How to create the style of "The Last Night" in unity?The sprite2D can't affect by light.

I have a problem, When i click start it suddently closes and gives me an error.


PS: I have linux

Hi Christopher, currently having an issue when starting the game. Its running as if the up arrow key is stuck on. The arrow key isnt actually stuck as when I click the windows button the character stops moving and stands still. But going back to the game he starts moving again. I can only use the up and down arrows. The left and right arrows will not work. Running wnidows 10, latest update. i7 4790K, GTX 1080 with latest nvidia graphics drivers, 32gb ram. I really really want to play this game, what do you think?

Could you do a restart of your computer and try again? If that doesn't work, could try using the WASD keys instead?

Disregard my above comment! Managed to find the issue and resolved it. Turns out you cant have a flight sim joystick plugged in and play the game, it starts taking inputs from the joystick! Playing now, and so far, incredible!

i have a MacBook Air and when i open the file there is nothing on the screen. Only a black screen appears. Help!


Hey very sorry to hear that. Unfortunately this is a known issue with some mac models and I am still unsure of what's causing the problem. 


One of the most gorgeous games I have played to date. Can definitely feel the Bioshock vibe coming through strong which made me love it even more. Massive fan of the franchise and thanks to you, I really want go back and play it. I can't believe this is just a school project, I sincerely hope you make more awesome titles in the future. Quick one though, the gun is buggy, pretty T doesn't really shot very well. Otherwise awesome game!


A lot better than i expected.

Good job man

This game is incredible. I had a blast playing it. The music and the atmosphere that it sets were amazing. The art style was different and refreshing. The story also has some nice twists. Excellent work! I can't wait to check out more of your games! Well worth the time for anyone on the fence about playing it!

Thank you for playing the game, hope you enjoyed it! 

I did! I'm really looking forward to more of your titles! 


Wow this looks incredible!

the game just shows a white blank,but it is still possible to open the menu and settings, I'm using windows

Sorry for this. Unfortunately this is a known issue that is present for some graphics card. Can I check what's your specifications?

i dont really know much about those kind of things, but i will try lol.

i used and i was able to get to this

Strong computer requirements, I have:

  Model Name: MacBook Pro
  Model Identifier: MacBookPro15,2
  Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Core i5
  Processor Speed:  2,3 GHz
  Number of Processors: 1
  Total Number of Cores:  4
  L2 Cache (per Core):  256 KB
  L3 Cache: 6 MB
  Hyper-Threading Technology: Enabled
  Memory: 16 GB

And some scenes get slower and slower, dialogues for example the sound goes faster than the subtitles, and playability gets also affected.

Maybe it will help if there is an option to chose an smaller resolution.

Possible bug?

I got stuck in the theatre behind a fallen column:

Incredible good graphics, with a lot of details. Very immersive experience.

Thank you :)

I liked this very much! wish it was longer..

Very good and polished game. Great Music and great artstyle. I noticed one Bug: When you shoot inside of the elevator you dont get lifted.

But still very fun to play.

The game looks absolutely gorgeous, but the shooting was a little bit wonky. But still its an awesome game

The project definitely isn't polished, but it's a uni final project, so that's understandable. :D

But the idea is really nice, as well as the concept. The devs definitely combined film and game together to make something quite fun here.

The only part that isn't fun though, is the combat. It's buggy and shooting in a 2D way in a 3D environment doesn't work all that well, considering that you have to move on the Z axis to be able to shoot your enemies, not knowing when they will shoot. Thus the combat is a bit unfait.

Great job though, do play it.


Thanks for the feedback!

Interesting idea, well executed, good graphics. Those are the things I think this game does best. A longer and more refined version would be great. The only Issue I have with it is the gun-combat.

Linux user here. Running Pop!_OS 19.10 (based on Ubuntu) on a System76 Darter Pro. 32Gb ram. Intel® Core™ i7-10510U CPU @ 1.80GHz × 8. Intel® UHD Graphics (Comet Lake 3x8 GT2). 64bit.

When running the game it first ran really slow. Restarted it and for some reason it ran faster, still slow, but fast enough to do things. Kept running into black screens. But the biggest one is when leaving the office. Black screen when trying to go outside. Not sure if the game is still running and i cant see it or it froze. Had to force quit.

But really loving the look of the game. Looking forward to actually playing the game. keep up the good work. hope the bugs can be worked out.

I like the game. Keep up the good work!

I am not a gamer. Last time I ever really played computer games for probably decades ago. Yet I downloaded and played the game just based on the trailer you posted on reddit.com/r/pixelart a few weeks ago.

WOW, this game's art was absolutely stunning! I was so immersed in the environment and the game has such a great vibe/music. It was a delight to play or even just sit back and watch.


This means a lot to me! Really Glad that you enjoyed it. This game was made for a chill experience and for the player to be immersed in the environment!

This is the best game I have played this year! Please continue or create a game with the same mechanics, I thought it was a little fun game but it was so much more! PURE TALENT!!!!!  


It has been a LOOOOONG time since I've played a great game like this with this kind of astmosphere... A mix of 2.5D, plus Godrays is AMAZING!

I happened to stumble upon this gem by chance. Boy what an experience. I don't play games that much lately but I honestly find it hard to remember a game with an atmosphere so rich as this one. Really, the looks, the soundtrack, it all just fits so well together.

I would love to see some more adventuring and perhaps a bit less of fighting even though death was not punishing. I hope to see more like this or this one developed further :)

I’m Glad you enjoyed what I wanted to depict. Will take note on the feedback and stay tuned!


The game launches ok but the character constantly walks toward the camera. It's like the down arrow is constantly stuck on. Pressing up (or W) makes him walk away, and Shift works to start running, but I can't move left or right :(

Very strange. Could you do a restart and try again to see if that button stuck issue is fixed?

I downloaded the windows version and experienced a weird glitch where the game starts up with a white screen that looks like a bright light is being shined on the character. I can play the game and tell that the character is moving since it gave me a prompt to pick up the time device but I cannot see anything. I tried downloading it multiple times and had the same issue. 

Sorry to hear this. I am still looking into a fix for this.

Is it a problem on my end or in the game itself

Most of  windows users work fine. I have a feeling it has to do with the graphics card.

Oh, that's *really* weird - I'd restarted once and it didn't help, but a second restart got it working! And I'm glad it did - what a wonderful game :) Thank you!


Great game! concept is really good. Sometimes I couldn't see the player though, which was not great. Combat felt weird, but not bad.

Thanks for the feedback, will see to that in future projects.

it was a great game btw, I really liked the style 


Loved the Visual Art Style and Core Concept of the game! I too made a video on it but none the less this was a fantastic experience from start to finish.

Thanks for playing the game ;)

This game looks amazing! i like how you took the concept from In Time and turned it into a video game! this was an awesome game to play i can't wait to see what else you create! also i did a lets play on this game here is the video i hope you enjoy!

Thanks for playing the game! The letterboxes seems to not appear correctly in your video. Can I check what is your resolution?

Sure thing! my resolution was 1680 x 1050


This game was very creative!

It was a great game to play and record!

Hello! I really liked your game, it has some nice aesthetics and it captures the "Noir" feel. I was curious what kind of engine do you use? I was planning to make a pixel game. Please reply ASAP, Ty. :)

It was made in Unity!

Thanks for that game loved everything in it, from the art to the music and all those little easteregg from the 20'! My video isn't good enough for the game but it's a start :)

very nice game


Thank you :)


Arch Linux user here. Yeah, so, the game crashes with a SIGSEGV when trying to leave the office, 100% of the time.

Unfortunately there are some unknown conflicts for certain Linux OS. I would recommend playing on another OS (if possible) as of now! 


Yeah I ended up just using the windows version through wine, which worked fine.


This game was truly a masterpiece, I absolutely adored the art style and the feeling it brought on. In all honestly I did not understand the ending, but I felt it could be significant. Looking forward to (hopefully) more work from you, Christopher. :)


Really glad the game made you feel that way. Stay tuned!

Your game looks so good.I'd love to see another one but like 3 hours long atleast 

Thanks for playing! We shall see...

Thanks for the gameplay video! Hope you enjoyed it.

Really enjoyed TimeOut. The art style is so distinctive and the world you have created really evocative. Hope to see more from you in the future. Got a copywrite claim on YouTube...as expected :)

Thanks for playing, will get the claims sorted :)
