Nyctophobia is a game of strategy and survival, guessing and second-guessing. You and your fellow players are stranded in a field inexplicably covered with remote-control lightbulbs in the middle of the night. Your mission is simple enough: stay in the light to avoid being eaten by the Horrible Monstrous Nightmare Beasts. But the lightbulbs are burning out fast, and the Horrible Monstrous Nightmare Beasts are getting hungry... your only hope for survival is to try to appease their appetite by getting the other players eaten before you do.

(Nyctophobia is a multi-player game. You are free to download and play it on your own, but it won't do much good unless you host it so other people can play against you!)
