What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Afraid of the Night being the first game developed by CatMania Studio, the early-access version will provide us with valuable and indispensable data to finalize its development.


Afraid of the Night is a difficult game, and in ways that are unconventional for a modern game. Information about its mechanisms is scarce, and is thus designed to create a more immersive gaming experience. Such difficulties could perhaps prevent the current player from getting the most out of the title. Early access will help us gather very important data on how to ultimately address this difficulty.


Early access will allow us to know what players who already enjoy such games think, as well as players who have tried it more out of curiosity. Their feedback will help us build a game experience for the final version that everyone will ultimately enjoy.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game to remain in early access for at least 9 months. New content will be added as we progress towards the final version.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The following things will be slowly added to the early access version:
  • More chapters
  • More paranormal events
  • More random events
  • More enemies
  • More distinct environments
  • More "mental health" mechanisms
  • More languages
  • More content related to what players think of the early access version

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The early-access version allows between 2 and 4 hours of play. The gambler has access to only a certain part of the house, and can play only one of the four chapters.

*Important note: it is likely that parts saved in early access will be erased for the final version. If these saved games do not cause any bugs, they will be kept. Please note, however, that the non-linear nature of the final version will make the loss of the saved parts almost inconsequential.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Since the content of the early access version is limited, the game is cheaper for a limited time as well. The price is expected to increase at or before the release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We'll be interested in player feedback everywhere, whether it's by e-mail, in the Steam forums, or on Discord. This feedback, which is described in more detail in the section "Why Early Access", will allow us to properly design the final version so that it is appreciated by all.”
