The tone and feel of this were so perfect. Very creepy, spooky and definitely feels like it would be an episode of the Twilight Zone during the 60s.

So, so good. You captured the Twilight Zone atmosphere perfectly and really keep us guessing. I played this for my Bloodcurdling Barrage in which I do daily videos for all of October. I can't wait for a third episode.
Enjoyed the first one, this was no different.
I seem to remember a little more morality or lesson to learn from the Twilight Zone episodes, whereas in this episode it's like the whole world ends because this guy was a good guy? Felt a little cynical
Look forward to episode 3 XD
Thanks so much for another amazing Pixel Game, Octavi Navarro!
I really enjoy your games and I´m rooting for you to make more. The retro black and white style fits the story perfectly, I loved every single detail you put on this game and the ending was really cool, although I knew something was off since the moment I saw Linda. The music was also beautiful to listen to and matched every shot of the game, nicely done, my dear!
I´m super glad to have found your games, they are truly splendid.
I've been binging your games, and it's been a complete blast!!! your pixel art is so beautiful, and the creepy atmosphere without going over the top is perfect for a wimpy horror fan like me! i really liked this one in particular, the ending felt delightfully wrong
Wowie. Wowie wowie, Awesome yet again. thrilling and scary at times with a huge twist. Keep em coming cause we love em
This is a fantastic game, it reminds me of the old twilight zone a bit. Good story with nice pacing and a great ending. I can't wait to see all the story's that are created.
I loved every second of this game , i can confirm this is my favorite franchise on itch
We're officially crazy for Octavi Navarro, this second episode not only confirms his talent, but also his unique capacity at telling complex and absolutely immersive stories. Every little detail of this short game has been thought through in every aspect, In just 16 bits it gifts us a unique atmosphere. If you didn't play the first one, then do it. If you haven't played this one yet, what are you waiting for?
Yet another beautiful game! I genuinely cannot wait for more, the sound design is superb and the graphics really give you a sense of terrifying nostalgia!
Even better than the first, hope you keep making these :)
Ah~! Cannot wait for Episode 3! keep it up!♥
Fun time! I think I was more into the story for the first one but still dug it!
Btw, I am a brazilian guy and the gameplay is in portuguese
Thanks for the game!
gosh, these games are so good. this one blew my expectations out of the water, i played the first game and this game back to back and wow! the improvement is amazing. this is probably one of my favorite itch.io game series! the visuals, the mechanics- they are all wonderful! but what really was amazing was the writing and music, the writing was phenomenal for this game! i loved every second of this game, what an amazing work of art. <3
I played The Librarian and the first episode of Midnight Scenes, so I had to play this second episode and I really enjoyed it! I love the old school horror feel that this game gives and the puzzles are just right, not frustrating to solve at all. I really like the Midnight Scenes series and I look forward to the third episode if you're working on it. Keep up the great work! I also made a gameplay video for this if anyone is interested in watching. Thank you for your time and have an awesome day! :3
Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it :) Very soon we'll release a Special edition of both Midnight Scenes games. Stay tuned!
A bit too long but good game. While I edit it check this out...tried to make it funny
This game was so awesomeeee!!! please make a third one, PLEASE
Hi, I love this game. This is my gameplay in Spanish!!
I was craving for a good horror game and omg Midnight Scenes is wonderful! The ambience and storytelling are impeccable, would love to pay some dollars if my country's currency wasn't so dead. I really loved it!!
Pros and cons are down below) Check out my vid here:
1. I love how this episode is rich story wise even comparing to the first one! I can't imagine what will happen next. Though, I must admit the plot twist was a bit trivial. Still, I enjoyed that a lot!
2. The style is definitely game's strength. It is so visually beautiful and involving. Especially adored last scenes in the episode!
1. I suppose that this episode is less scary or creepy than the first one. I would like to see an extremely terrifying episode - can't wait for it!
2. At the start my game completely froze. It can be seen in the video. I had to quit the process in the task manager and restart. It worked fine after that. Also, before opening the curtains the game made an attempt to crash again and froze for a couple of secs but it was fine. I have a strong computer, so I decided to point these bugs out, so they could be fixed if possible.
These episodes are amazing! Can't wait for more. It would be super duper cool if all the stories turn out to be connected at the very end in some unexpected way just like in Stories Untold, for example. Overall, I still regard this experience as a 5-star one! Keep going!
Hope my feedback was useful!
I absolutely love the Midnight Scenes such a great concept and done so well!
I love the Midnight Scenes and pretty much everything Octavi has put out on here. Here's a quick video of my experience!
This was a cool episode. Did you name the airline Burgess after the actor Burgess Meredith who starred in four episodes of The Twilight Zone? If so, nice easter egg. I hope to see more Midnight Scenes in the future.
Well spotted! :) Yeah, Mr. Meredith was an icon of the series, and so I wanted to make him this small homage.
3rd part of librarian.
OMG!!! This looks so avantgarde and beautiful ! True mastery of pixel design!!! 💙 can't wait to play this one!!!
I played it i loved but I couldn't make it funny while recording so played ur other game
-Made a Video. (Old Video)
Wow after playing the first one. I had a great time. I knew I had to find the next one to play. I hope you continue to make more short stories like these.
I know this is an old game, and probably pretty hidden on itch.io but after play Midnight Scenes part 1. I was compelled to find more of your games. its such a treat when I get greeted by the old school 2d pixelated artwork. Brings back my child hood! I want more!!!!
I'm hesitant to give it 4 stars due it not fully indulging in it's creepy otherworldly atmosphere, but it's presence does benefit the otherwise well made story.
This game is really great
the story and the artwork is really amazing
So I played through the first game, I could not wait to get to this one and now that I've played it I've got to say I LOVED this entry in the series and can't wait for any future installments. The story is solid and had me immersed in the world which was so lovingly crafted that I can't express how much I adore it. Seriously little details like the curved corners and the plane being held on strings really got me sucked into the old TV show vibe this game was going for. The writing and overall story were fun and I have to stop before I just make an essay because I'm writing this 10 minutes after finishing it.
