Philippine folklore has always been rich in mystical creatures with fascinating origins, and it’s time the whole world found out. With Nightfall: Escape, the terrifying first-person survival horror game from Zeenoh Games, Philippine mythical creatures finally take center stage—and they are awesomely horrific.

Nightfall3 Story and gameplay

An abandoned Spanish mansion, a tragic tale of love and loss, a plethora of evil creatures, and a flashlight—these are what Nightfall: Escape leaves you with. Filipino game developer Zeenoh Games unleashes a hair-raising story about the telltale creatures of the night that we know so well, and incorporates all these classic survival horror elements into one heart-stopping game. For instance, when you see an old cracked door in front of you in the middle of nowhere in complete darkness, you obviously know nothing good can come out of the other side—but you have to open that darn door anyway. What’s the online casino point of all the anxiety and paranoia of horror games if you don’t?

The setting: Northern Philippines. As young female journalist Ara Cruz, you must investigate an abandoned town where whispers of supernatural sightings and occurrences abound. Some people have gone missing, and the enigma of these disappearances is seemingly unsolvable. What exactly has been haunting these locals? When you stumble upon an old mansion with a horrifying past, you must explore its depths and its secrets to get to the bottom of everything, all while trying to save the struggling newspaper you work for. The clues are there, but the puzzle remains shrouded in mystery.

When you’re faced with frightening Philippine folklore classics like the White Lady, Aswang, Paring Pugot, and the Manananggal among many others, your first instinct is to do whatever you desperately can to survive. But when the whole game is a puzzle, prompting you to strategize, sneak from enemies, find keys to doors, and discover the haunting past of the former residents of the old mansion, you can’t help but want to be more involved and inevitably entangle yourself up with the secret of the whole place.  Complete with intense original scores and compositions as well as a chilling environment that goes perfectly well with its theme, the game employs 3D comic style effects to bring everything to life. Reminiscent of legends like Resident Evil and Silent Hill, Nightfall: Escape is one Pinoy pride you will definitely want to boast of.

Next…The making of Nightfall.
