Fight the fright. Find the light
One night, as you're driving alone along a dirt road in your pickup truck, you take a wrong turn into the depths of the mysterious Lakeview Woods. Your fears come alive. You are plunged into darkness and move slowly across unfamiliar terrain. You are pursued by a man known only as "The Keeper" who scatters cryptic messages throughout the woods. The gameplay is tense as you collect battery packs to keep your flashlight lit or else be swallowed by the darkness. There are key items you must collect that serve a purpose toward reaching the ultimate goal of bringing back the light. The map is expansive with numerous different environments to explore and challenges to overcome. Can you defeat the darkness?

UPDATE 6/29:

This is totally something that was rushed.

Ok, um, One, @hammckhead, if you know the dev personally, then if you up-vote the game it's not really being decided entirely by the community and thus might not represent what the community wants.

two, WHY was there a tanker train car moving on rails without anything pulling it? also why did have a light on it, and why was it so much bigger than the bridge???

@wilco - no this is a new Nyctophobia. Apologies about the ads, Youtube applied them automatically. I finally found out how to turn them off.

Is this the same Nyctophobia game that was released a few years ago or a totally different game? If it's not the same you may encounter some confusion with the name. Also you should really turn off monetization in your video, comes across as unprofessional.
