I'm recommending this game, but only because I'm biased. I like short, minimalist narrative games, and I like Brazilian culture, so I appreciate this game more than most people. If you don't like either of those things, this game won't change your mind.

The Last NightMary: a Lenda do Cabeça de Cuia (literally: the legend of gourd head) is a short narrative game based on folklore famous in the Northeast Region of Brazil. Cabeça de Cuia is an undead monster, and he's out to kill the protagonist, who has been hallucinating about him for some time. The goal is to avoid capture, and find a way to put him to rest.

Most of the gameplay is split between two sections, wandering a grassland maze, and light inventory puzzles. The maze is not very fun; there aren't many landmarks leading you to your destination, so its easy to get lost. There is no map screen, and if you pause to get your bearings, the monster is likely to come out of the bushes and attack you, giving you a few seconds to click to another part of the maze, or die. A map screen would have made it a lot more manageable, especially a real-time one to make it more tense with the monster chasing you.

The inventory puzzles are easy, but fine. At first the puzzles are only in places where the protagonist is safe, but there are a small number in the maze later on. Interestingly, around 90% of the "puzzles" are simply looking for objects located in places around the environment. It's not quite a hidden object game, but it's reminiscent of them. Most of the true puzzles are thankfully straightforward. Match to lamp, knife to rope, battery to radio, etc. The last puzzle was very challenging, so much that I needed some hints to solve it. It wasn't something that I thought I would figure out in my own, but there was a type of logic to it that made it less frustrating than other adventure games.

The art is very good. Many of the puzzle screens remind me of impressionist paintings, albeit morbid ones. The river in particular would make a great computer background. The way Cabeça de Cuia's previous victims are portrayed is very sad. It makes it easy to be sympathetic towards them, despite them not having any dialogue or any real interaction with you. Drowned Mary is particularly effective, I cringed when I saw what had happened to her.

The sound design is decent as well. The sound effects do a good job of building tension, especially with the monster and other sudden sounds. There is occasionally music, which isn't bad, but isn't something I found particularly memorable. There is a surprising amount of voice acting as well. It's mostly fine, but the delivery leaves a bit to be desired. I'm not fluent in Portuguese (yet), but it feels like the actress was reading from a script and not in any actual danger.

In summary, this game is actually not bad. It's a bit barebones, but shows high enough production value to be worth the price. I would for sure recommend it on a sale, and will be hoping for a new game from this developer.

Game was very good. Liked the setting and the fact that it was in a different language with subtitles. The sound effects were very well done and made my heart race a few times. Not difficult at all. Can easily be passed in under and hour. Very nicely done. Easy point and click game.

An underwhelming MystLike point-and-clicker with an illogical final puzzle and not much else going on. There's a bit of anxiety present, namely from what amounts to a "timer" on the screens - linger too long, and ~the scarrrry monnnnster~ approaches, requiring you to quickly leave the screen and come back - but not much in the way of actual horror, just a bit of spooky atmosphere here and there.

There's worse games out there, but there are far better ones too. $0.64 on sale is an okay price, especially if you're into trading cards, but there's also better MystLike gaming experiences to be had for free. Give it a bit of a bump if you're a speaker of Portuguese and are hungry for more native-Portuguese games on Steam, but otherwise, don't expect much here. I'd give the guy a passing grade on his Visual Arts final, with no reservations, but I can't give this a thumbs up.

Good indie horror for a couple of hours you will take. Not the usual story, the Monster is a baddie. In short all the advice!

The Last NightMary is a relatively simple horror game, with a little bit of replayability, particularly for achievements and alternate endings, with each runthrough talking 10-20 minutes.

To start off with the problems, firstly, the game would, even though it's short, benefit from a save function, and I found the lack of that rather frustrating, particularly as it's tough to skip through the opening text. I played the game in windowed mode, and I did also find some issues with some text, especially during the endings, being cut off. I didn't try it in full screen, so that may be a better option for gameplay. Finally, the last problem that really shows up is that the game was originally in Portuguese, and while the translation is mostly good, there's still some problems, and the endings and journal entries, in particular, really could have improved writing to flow better in English.

All that said, the game is ultimately meant to be scary, and the game goes about it in a way that is fairly straightforward, but really effective. The sound of the demon (of sorts) in the game approaching is fairly unpredictable (if not random), but it gives the game a frantic pace, and since I started playing this in the middle of the night, it did a good enough job for me to stop playing until it would be daylight.

Overall, for a few bucks it's a decent (although not great) storyline and a pretty effective scare the first few run throughs.

Awful game. You have to KNOW where you have to go, othewise you are lost because there is no map or hint telling you which way to go. I tried it for about 10 minutes on my own but did only find the house and did not get to the river to pick up the key no matter where I went. I was already stuck after 5 minutes... And it is only clicking and when the creature is near you it isn't even scaring, so I quickly became BORED and VERY FRUSTRATED !!

Sorry but
I WOULDN'T SUGGEST ANYBODY TO BUY THIS GAME !

+ good hand painted visulas/ screens

- very short, if you know what you are supost to do you can finish it in like 10 min or so, but there are different ending, one can be achived in less than a minute but this is not the good one :P
- on two monitor setup you can easily go out of the game and minimalize it by simply moving your mouse out of the screen edge
- on higher resolutions like 2560x1440 jurnal is almost unreadable, way to small letters :/
- almost non existed game menu, you can only change language here
- you have to "scan" environment to see if you can picks something up or interact with something
- "escaping" monster isn't exactly hard to do and after first try it is just oh monster meh, nothing special move on :)
- navigation is very old school, no map and you have to remember where you are, it's gets quite boring and monster "chasing" you doesn't make in any more interesting, but after couple more playtrought it is not a problem anymore
- alien ending looks like drawn by kid, well maybe not really kid but quality is much much lower the other parts of game, like a sketch with basic color

The Last NightMary, developed by Submersivo Game Studio, doesn’t bring anything groundbreaking to the point-and-click genera, but it makes up for this with its narrative and intrigue.

Most of the player’s time is spent wandering through misty marshlands, hunting for different clue items scattered throughout the maze. Oddly, despite looking quite nice, the maze’s layout isn’t very distinct, which resulted in me walking in a circle five times before getting anywhere. But the satisfaction I felt when stumbling across a rotten fishing dock, or the aging ruins of a forsaken hut, made up for it.

The puzzles are nothing to write home about. They don’t break from the norm, but they get the job done. Sometimes quantity surpasses quality. They’re simple, fun and they don’t hold your hand.

The monster, again, is nothing special. He will occasionally present himself in random areas of the maze, sometimes through a guttural cry of agony, or a sudden leap from the tall grass. He isn’t too scary, per say, but knowing that he may appear at any moment forced me into an uneasy haste.

I managed to beat The Last Nightmary in a little under an hour, BUT there is still a large majority of content I haven’t discovered yet. In fact, the game itself encourages players to run through it multiple times. I ended up with the ‘GOOD’ ending, but I’m definitely gonna give the game a few more tries.

Lastly, the English translation isn’t the best. Anyone who’s grasped the language will spot a fair amount of mistranslations in the game’s text. But, seeing as this was developed by a group of college kids from Brazil, I’m still satisfied with the outcome.

To sum it all up, The Last Nightmary is a fun, simple horror experience that should keep you interested from beginning to end. I assume you can soak up 3 to 4 hours of this game if you attempt to unlock all the endings and secrets. For its asking price, I’d say it’s worth a buy.

This game is a very short and sweet point and click with nice puzzle solving skills for the attentive. Although I'm not so sure on the horror aspect of it, it did have a nice, almost mythical, backstory to explain the plot better.

In my one play through of the game, I did NOT encounter the monster 1 time, all though the game tells me I had 2 close encounters. Just keep moving between areas FAST and the monster should NOT be able to catch you.

You play the role of the last Mary. Why last, you ask? Well, she is lost in the haunted forest where a cursed creature is that is killing all virgin Mary. As the last one surviving, she doesn't gave up on hope and it's up to you what it's gonna happen, the game has various endings.

Gameplay-wise it's a point and click adventure game that went many years back in terms of the technical quality. Most of the screens are just copypasted with few changed details, as they are composited into a small maze. There isn't any proper animation, you just blink through the screens from first-person view. The story is there but it's just a slightly more thought in compare to a porn screenplay.

What is the main thing about The Last NightMary, is the horror atmosphere, that has been built well and gives you a reason to be scared, since you can really die. Well, at least for the first few moments, since you can always escape the creature really easily.

It's a short adventure game (~30 minutes to get the basic "good" ending) that doesn't offer much interesting story, is missing a features that are axiomatic for the P&C adventure genre (your cursor isn't even highlighted if you point an item to any object in the scene) and is based purely on the atmosphere. But that's not enough entertainment, considering that you'll be mostly walking through the copypasted maze scenes.

Fun fact: If you check the game's screenshots, you have already seen majority of the game scenes.

Might be a little tame by most horror fans standpoint. I personally found it very creepy and disturbing. The puzzles aren't all that complicated, it's more of a run around and collect things kind of game.

The biggest knock against the game is how long it is. It took me just under an hour to complete it and get the "Good" ending. There is some replay value in multiple endings as well as a new secret to uncover (No spoilers! :D) during the second playthrough.

Altogether I'd say it was worth it and it gets my recommend, but beware that it is somewhat of a short adventure!

The creepy art style shown is basically what caught my attention and attracted me to this game. It presents an unsettling atmosphere which compliments the way the story was told. The "monster" presented no threats to me during my entire play session and its movement patterns made no sense in regards to the protagonist's navigation of the maze. Unfortunately the main downside to this game is its length. It feels more like a demo than an entire game. It felt like a tease for something bigger that never got fleshed out.

It's weird. To some extent I enjoyed what I played but felt unfulfilled and disappointed in the end. I'd still recommend the game because despite its downfalls, it's definitely not a terrible game. I'd go as far as to say that the developer should definitely take their skills and make a game with a more expansive scope. If the gameplay in regards to the "monster" was fleshed out some more or required some sort of actual skill to avoid him, I'd have a greater feeling of satisfaction. They also need to get a better English translator.

There are multiple endings apparently but I can assure you the second ending I achieved felt even less fulfilling than the first. I'll pass on playing this multiple times again since the gameplay itself was lacking for me to begin.

I liked it for what it is. A short horror puzzel game. A bit to short I think. I finished it 2 times and the second time there where a few new things and it seems you can get different endings depending on what information you get and what you do. But I really did not get that invested to try and find it all. But I liked the atmosphere of the game.
