Explore a vast array of tunnels and rooms, solving puzzles which have taken months to design. At the same time, these puzzles use the best of 2D and 3D environments to provide new ways of playing as well as new types of problems to be solved.

Nightfall uses stunning real time 3D graphics, haunting music, and a deep storyline to transport you to another world. The game is designed to be easy to use, and challenging to solve. Use your mind and/or your reflexes, and complete the game without violence, making it suitable for everyone to enjoy.

Nightfall is a real time 3D game, yet the patent-pending interface makes it easy to use, a natural progression beyond traditional 2D puzzle games. Moreover, the finesse of control, combined with the real time 3D environment, allows you the freedom to improvise. Instead of following prescribed, pre-rendered scenes, explore and control the world in your own way, and in your own time.

To enhance the experience still further, editing tools and code are included on the CD. Customize Nightfall, or make your own completely new 3D game. Find new games to play from the Internet. Finishing Nightfall is just the start!
