Nothing takes me back to those good old days of childhood more than a video game where televisions are basically spiders and our protagonist inhabits a Cronenberg shadow world. Between Me and The Night [official site], oh what a beaut' this is. A surreal action adventure about a kid on the edge and the mysterious house that he lives in.
The project's makers at RainDance LX have brought the game to the people for a bit of feedback, launching it on Steam Early Access on Friday. Video after the jump.
"A surrealist, yet grounded, videogame that dares to walk the thin path between sanity and madness," is what the studio call it. "Between Me And The Night is a videogame that dwells on duality: good vs. evil; sanity vs. insanity; day vs. night. Take on the role of a young boy and explore and interact with the mysterious house in which he lives. Solve puzzles around the house to reveal new places, help you overcome the shadows of the night and discover the strange world beyond it's walls."
Between Me and the Night has been in development for some time now, with an initial release intended for summer of 2014. The studio had actually brought this to Indiegogo in 2013 with a $70,000 funding goal but failed to reach their target by quite a margin.
Now the team are looking to October 2015 as their release target, but for now they're tweaking and grinding their way to the finish line. Between Me and The Night costs £12.74 on Steam Early Access for Windows.
