Hey there folks,

Long time no see. As always. We will try to make this announcement short and sweet so that you can go back playing.

We are super excited to announce that we have just pushed a new update 2.6.0 which contains our first iteration of VoIP. Courtesy of Vivox. Thank you Vivox!



From now on you will be able to create custom games with friends or strangers alike and play MINDNIGHT by communicating via your microphone. In-game you will still be able to type, but whenever someone will talk through his microphone, a small icon will be displayed above that specific player so that everyone will have an easy time following who is talking during gameplay.



This might seem like a small update, but this is our first step towards expanding the MINDNIGHT universe towards other platforms later this year. Yeap, in case you haven’t heard it from our Discord yet, we are preparing a mobile version of MINDNIGHT that will be available for both Android and iOS platforms. We cannot say for certain when that would be released, but it’s gonna be ready when it’s gonna be ready.


This mobile version will be loyal to its PC version and it will not change gameplay, offer weird in-app purchases or other mobile gimmicks. All additional features (top secret) that will be added on mobile, will be available on PC as well, and vice-versa. What??! Don't you guys have phones or what?


Work in progress!

The game will be cross-platform so everyone will be able to play on the same servers the same version of MINDNIGHT, together, forever.

We are working hard to balance things out in the reporting system, roll out more bans over overly toxic or abusive players. We made a promise and we will deliver on it. We will improve and grow MINDNIGHT until everyone on the planet will play the game at least once. And Pewdiepie, for the memes of course. It's just like Dark Souls.

That’s all for now, we won’t spoil anything else about that version of the game.

Last but not least - thank you to all of you that have helped test out everything before updating the game.

HmmmmMMMMmmmm

HmmmmmMMMMmm

Still Closed!

Cheers, be respectful in-game and if you have any feedback don't hesitate to join our Discord and wreck the channels.

Btw, the game is not dying. You're dying. We will make it grow once again soon, don't you worry. Watcha going to do about it? Help us or what?

Is it hot in here? We just updated the Server with a small hotfix update.

This update should fix the bugged out matches that were caused by the Party system.
At this point, I want to say sorry for the issues we had and also thank you for the help in hunting that nasty bug.
Here is a Redeem as a small excuse: "0b63a26248".
As always please let us know if you encounter any bug or issue with the game. The best way to do that is to join our discord discord.gg/nomoon .


Also, this update brings the Community Skin Bundle III, so you can get all the skins that were added with 2.5.0 at once.

Have a nice day!

It's now or never. You can now play with players that are similar in skill and level. With new skins, new maps created by the community and new music, it's the best time to stop complaining about noobs and start playing with real people.

Yes, noobs, we are working on a tutorial, we have heard it and we will do our best to implement it as fast as possible.

Scrape together, hoard the talented, forgather the pixels and cluster your ideas onto MINDNIGHT's first Map Contest.
Since the last Skin Community Creation contest, we have been asked hundreds of times when would we organize the next community contest.

Here we are now! We hope you gathered all your strength and patience cause this will be a hard one. A lot of explanation to do and a lot of instructions to respect in order to qualify as being the Map BG King. In addition in winning a lot of In-Game Credits, your map will be implemented in the game and we will also send a shiny nice MINDNIGHT T-shirt to your house. It will smell of indie developers, we apologize in advance. You should wash it before wearing it.

In order to participate you need to create a map background for MINDNIGHT in 2 weeks.
The contest will be over on the 22nd of July.
Current map backgrounds are two, Subway and Backalley. You can see them here.

Technical instructions

In order to create a map you need to know the following technical instructions:

  1. The map size in pixels is 789px X 338px
  2. This size represent a wide version, in order for the background to support wide-screens
  3. Here you can download a .psd, in case you use Photoshop. In the .psd you will be able to see the folowing layers:
- Subway_BG and BackAlley_BG for your reference
- Instructions layer group with: 16:9 Visible area on screens with that aspect ratio, a safezone of the Character Area aka where the skins and players reside with their chat bubbles and last but no least Players Layer, where you are able to see the layout of a full 8-man game session
- Also you will be able to see a HUD layer, where we have the HUD elements accordingly to a 1920 by 1080 resolution.

In order for the map to be eligible for the contest it needs to respect the size.
The map can be created in any other software.

In order to facilitate other community members creations in other software we have created this album, with all of the layers separately in PNGs for your discretion to import them.

Artistic instructions

There is not much to tell here, but we recommend in using the same perspective in order to keep the map consistent with other maps. The perspective that we are talking it's a one-point perspective where buildings and objects have their sides hidden and not visible. See the other two maps for your reference.

You have creative freedom as long as it does not contain nudity, sexual and religious themes or other subjects that are perceived as being controversial topics in the world right now. You cannot depict alive or dead characters or locations with religious or political meaning.

It's a plus if the map will contain lore elements and/or it's part of San Francisco, where most of the action and story takes part in MINDNIGHT. If you are keen in using or respecting the lore, here you will find a resume of the game's lore.

Prizes and Rules

  1. The map is eligible if it respects the 789px X 338px size
  2. Any map that steals content or it's not an original creation will be disqualified and the respective player will also be banned from all MINDNIGHT servers.
  3. Any map that contains inappropriate content will be disqualified.
  4. In order to be eligible for the contest you need to submit your map file/s via Reddit, Discord (map-contest channel) or e-mail at contact [at] nomoon.io by the 22nd of July 2018. You can send a download link through Dropbox, Google Drive or WeTransfer. Any other link created by any other provider will be ignored and disqualified.

THE WINNERS WILL RECEIVE:

1st place - 100.000 In-Game Credits and an exclusive skin that is no longer on sale, chosen by you. And a MINDNIGHT T-shirt.

2nd place - 50.000 In-Game Credits

3rd place - 25.000 In-Game Credits

Worst Map Background (but usable) - 10.000 In-Game Credits


The Map Contest starts now! Good luck and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to join our Discord and tag the devs.
