About the Game

Welcome explorer. Once more into the long night?

A charming twin-stick action roguelike adventure with a heavy emphasis on chaotic combat, cute characters and mystery!

Explore The Dark Mountain - a subterranean world full of monsters, secrets and lovable characters. Puzzle, upgrade and battle your way through three randomly generated areas to outrun a deadly storm and escape to the Overworld beyond. Uncover a trail of mysteries in this ancient kingdom of demigods and explorers, captured within an endless time loop.

What treasures await in The Overworld? Is there a way to stop the storm from spreading? Can you escape the endless time loop? All may be revealed beyond the long night.


  • A charming single player adventure set in a world caught in a time loop.
  • Shoot, dodge, throw items and use Superpowers to fight your way through The Dark Mountain.
  • All upgrades are infinitely stackable and combine with each other to create chaotic combinations.
  • The bunting has physics.
  • Outrun a deadly storm that spreads from chamber to chamber, chasing you up the mountain.
  • A colourful cast of charming characters who remember you between runs.
  • Motivational cows?
  • Discover puzzles and secrets scattered throughout the world.
  • Randomly generated maps built from individually handcrafted rooms.
  • A killer soundtrack inspired by retro chip tune but with a modern twist.

Hahahaha thank you :D I agree! Mac port is gonna be the first stretch goal on our Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/noisyheadgames/beyond-the-long-night


Loved the game and can't wait to see more! great job so far.

Ah fab! Thank you for playing and uploading your thoughts, really glad you enjoyed yourself :)

That was a lot of fun, keep up the excellent work.


Nice one! Glad you enjoyed yourself :D please consider signing up to the Kickstarter prelaunch page if you fancy supporting, or even just on Steam - both help out and are really appreciated :) ta! 


What a satisfying experience. I must have sunk over 25 hours into this demo already, its bananas. Replay-ability value is off the charts. Looks like a cute casual game but don't be fooled; it can be challenging. One more amazing game that will sit high on the scale of what makes a great roguelike.


This game is a lot of fun. I like the concept of having to go from the start but improving each time and it works really well in the gameplay setting


Hey! Really glad you enjoyed yourself :) if you're interested, the game is coming to Kickstarter in the near future, and I'd be honoured if you wanted to help support development. Sorry for the shameless plug hehe - either way, super happy you had fun :)
