Nana in the Dark is a small story driven adventure game which bases off the ‘survive each night’ scenario. First thing that stood out whilst playing this game was the calm relaxing music when you begin the game, unfortunately day doesn’t last forever… At night you have to defend yourself with your dog side companion Candy who fetches you batteries to help survive the night.

Interestingly the ghosts, unidentified things attack you; the torch is used as a weapon to burn these creatures but their never ending all night! The game restricts you from staying inside the apartment for too long which is a great game mechanic, especially when you are searching for sparkles to forward time. Time after time I kept replaying levels because simply they were too challenging, found the game addicting as a result.
To the developer’s credit ‘Nana in the Dark’ is fun, challenging with user controlled cut scenes. But there are some features which should be nerfed and implemented to improve the overall gameplay experience.

- Firstly, the unidentified things spawn too often which can cause performance issues and makes the game too challenging at times especially when retreating indoors.
- Secondly, Candy provides batteries too often making it rare to run out
- Lastly, the map is too small with little area to move

Unfortunately there are some slight performance issues on my GTX 960, sometimes the game would slow down or freeze but fixed itself.

Overall Nana in the Dark is a game with fun, addicting core game elements and room for improvement, if you have a day spare, don’t mind the price and like what you read in this review I would recommend picking the game up.
