Noct is a super cool 2D top-down night-vision multiplayer survival horror game that blends arcade combat with survival gameplay and features some particularly terrifying monsters.
Viewed through the thermal imaging of a satellite, Noct‘s sinister visual style is immediately unsettling – especially when you encounter an enemy. As you explore the vast wasteland, searching for weapons and supplies, encounters with fast and deadly monsters are a constant threat, and thanks to a clever field of view system you’re never sure where the next one is coming from. The fact that the night-vision only lets you see the ghostly silhouettes of the monsters makes them even more terrifying – your imagination fills in the blanks.
It must be stressed that the Noct Prototype is still very early in development, so the gameplay is fairly basic at the moment, with your goal simply to survive, collecting supplies and fending off enemy attacks. But as a proof of concept it’s superb, the audio and visual design convey a real sense of atmosphere that will have you on the edge of your seat, and you can even play in multiplayer if you’d rather not go it alone.
Even in these early stages Noct is shaping up to be something pretty special, a tense, dread-filled survival horror with fantastic visual design.
