gtx 1070 ti
Thanks again for playing! As I also replied on Game Jolt, the framerate bug is because the game expects a maximum refresh rate of 60. I forgot some people have displays with twice as much or even more! My next game won't have that problem :)
Just finished the game, I loved it !
I like how robust it looks, the palette, the effects and the controller are really nice.
I would like to ask, I know the game was made in Unity but did you use a framework that helped to get this 2d world pokemon feel or did you build it completely from scratch ? If you used a framework I would be glad to hear the name. I am developer but not in the game industry, however I have an educational personal project I would like to develop and it'd be nice to use this environment as a base assets.
Really looking forward for an answer from you. Regards
Thank you very much for playing and the kind words!
I built and made everything from scratch! I'm mainly an artist so even though it's definitely inspired by Pokémon and Zelda on Game Boy, it's all original art. I've also been programming for 10 years now and I always prefer writing stuff myself as a challenge and to keep everything clean and in control. So I can't really help you with that, I also can't recommend any frameworks that might exist as I've never tried or looked for any...
I wish you all the best with your project though :)
Thanks for taking the time to reply as well !
It's ok and I understand the need of building things from scratch especially for an artist because that is how freedom gives the end product a unique personality.
My Education project is similar to a kanji quest or let's put it this way, you have to walk in a world and find chinese characters or kanji. This really doesn't need a lot of storyline as the main idea is to randomize the objectives. The reason why I wish I could create a game game boy style is because : it's cute, minimalistic, still fun and I guess fast to build when you have the right sprites.
Such a game would be perfect for people learning Japanese or Chinese because they could have the sense of playing a game while having a good environment that helps them to memorize characters more easily. Also there is a collecting-object-oriented excitement to this idea, collecting objects is cool let's be honest.
I am a web developer and over the 5 past years I built a personal database of +3000 Chinese/Japanese characters with few metadatas and translation associated with each of them. That's education first but now that I have valuable data I thought that'd be nice to cast it into a more interactive environment such as games.
I know you most certainly have your mind on other things right now but IF you ever find this idea interesting I'd be glad to provide public this data upon a collaborative agreement. Education + game, that is a good recipe :)
Have a good day
It's reminiscent of the Molly episode from What Remains of Edith Finch
Enjoyed the concept. The silly and unexpected keeps you on your toes. Pin code puzzle was a bit challenging, but not impossible.
Having H as the Interact key was a little unintuitive.
Story line is definitely one of the biggest strengths of these pixel art games and should be enhanced wherever possible!
I enjoyed the game overall. Keep up the good work. I look forward to playing your other games.
Thanks a lot for playing!
The pin code puzzle was definitely the most confusing and I'll make sure all puzzles will be clearer in the sequel ;)
Yeah, I just decided on H as it works well when you use either the arrow keys or WASD for walking.
For the sequel I'll make sure the story is even better and makes a bit more sense :P
Really cool game! Liked it so much!
I loved it! I wish it were longer. I played it and put it up here on YouTube. I hope you make a sequel or a similar game!
Thank you very much for playing and making a video! I'll watch it when I find the time :D I definitely will ;)
Enjyed this one. Great stuff!. :)
Are you planning to release the tileset?
This is an incredibly fun little game! It really captures the quality of the adventure puzzle games I would play as a kid, and it was fun to revisit that type of world while still having something original. Great work!
Thank you very much for playing and the nice comment! I was inspired by all the games I used to play as a kid myself and I'm glad it made you think of the ones you played back in the day too :)
Good start to my saturday, it was nice to play and reminded me of old school game boy games 10/10
I loved it! It was cute and funny and great for a quick playthrough for something to do. I loved that the note on the elevator changed, that actually made me laugh. And the animation of the character was really good too, I found myself walking back and forth just to watch myself move sometimes :P
I would love to see a sequel to this with maybe a larger concept but the same humor and art style!
Thank you very much for the nice comment!
I'll definitely make a sequel in the future which will be bigger and better in every way :D
It's a nice game, but it's too short
Wow! I really enjoyed the game, it was random, weird and fun. I loved the style and different color schemes. Can't wait for more! :)
that was some really good game :-D
Looking forward to a sequel! :-)
this was fun! i had a nice time. i like the minimalistic style, it reminds me a lot of the first pokemon games :) not all games have to have some big picture. great job. i'm wondering if there are any secrets i missed out on?
Thank you very much for the nice comment!
It's definitely inspired by the first Pokémon games on Game Boy ;) I totally agree!
Not really secrets but there are a lot of references/Easter eggs in the game. There's a list of them in the devlog section :)
