Fun little game. Just enough things to manage at once without being overwhelming.
A downloadable game for Windows and macOS
Are you brave enough to find out what Dwells in the Dark? Come and relive your childhood nightmares, keeping monsters at bay with nothing but your nightlight. Darkness Dwells is a first person horror game, placing you in the eyes of a child trying to survive the night until your parents check in on you.
Flashing the rocking horse too quickly does seem to glitch it out, we are working on it. :)

Cool game even tho it was short
Nice game, even if, it was frustrating in places. Be interesting to see more.
I love the creature designs! Thanks for the awesome game!
Tonight I Don't Want To Sleep Alone! lol Very interesting early access!
FIRST Italian gameplay on youtube!
This was fun! I want to see this become a full game of more levels and new creatures to eat you in your sleep!
This was great, I do feel like it was too easy though.
Had a lot of fun with this game! Very entertaining and spooky!
This was a simple game, but managed to be alright considering that it had similar mechanics to fnaf
This is a really good game, and the ambiance is killer. The sound ques are on point with the monsters. The art style is GREAT! loved the way they were drawn. You guys have great potential, and seriously consider doing it as a full game with a story.
This game is interesting
Really good game, I mixed this footage with that of another game , I hope you don't mind??
Ah this was pretty good for a bit of high anxiety! The format is good, the creepy atmosphere really comes across well and the monsters are indeed creepalicious, but the one night on display here is a bit easy.
If you ever expand upon things and add some more nights, maybe throw an interesting backstory in there somewhere and a couple more monsters to keep an eye on you'd really be on to something! But this was fun for what it was, keep up the great work everyone! =)
I had completely forgotten to share my video of this game. When I had played this originally, it stopped being scary after a short while. And the only monster that ever actually got me was the one under the bed. It was rather easy to avoid dying from the other monsters.
But the real issue I have with this game is that it's rather boring after a short while like I said before. And the game lasted so long, I was getting tired of playing it.
This game was really good. Would say to make it harder if you add additional nights to the game. As this was too easy to do. Good job
Its good but I think you should have the game restart the level rather than going back to the main menu, just developer to developer advice.
Wow this is a very nice difference from your last game! Really nicely done, the ambiance is pretty darn good and the mechanics work fairly well. Hope you're able to get some more monsters in to make it more challenging! Good job either way duder.
What an awsome game!! Character design is brilliant!
Great job, can't wait to see the fuller version of it. Also - nice voice acting.
I really enjoyed this one! I wish it was longer and had more monsters to deal with! After getting the hang of it, it's actually pretty easy, so more of a challenge would be awesome! But like I said I really did enjoy it!
Awesome! The atmosphere was on point! Keep up the good work! Can't wait to see this in later development!
fun and creepy game, so many monsters to keep track of! I didn't get far but had a ton of fun ;P
Game mechanics were decent! Really surprised me for a free horror game. I like the bedroom setting and the concept on how to dispel
all the monsters was dope! Only thing that was annoying was holding left click the whole time because If you don't the blanket is constantly being taken away. But other than that this game was dope!
Needs some polish. I see you're aware of the rocking horse glitch, so hopefully that gets fixed soon. Otherwise, seems like another Sit 'n' Survive with a little character. Appreciate the voice acting! Great work, keep it up!
I absolutley love this game. Had a blast playing it. Mechanics work perfect. The only drawback that I can see currently is lack of content. If this is only night one then this has been a job well done. Please add more content. This game deserves it! Overall 8/10 Would scream like a girl again!
Once I got a hang of the controls I was alright... but GOOD LORD THE JUMPSCARES IN THE BEGINNING.
Good Game! but Very Short XD
I loved playing this wonderfully terrifying game [FR]
amazing for a demo! looking forward on the full version!
amazing graphics! amazing mechanics!
Really cool monsters and mechanics! Got some spooks but survived at the end!
This was nice. I got to hang out with Joe and Nosferatu and some jerk under the bed who has a vacuum mouth.
Kept me engaged, got a couple spooks in, tidy little package of a game you made here.
I'd love to see a version where you play as the dad who it turns out is equally scared of monsters, something to really laugh at.'
What if... Someone came from the window too? Idk man good game anyways :D
Not bad for a demo, you've got some good ideas.
Very spooky game. It has the mechanics of FNAF or Boogeyman. The graphics are good and the ambiance is great.
J'étais vraiment pas loin! Le jeu a une super ambiance et offre une bonne difficulté. J'ai adoré!
A very cool fnaf style game it was actually quite challenging but the mechanics made the game very fun and interesting good luck on the future of this
